Students enrolled in our BUSI classes will complete career assessments that align with the course objective. These assessments include the Strong Interest Inventory, Myers-Briggs Type Indicator, Clifton Strengths for Students (formerly StrengthsQuest), and DISC. If you haven’t taken a BUSI course or want to learn more about our assessments, and schedule an appointment with one of our career coaches via Handshake.
Strong Interest Inventory (SII) matches your interests with the interests of people who have been in career fields for at least three years and are happy with their work. To take this assessment, make an appointment on Handshake for Career Exploration and Research. In this appointment, we will discuss the SII in a little more depth and you’ll receive instructions for taking the assessment.
The Myers Briggs Type Indicator, or MBTI, is a self-report assessment designed to identify personality types so they are understandable and useful in everyday life. Your assessment results will enhance your understanding of yourself, your motivations, natural strengths, preferences, and potential areas for growth. Having this knowledge and understanding will help you explore possible career options based on your personality.
To take this assessment, you must first make an appointment on Handshake for Career Exploration and Research. You will meet with an advisor to discuss the MBTI in more depth and receive the instructions for taking the assessment.
