Students can receive help in assessing their career interests, abilities, values, skills, personality type, and other factors important in making career choices. Popular career assessments include the Myers-Briggs Personality Inventory, the Strong Interest Inventory and Career Coach. Students can research a wide variety of occupations and fields of interest using resources such as web databases, on-line videos, occupational information software, and books available to check out. Through career counseling students are able to make decisions about their career and educational goals and develop action plans for achieving those goals.
