Ø Process of Choosing a Major Workshop
At this workshop you’ll learn how to choose a major and what techniques you can use to explore your options. Part of choosing a major encourages students to align their personality type with their interests. This workshop introduces two career assessment tools, Strong Interest Inventory (SII) and the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI) and other factors to guide you through the process of choosing a major. You will leave the workshop with an access code to take the SII and MBTI and a better understanding of how to move forward with selecting a major that is right for you. Be sure to sign up for the Strong’s Interest Inventory Workshop and the Myers-Briggs Workshop to connect your personality type to your interests.
