Career Assessment

Career development exams are offered to assist students who want to explore career alternatives. The Lamar State College-Orange Testing Center offers the newest in valid and reliable career assessment instruments. Two such instruments are the Myers-Briggs Personality Type Indicator (MBTI) Career Report and the Strong Interest Inventory (SII). The tests are administered on computer, and a student profile is available at the conclusion of the session. Students may see a counselor at the Advising and Counseling Center for an explanation of the results.
