Career Advising Career Services for Alumni
Today’s technology makes it easy to gather information and the ESF Career Services Office can help you make sense of it all! Call the office or stop by 105 Bray to find a time open to talk with a Career Counselor. Be sure to bring your thoughts, questions, and any resource information with you to discuss how these factors all come together to personalize your career plan.
Inventories: Do you understand what makes you tick? Do you think you know what characteristics are necessary for the job you want? Do you know what "type" of person you are? There are a number of web based interest, skill, and personality inventories. You can search the web to find one or more to your liking. The most established and often used include: The Campbell Interest Inventory, Strong Interest Inventory, Self Directed Search, World of Work Inventory, and the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI). Below are a couple web sites that provide inventories (for a price).
Additional Resources: In addition to the Career Services Office, your former academic advisor, former faculty, or a professional in your field can help in the career planning process. Make sure you take advantage of their insight, contacts, and suggestions as you formulate a career plan.
