Ø     Process of Choosing a Major Workshop   Register
At this workshop you’ll learn how to choose a major and what techniques you can use to explore your options. Part of choosing a major encourages students to align their personality type with their interests. This workshop introduces two career assessment tools, the Strong Interest Inventory (SII) and the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI). It also introduces other factors to guide you through the process of choosing a major. You will leave the workshop with an access code to take the SII and MBTI and a better understanding of how to move forward with selecting the major that is right for you. Be sure to sign up for the MBTI and SII Results Workshop, to connect your personality type to your interests, after you have taken these assessments.
Ø     Myers-Briggs/Strong Results Workshop   Register
At this workshop we will interpret your results from the Strong Interest Inventory (SII) and the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI) assessments. Discover your top career interests, identify with particular majors, and better understand your unique personality style! Assessments codes/access to these assessment tests can be obtained at the “Process of Choosing a Major Workshop” or from a Career Counselor.
