Where to after your postdoc?

Assess yourself – your skills, values, interests, and more

  • Formal assessments

    The Myers-Briggs Type Indicator® (MBTI®) assessment is the best known and most widely used personality tool available today. Developed more than 50 years ago, the MBTI assists users in understanding individual differences and uncovering new ways to work and interact with others.

    The Strong Interest Inventory® provides research-validated insights to help you in your search for a rich, fulfilling career. The Strong empowers users to discover their true interests so they can better identify, understand, and often expand their career options.

    If you are interested in taking the Strong Interest Inventory, please contact Career Services to set up an individual appointment with a career counselor. If you are interested in taking the MBTI, please attend an upcoming MBTI program.
