Assess

​The first step on the path to identifying and pursuing the calling that God has for you is determining exactly who you are. Our staff wants to help you answer important questions, like “what do I enjoy?” and “in what work environments do I excel?’ or perhaps, “what has God enabled me to do well?” As you begin to answer these and other important questions, a clearer picture of precisely who God has made you to be begins to emerge. And this places you in a much better position to evaluate what career paths you should explore. Some students avoid this critical step and rush into career exploration, only to encounter confusion and discouragement in the process because they haven’t first determined who they are. The first step of self-assessment is critical in the career development process.
 

Assess Resources

 
Action Steps:

· Participate in self-assessment testing. Assessments of your personality, skills, interests and values are available through MyPlan, a comprehensive career resource, and offered to students free of charge. The Office also offers a number of other assessments including the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI) and the Strong Interest Inventory (both available on JobGrove).

· Meet with a counselor to discuss your assessment results, as well as major and career options based on your interests, skills,  abilities, and values.

· Review our Freshman Status Sheet to provide you practical steps at this point in your career development.
