Assess the situation.
If you are finding it difficult to connect your abilities and your interests with a major, then a self-assessment may be of great use to you. Assessments can help you clarify your interests, personality, skills and values, and how those relate to majors and career goals.
MyPlan.com is a virtual one-stop shop of personal assessment. The website offers four different assessments (including personality, interests, skills, and values) and information about salaries, educational requirements, and more for hundreds of different careers.
MyPlan.com requires a code to create an account. To learn more about the MyPlan.com assessments and how to sign up, either visit an advisor in the University Advising Center in Ransom Hall or attend a Major Exploration Seminar in Ransom Hall. To see upcoming dates check our Events page or contact the University Advising Center to set up a major exploration appointment with an advisor. You may also set up an appointment by phone at 817-272-3140.
Additionally, Counseling Services, on the third floor of Ransom Hall, provides career exploration workshops throughout the semester. Counselors can also administer other self-assessments like the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator or the Strong Interest Inventory and help you interpret how your results can guide your major and career choices. To register, visit their Career Inventories registration page.
