Discover Yourself

Planning a successful career path starts with knowing who you are: your strengths, interests, values, motivations, and personality.  How do you discover these things? By asking yourself:

  • What is important to me?
  • What do I like to do in my free time?
  • What activities make me lose track of time?
  • What are the most interesting jobs and careers I can think of?
  • If I could do anything and money was no object, what would I do?
  • What skills and activities come naturally to me?

The Career Development Center offers several assessment surveys to help you gain greater self-awareness. The Career Interest Areas, Interest Profiler, SKILLS, and Work Importance Locator are available online for free through WOIS/The Career Information System (site key required), while the Campbell Interest & Skills Survey and Myers-Briggs Type Indication (MBTI) are fee based.

To expand your knowledge of and begin utilizing these self-exploration tools and resources,  call the Career Development Center at 360-867-6193 to schedule an appointment with one of our Career Advisors.
