Career and major exploration takes on many different forms, and there is no “right” or “wrong” way to go through the process. At the NDSU Career and Advising Center, we want all students to know that no matter where they are in their exploration, we have services and staff available to assist them. Interest Inventories and Personality Type Indicators may be able to help students determine their next step. These inventories and indicators serve a multitude of functions, but they are not designed to tell anyone what is the “best fit” job or career that will lead to lifetime satisfaction and fulfillment. Rather, these tools can provide some insight and direction about how a personality type or areas of interest might relate to majors, career field, industries, and other work environment factors.
- Information about how their personal interests can relate to majors or academic areas
- Details about the work environments they may find most fulfilling
- Lists of professions of those who have interest and disinterests most similar to the student’s
- and much more!
