Career Counselling and Assessment

University students face many difficult decisions related to choosing majors and setting career goals. The Counselling Centre offers a number of programs and career counselling services that help students learn more about themselves, their interests, personality, skills and helps students explore their options.

Career Planning Group

Purpose: The purpose of the Career Planning Group is to assist students in making education and career choices that are compatible with their interests, values, and abilities.

Activities: Exploration of students’ academic/vocational interests, values, and abilities; increased familiarity with the resources found in the Career Development and Experiential Learning Centre; and completion of the Strong Interest Inventory (a tool that aids in academic and career choices).

Process: The Career Planning group includes two possible sessions.
In the first session, students complete a self-assessment and receive a tour of the Career Development and Experiential Learning Centre.
The second session is for students who wish to complete the Strong Interest Inventory. These students make an appointment through the University Counselling Centre to complete the Strong and attend a second session designed to assist them in the interpretation of their results.
Where: Career Development and Experiential Learning Centre
How to register: Call or visit the reception desk at Career Development or University Counselling Centre.

 


Assessments

The Strong Interest Inventory (SII) is a great starting point for career planning.

The SII surveys one's interest patterns and compares them to the interests of individuals in a variety of occupations. Materials used with the SII help students learn which majors at MUN fit their interests.

The inventory can be completed in approximately 30 minutes and requires a group interpretation session.
