Self-assessment is a process by which you learn more about yourself – what you like, what interests you and how you tend to react to certain situations. Knowing these things can help you identify career direction and determine what occupations might fit you better than others. The assessments listed below are frequently used in our office as an initial step in the career planning process. We recommend scheduling an appointment with a counselor to help interpret your assessment results.

Strong Assessment > Log in
The Strong Assessment measures your interest in a broad range of occupations, work activities, leisure activities and school subjects. The questionnaire compares how these interests are similar to the interests of people successfully employed in those occupations. It is used to help you understand work interests and to illustrate the kinds of work where you might be most satisfied.
Place Assessment > Log in
PLACE is an intentional process to connect church members to purpose-driven ministry including self-discovery, individualized ministry coaching and tracking from workshop to ministry placement. Through the PLACE process, people discover that God has created and gifted them with a unique capacity to serve others.

The Self-Directed Search (SDS) Career Inventory > Log in
The Self Directed Search (SDS) is a CAREER INVENTORY developed by Dr. John L. Holland, and it is based on the theory that people are happier and more successful in jobs that match their interests, values and skills. According to the theory, people can be loosely classified into six personality types: Realistic, Investigative, Artistic, Social, Enterprising and Conventional (RIASEC). Types that are next to one another on the hexagon are most similar. Types that are opposite one another are least similar.
After taking the test, you will be prompted to enter the User ID number and Password, which may be obtained from the Career Center. The user identification number and passwords are required to generate a confidential, eight-to-12 page interpretive report. The customized report is sent directly to the test taker's computer, where it can be stored or printed for easy reference. When you have completed the SDS Inventory, you may call the Career Center at 843-863-8019 to schedule an appointment.
