Whether students enter Creighton University with a declared major or are "still deciding," many will change majors at least once before they earn a degree.  With so many possibilities available and a lifetime of work ahead, the John P. Fahey Career Center encourages all students to invest time in self-reflection.

The following career assessments focus on a variety of different areas, such as personality, skills, interests, values, occupational options, career paths, and educational programs compatible with your personal attributes.   

Remember that an assessment provides only one piece in the overall career development puzzle. The results will not give you the "right" answer to what you should be when you grow up. Assessments aid students in solidifying current interests, exploring new options, and/or acquiring self-awareness.

Career Counseling
To help interpret your assessment results and discuss your career options, we recommend you meet with a Career Counselor in the Career Center. Together, you can decide on a plan of action.  Contact us to make an appointment.
