Career Assessment “Tests?

There really is no such thing as a career test with right or wrong answers, or that indicates the best career. However, The Career Center does offer a variety of self-assessment instruments to help you build your list of career possibilities and assist you in making informed career decisions. Visit our web page to learn more about the career assessment tools that we offer.

CV Critique Days

Your CV is usually the first chance a search committee has to assess your candidacy for an academic job, so you’ll want your document to be as strong as possible. Our CV Critique Days offer individual feedback on your document. Contact our Information Desk at 734-764-7460 to schedule your half hour appointment:

Monday, July 14, 12:00 p.m.–2:00 p.m.
