  • February 27, 2018 • 1 PM – 3 PM
  • CAPS- 3624 Market St., First Floor West, University of Pennsylvania

Worried about whether your future career goals are right for you? Confused about finding a career that fits your interests and talents? Want help using your personality type to help you navigate the career exploration and job search process? In this interactive workshop co-sponsored by CAPS and Career Services we assist you in your career discovery process through a guided exploration of your values, strengths, and interests. You will take the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI), which is an assessment that suggests career paths by helping students understand work and personality fit. Myers-Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI): provides a foundation for understanding individual differences and applying that understanding to the ways people think, communicate, and interact. This tool identifies your basic “personality type” which can be related to potential career choices and working environments. It is useful in helping people make career decisions, select an appropriate work environment, and communicate their skills effectively – and can help to customize your career planning approach.

The core career-readiness competency addressed in this workshop is: Self-Management & Personal Wellness (SMPW). For more information on the Penn7 career competencies, please see:
