Career Assessments

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.

Myers Briggs Type Indicator > Log in 

The purpose of the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator® (MBTI®) personality inventory is to make the theory of psychological types described by C. G. Jung understandable and useful in people’s lives. The essence of the theory is that much seemingly random variation in the behavior is actually quite orderly and consistent, being due to basic differences in the ways individuals prefer to use their perception and judgment. 

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. 

Contact the Career Center to get a login and password for both the MBTI and the Strong Interest Inventory. Once you have completed the assessment, call the Career Center at 843-863-8019 and schedule an appointment to obtain and review your results.

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 assessment, 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 for counseling or interpretation.

 

WORKUNO STRENGTHS TEST

 The Online Strengths Test will help you identify, develop and find the perfect combination of your Top Strengths.  Being passionate about your work is one of the keys to success and happiness. 

  • Do you know how your Strengths naturally combine?
  • At which work or area would you be the most successful?

Many people have never discovered their Strengths and their true interests; others while struggling to get an education, find jobs, raise families, and pay bills have forgotten what they actually wanted to do with their lives.  Building your career choices around your Strengths is extremely powerful.  Success comes more easily when you are doing work where Strengths, Passion and Meaning are engaged. All too often, our natural talents go untapped. From the cradle to the cubicle, we devote more time to fixing our shortcomings than to developing our strengths.

This Test will help you find your preferred way of thinking, feeling, and behaving. These questions and results were crafted based on the Personality and Strengths Movements.  Once completed, you may print  your FULL results to discover how you ranked on all 34 talents.

 To take the test, go to http://freestrengthstest.workuno.com/free-strengths-test.html

You may schedule an appointment with a career counselor to discuss your results at any time.
