The Myers-Briggs Type Indicator® (MBTI®) assessment is the most widely used personality assessment in the world. Based on Carl Jung's theory of psychological types, the MBTI® is a self-reporting, computer-based questionnaire that measures an individual's interests and preferences. Students will receive a personalized, written report detailing their test results and providing further analysis. Together, the student and an SCC career counselor will use this information to explore vocational interests and career options that may complement the student's MBTI® type.

The most widely used career planning instrument in the world, the Strong Interest Inventory® is an in-depth assessment of an individual's interests among a broad range of occupations, work, leisure activities and educational subjects. This instrument is based on the idea that individuals are more satisfied and productive when they work in jobs or at tasks that they find interesting and when they work with people whose interests are similar to their own. Students will receive a personalized, written report that provides analysis of the results and identifies optimum career choices based on assessed interests. Together, the student and an SCC career counselor will use this information to further explore vocational interests and career options.

Completing these tests is only the beginning, of course. Your career counselor will help you to interpret the results, and then you'll review lists of careers that match. You'll be given various resources so you can research information about majors and careers, and after researching potential careers, we can help you shadow a professional.

Career counseling is free for current SCC students and alumni. This service is also available for non-SCC students for a fee of $75. Appointments with non-SCC students will be conducted during non-peak time periods.
