Career Testing

Career Testing

Some people find career tests to be a good starting point for career and vocational exploration. While there is no such thing as a career test that will tell you what to do with your life, the data may help you consider some options that you might not have otherwise considered. Some of these instruments are available through Divinity Career Services. Interested parties may contact Susan Olson (203-432-9485 or susan.olson@yale.edu ) directly to make arrangements for these assessments. Assessments are delivered online, and individuals make appointments for one on one test results and interpretation. It is not possible to receive the test results without an individual appointment for review. Persons outside the New Haven area may schedule appointments via the telephone. Persons in New Haven should schedule in person appointments.

Current students and alumni/ae within the first 6 months after graduation may take the tests for free. Other alumni/ae will be charged the actual cost of the instrument ($20 for the Strong and $10 for the Meyers Briggs, Form M) but will receive the interpretive sessions for free. We are not able to provide testing for those that are not alumni/ae or current students.

Available Tests Include:

  • Meyers Briggs Type Indicator, Form M
  • Meyers Briggs Type Indicator Step II (where indicated)
  • Strong Interest Inventory
  • Strong Interest Inventory with Skills Confidence

Authorization:

Susan Olson is certified for the Meyers Briggs Type Indicator through the Center for the Application of Psychological Type (2004) and for the Strong Interest Inventory through Qualifying.Org (2004). Long Distance Counseling credentials are held through ReadyMinds (2005).
