Identifying your Strengths

MyPlan - MyPlan is a comprehensive resource for career-related information. The system is very user-friendly and visually appealing, and provides you with up-to-date information about careers, majors, and graduate schools, as well as career articles, resources, statistics, and videos. Students have access to FOUR free assessments that match them to various occupations, including personality and interest assessments which are similar to Myers-Briggs and the Strong Interest Inventory.

To access this resource: You will need to register on the website and create a free account. On the second page of registration, you will be asked to input the license code. Both the link and license code can be found on our myGCC 'Career Services' tab. After you complete registration, you will have access to the assessments.

Myers-Briggs Type Indicator - The Myers-Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI), an online inventory, is the most widely used personality assessment in the world. With a proven record of reliability spanning more than 50 years, it offers a foundation for understanding individual differences and applying that understanding to the ways people think, communicate, and interact.  The Myers-Briggs reports your preferences on 4 of 8 possible items and there are 16 personality types possible.  The MBTI tool helps you learn about occupational choices that would best match your personality and how your personality preferences fit into different work environments.

The MBTI assessment is available to take online through JobGrove at a nominal cost.  We recommend that you contact our office to schedule a follow-up appointment to interpret the results with a counselor.

MBTI Quiz - A short quiz is available on myGCC to help you determine your personality preferences.

Strong Interest Inventory - The Strong Interest Inventory (SII), an online inventory, is used to help you understand your work interests and to show you some kinds of work in which you might be comfortable.  There are 6 interest types possible indicated in the chart below.  Your report will include your top interests, as well as a list of occupations that seem to best match your interests. 

The Strong Interest Inventory assessment is available to take online through JobGrove at a nominal cost.  We recommend that you contact our office to schedule a follow-up appointment to interpret the results with a counselor.
