Self Assessment

Good academic and career decisions are based on a clear understanding of personal interests, skills, values, personality characteristics and lifestyle preferences. Western's Career Services Center offers three career assessments to help individuals gain greater self-awareness:

Strong Interest Inventory

Used by more than 70% of US colleges and universities, the Strong Interest Inventory is one of the world's most widely used and respected career planning tools. The Strong provides insight into interests, preferences and personal styles. The Strong helps individuals identify areas of study, activities, internships and jobs they're likely to enjoy. This assessment is fee based.

Myers Briggs Type Indicator

The Myers Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI) is the most widely used personality inventories in the world. The MBTI provides insight into an individual's preferred manner of taking in and evaluating information and their preferred styles of working, decision-making and communicating. This assessment is fee based.


We are in the process of transitioning from the FOCUS assessment resource to a new service called SIGI3, which will be available by mid-November.
