Assessments:

     Need help identifying your interests, abilities, and/or values?  The following is a list available through career services and online: 

·         Self-Directed Search:
This simple to use, comprehensive “paper and pencil” assessment developed by Dr. John Holland is based on the premise that there are 6 types of personalities and most people are a combination of three.  It generates career suggestions based on personality combination. 

·         Focus Test:
This online tool expands on the Self-Directed Search and provides assessments in five areas (work interest, personality, skills, values, and leisure interest).  Each assessment generates its own career suggestions.  When completed you can combine two assessments (i.e. work interest + skills) for an additional list of career suggestions.  From there you can research majors at Ohio University which would be beneficial for these careers.
