Choosing a career path—or even deciding on a major—can be difficult. We have assessment tools to measure your interests and aptitudes, and advisors to help you interpret the results and evaluate options for your future.
Missouri Connections is an excellent internet-based career assessment tool that helps you select one or more career paths to explore. It provides an immediate online report that can help you choose an education path or an occupation. You can access this assessment through mySTAR under the Student tab; go to the Work Resources channel and select Career Assessment and Skills Inventory.
The Self-Directed Search (SDS) is a career interest test that asks questions about aspirations, activities, skills, and interests in different jobs. From the responses, the SDS produces your personal three-letter Summary Code, which you can use to find occupations and fields of study that match well with your personality.
Paper/Pencil Assessments include Myers-Briggs, Self-Directed Search, CITE, and others.
A career advisor is available to help you explore the results of your career assessments, evaluate options for the future or make a decision about your career. Call to schedule an appointment today.
