Self-Assessment

Career development studies show a direct correlation between how well you know yourself and how successful and happy you are in your life and work. The CDC can help students to discover valuable information about themselves and the world of work, which can then be later applied to career-decision making. Unsure about your career direction or academic major?  Make an appointment with a CDC counselor to conduct a self-assessment evaluation.
