Gathering information about yourself and exploring your top interests are key steps in choosing a major and career path. Taking an assessment can allow you to explore how your preferences, interests, skills or values align with different career options. This service is free for current Pepperdine students. Schedule an appointment with an industry specialist to determine which assessment(s) might be a good fit for you.
Strong Interest Inventory®
The Strong Interest Inventory measures your interests in a wide range of occupations, work and leisure activities, and educational subjects. Your interests are compared to individuals who report being happy and successful in their jobs. If your interests are similar to their interests, you may like doing what they do. It is an excellent place to start a conversation about career choice.
Myers-Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI®)
The MBTI assesses personal preferences in four different areas. The combination of these preferences can affect how comfortable you may feel in a given career field. Although all of the 16 personality preferences can be found across a wide range of careers, people are often drawn to one field over another based on their preferences. The MBTI can assist with self-knowledge and can help in choosing a career path that is more congruent with who you are.
