The UGA Career Center has a number of assessments that can aid you in choosing your major and your potential career path. Career assessments are a great way to learn more about your skills, interests, values, and personality- information that is essential for making informed choices about your career.
Why are career assessments vital to your major and career exploration process? This information is useful for clarifying your thinking and guiding your exploration of options. Students who self-assess often report more satisfaction with their major and career choice.
Once you complete an assessment, we recommend you make an appointment with your Career Consultant to make the best use of the information, and for more information on interpreting your test results.
