A career inventory is a questionnaire that can help you discover new career possibilities which are compatible with your interests, aptitudes, and employment needs. Use any Internet accessible computer -- at home, the library, or the Career Center - to take the following career inventories:

  • Career or major finder: Career Cafe. Assess your interests and find careers and majors that match. Print a summary to take to your career counselor for further discussion.
  • Keirsey Termperament & Character Web Site: www.keirsey.com/
    Determine your temperament type and how it will affect your career satisfaction.
  • Riso-Hudson Enneagram Type Indicator and The New Enneagram Test:www.9types.com/
    Again, not specifically a career test, but suggests a basic personality orientation for each of us, which can be viewed in relation to career possibilities. You may explore careers which seem compatible with your basic "enneagram" type.

Remember: The best way to use your results to a career inventory is to follow-up by gathering information about occupations. Use any one of the "Occupational Exploration" links on this page to explore careers compatible with your results.
