Personal Wellness and Career Workshops

CAPS and Career Services are collaborating on a series of workshops that will help you to better understand your skills, values, and strengths as you begin the process of career exploration and development. Participating in any of these workshops will provide you with tools to develop career readiness competencies that will be valuable as you transition from the academic environment to your professional life, including:

* Building personal and professional development strategies and goals

* Managing stress and balancing work/life commitments

* Identifying and expressing your values, skills, and strengths

These (click here for poster) workshops cover a wide range of information on self-exploration and career development, including three tools that Career Services and CAPS offer to students:

Myers-Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI): provides a foundation for understanding individual differences and preferences, and applying that understanding to the ways people think, communicate, and interact. This tool identifies your basic "personality type" which can be related to future career choices & working environments

Strong Interest Inventory: reflects your interests in relation to occupations. Compares your interests to the interests of people happily employed in a wide variety of occupations and identifies job titles related to your interests. Understanding your Strong Profile can help you identify a career focus and begin your career planning and exploration process. This assessment is ideal for undergraduate and Master's students.

StrengthsQuest: identifies your strengths and relates them to your educational and career plans. Helps you gain insight into your areas of greatest potential. StrengthsQuest is not a career assessment and will not tell you what career you pursue, but can provide valuable information about who you are and the type of work environments in which you are most likely to thrive.
