Compass to help students plan future
The Career Center recently launched the Compass Program, an all-visual personality test that matches students to careers and corresponding majors and clubs on campus.
Students are exposed to a series of pictures and have to answer “me” or “not me.”
The test should take no longer than five minutes from registration to completion.
According to Lorie Logan-Bennett, the Director of the Career Center, the Compass Program is a great starting point for students who aren’t sure what career path is best for them.
“According to surveys of users, 90 percent said that their personality description felt accurate and a majority of students reported that as a result of taking Compass, they felt they had gained a greater awareness of who they were as it relates to the world of work,” Logan-Bennett said.
In addition to helping students find their direction, the Career Center is also celebrating its achievements. Students can tweet #TUinfinity and share how any of their experiences with internships, community service, study abroad, leadership positions, research, work or on-campus organizations were better than they expected. Students can also post #TUinfinity on the Career Center’s Facebook page or email the Career Center at firstname.lastname@example.org. The Career Center is encouraging students to include photos or videos in their posts.
Students who participate in #TUinfinity can pick up a #TUinfinity t-shirt from the Career Center after showing the front desk attendant their post and will be entered into weekly gift card drawings.
