The Myers-Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI) is a widely used inventory used to explore personality types and how they relate to the workplace.

Strengths Quest is a web-based career exploration tool designed to assist users in discovering and developing their strengths, and how they fit into academics, career and beyond.

Resume Instruction & Critique

Career Services is available to assist students with the creation and refinement of their resume and cover letters. Our experienced staff will provide feedback and recommendations on resume format, content, organization and etiquette, as well as proofreading for grammatical and spelling errors.

Interview Preparation

Students interested in improving their interviewing skills may participate in a mock interview through Career Services.
