StrengthsQuest Logo

  • Confused about your major or career?  Find out more about your personality type with the help of your career coach and the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI).  Get your user name and password after meeting with your career coach.

  • The Strong Interest Inventory (SSI) assessment uses Holland's Theory of Career Choice to help you identify and find meaning in your interests in order to help you choose a major or a career.  Come to the career center to meet with your career coach to discuss the ways in which the SII can help you!  Get your username and password after meeting with your career coach!
