Career Services: Assessment Tools

  • Alumni sitting on a couch
  • Find the right career options for you

    The key to occupational success comes from the combination of interests, skills and abilities, personal style and values that you bring to your work. Determining where you ‘fit in’ is what vocational assessment is all about. By using information gained from using assessment instruments, we can work together to determine which career options are most likely to offer personal, financial and career success.

    Alumni Career Services Liaison, Trisha Grace, will work with you to determine which career options are the best for you based on the career advising assessment tools.

    Personality Dimensions®

    The latest evolution in presenting Personality Temperament Theory. It builds on research conducted in Canada over a 10 year period, and the foundations established by the work of Carl Jung, David Keirsey, Linda Berens, as well as a history of Temperament that spans 25 centuries.

    • The Personality Dimensions® system utilizes a convenient card sort and short questionnaire to reveal your temperament preference.
    • In addition to being the first Temperament assessment to incorporate the Introversion/Extraversion dichotomy, Personality Dimensions also uses four colours along with short descriptors and symbols to represent the Temperament preferences: Inquiring Green, Organized Gold, Authentic Blue, Resourceful Orange.
    • These combined aspects create a common language of understanding of yourself and others.
    • A tool that helps individuals choose the best career path according to personality type.
    • Also helps individuals who are struggling with working effectively with different personality types.
