Career Assistance:
Identifying your skills, interests, and work values will help you to find a more satisfying and rewarding career. You will also find this information helpful when you are in the process of choosing a major. The Gerri Ripp Center for Career Development offers both online and paper-based assessment services to help you identify your strengths and interests. It is important to meet with a Career Advisor to select the appropriate assessment tool. A Career Advisor can also help you understand the results of the assessment tool and explore career options.
