Career Testing, or Career Assessment, provides students with information intended to lead to greater self-understanding and to informed decisions about education and career goals. This information can be used to assist students in the process of selecting a major and/or career path.
The Counseling Center currently offers the Strong Interest Inventory and the Myers Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI) assessments for a small fee. A free online assessment is also available to enrolled students. Students interested in career testing should complete the online request form available at www.mcneese.edu/counseling/services or call (337) 475-5136. Once the self-assessment is completed, a student schedules a follow-up career counseling appointment to discuss results and understand how to effectivly use them in the process of choosing a major and/or career.
