Online Personality and Career Assessments

Online Personality and Career Assessments

Assessment exercises are helpful tools but are not predictors of career success. Be sure to meet with a Career Educator to discuss your career interests and the results of your assessments.


TypeFocus is an online career development program that will assess your personality, interests, and values so you can choose careers that match your natural strengths. Along the way, you will discover a lot more about yourself so you can answer the questions everyone who is searching for a good career must ask:

  • Who am I...really?
  • Where am I going?
  • How will I get there?

Created with your career needs in mind, TypeFocus offers a step-by-step program to meet them.
