Assessments

Career assessments are designed to help you understand how your personal attributes impact potential success and satisfaction with different career options and work environments.  While no assessment can perfectly capture who you are or predict what occupation you’ll pursue, they can help you narrow choices and discover options you may not have considered.  Taking an assessment is a first step in the career exploration process.  The Pomerantz Career Center offers the following career assessments.
