Career counseling focuses on developing career goals and choosing a compatible academic major. Often, discussing one's options is sufficient. If more investigation is needed then there are 2 career inventories we can use to aid in the process.
The Strong Interest Inventory is an online inventory that asses interest patterns. The Strong generates a list of occupations compatible with your interest and pattern.
The Type Focus is an online inventory that matches occupations based on a personality assessment. The Type Focus generates a list of occupations as well as summaries of personality types.
Once these are completed a follow up session is made with the counselor to discuss the results and possible majors.
Call 936-468-2401 or come by the Counseling Services Counter to make an appointment.
SIGI-3 is a comprehensive computer assisted career search program for students. It is very thorough and usually requires two to three hours to process the options generated.
