Major Discovery Series
One resource kit for every KU major covering sample career titles and employers, necessary skill sets, professional associations, and websites specific to that major.
Career Assessment Instruments
If a student is unsure of a major or career path, or just wants to confirm decisions, please recommend one or more of the following:
- Focus - Assess skills, abilities, interests and values in relationship to a wide variety of career choices. Students can email this office (email@example.com) with their name, current student status, last four digits of their social security number, & email address to secure a keycode to access the program.
- Strong - Compare self-assessed abilities and interests with a variety of occupational groups.
- MBTI (Myers Briggs Type Indicator) - Assess psychological type as an explanation to personality. The MBTI is used in self-understanding and development; career exploration, counseling, and leadership development.
In addition, the following links may be useful when you need to develop letters of recommendation for your students:
