Career Assessments

Self-Assessments Can Help:

  • Clarify who you are and what you want in a career
  • Connect your interests, values, and skills to possible majors and careers

We Recommend:

  • Trying a variety of self-assessments. Each is unique, just as we are. You may find one more helpful than another.
  • Never making a decision based solely on your results. The careers you are matched to are only suggestions. Be sure to research those suggestions.
  • Speaking with a Career Advisor during Walk-In Hours to fully understand your results and identify next steps in determining your major and career.

Recommended Self-Assessments:

  • Career Cruising (Free for UWM students/alumni – Username/password from the Career Planning & Resource Center is required. Call, email, or drop in to request one.)
