Career Assessment Services
Kansas State University Counseling Services is happy to offer career testing using the Strong Interest Inventory/Skills Confidence Inventory and the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator, two of the most widely utilized and studied career-related assessments available.
Taking a career assessment is easy. All you have to do is come to Counseling Services (2nd floor English/Counseling Service Building next to Hale library) and sign-up. Test interpretations will be conducted individually or in groups. Interpretation session format will depend on center demands. The groups are small and usually meet for 90 minutes. A Counseling Services’ staff person will talk with you about your results and how these results can be used in career and educational decision-making.Strong Interest Inventory/Skills Confidence Inventory (SII/SCI)
If you only take one career assessment the SII/SCI is a great choice if you are uncertain of your likes, dislikes, or interests. The SII/SCI provides information about both your career interests (a great predictor of career satisfaction) and areas of skills confidence. Putting interest themes together with areas of skills confidence will help you prioritize careers and majors for further exploration or development.
Myers-Briggs Type (MBTI)
The MBTI is one of the most popular assessments of personality type used today. The results of this assessment are helpful in guiding career and educational decisions, as well as to help understand and appreciate individual differences in personal and professional relationships.
How to Take the Assessments
Career assessments at Counseling Services are available to all K-State students.* To take either the SII/SCI or the MBTI come to Counseling Services, 2nd floor English/Counseling Services Building, and ask the receptionist to sign up. You will be charged a fee (see below) and be given a list of instructions along with a password for taking the assessment on-line.
Each assessment requires about 45 minutes to 1 hour to complete.
