Career Assessments

These tests measure your personal characteristics and recommend a list of careers that match you.  We offer the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator and Strong Interest Inventory for a cost of $40 per assessment. Free assessments are also available.  If you want to take a career assessment, please email or call 505.925.8840.  Voicemail is checked daily and all calls are returned within 24 hours.

Career Exploration

Information about possible careers is widely available on the internet; however, it is important to get the information from a reliable source like the ones listed below:

O*Net - A database maintained by the US Department of Labor on thousands of career classifications.

Occupational Outlook Handbook - A database maintained by the US Bureau of Labor Statistics on thousands of career classifications

Job Search

There are many ways to find a job, but the online job search is now the most common - if not the most effective.  The best way to find a job is through your network; the people who know you and would happily recommend you to someone they know.  We can help you be better at networking.  Check out other job search resources here.
