Psychometric tests for career guidance

etudiante
Are you having trouble defining your professional interests and motivations? When you are trying to decide on a career path, self-assessment can help you make the right choices. The MBTI and STRONG psychological indicators both offer insight into your personality and interests. But which is most likely to set you on the right track?

MBTI (Myers Briggs Type Indicator)

Do you want to know more about your main characteristics: personality type, behavioural tendencies in professional settings, communication style, reaction to stress, relationships with others and areas for improvement? Would you like to boost your self-confidence by understanding your character traits better?

The MBTI can help you do so through two-hour workshops in small groups.

It is not specifically a career guidance tool but it is a good way to get to know yourself and how you relate to others. Undergraduates, Master’s students and recent graduates can all benefit from the MBTI.

How to register: Sign up for an upcoming workshop in your Student space.

STRONG

The Strong Interest Inventory focuses mainly on professional interests and motivations and complements the MBTI.

It helps identify the professional fields, sectors and environments that best correspond to you and compares your results to those of people who answered the questionnaire in a similar way and are satisfied with their jobs.

During an individual interview or a two-hour workshop in a small group, the inventory encourages you to reflect in depth on your career plan (choosing your Master’s when you are an undergraduate student, making career choices during your Master’s programme or as a recent graduate, identifying new career options, etc.).

How to register ?

Send an email to scpo.carrieres@sciencespo.fr explaining why you want to do the Strong inventory. A certified Strong consultant from Sciences Po Careers will get in touch with you to propose a small group workshop or individual appointment.
