The Center for Career & Professional Development offers self-assessment tools to help you articulate your personality, interests, skills, and values and identify related career possibilities.

The TypeFocus Careers assessment helps you articulate your strengths and characteristics more clearly and shows you what kinds of career fields people like you are often found in. It measures:

  • personality (where you get your energy, how you perceive your environment, how you make decisions and how one likes to organize your lifestyle);
  • interests (helping, persuading, thinking, creating, organizing or doing); and
  • values.

Call the Center for Career & Professional Development at (512) 863-1346 to schedule an intake appointment to access TypeFocus. After the initial appointment, you will receive access to the inventory and then schedule a follow-up appointment to verify and review your results with a career advisor. These tools are provided here for Southwestern students and alumni only.
