Career Assessment Tools
If you are not ready to commit to the Navigating Your Journey full-service option, we have some other ways to help you get started:
Knowing your interests is a great way to narrow your job search or help you identify what training you may want to pursue to qualify for the job you want.
Career Coach is an online survey tool that can help you identify your interests and how they align with job opportunities. Take either a quick six-question survey or a more detailed 60-question survey.
Career One Stop offers a three-pronged assessment to help you identify careers that align with your natural skills, interests, and work values.
Kirkwood Career Services
Kirkwood students can meet with a counselor after completing the self-exploration process and assessments available on the Kirkwood Career Services website. They will help to interpret the results of your assessments and ask you the important questions to help narrow down the list of occupations and careers.
Get help with the costs of education and/or job training
