Career and Personality Assessments

We have provided links below to different assessments that may help you on your way to finding the perfect career for you.

FOCUS-2 Career Planning System 
The FOCUS-2 Career Planning System allows you identify your interests, values, personality, skills and leisure activities. Although you may think you know your interests, personal and professional interests can be quite different. We recommend this tool if you are having a difficult time deciding which career you want to pursue.

Myers Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI)
The Myers Briggs Type Indicator is the most widely used personality assessment worldwide. The MBTI process involves:

  • Completing a 30-minute online questionnaire
  • Setting up an appointment with a certified MBTI instructor
  • Receiving a report about your personality and career choices from your MBTI instructor

If you wish to take this assessment or find out more, please contact onlinecareerservices@harrison.edu.
