Advising and Engaging Students with Informal Career Assessment
Tuesday, May 3, 2016 | 12:00 p.m. - 1:00 p.m. EST | FREE for EACE members; $59.00 for non-members
Career counseling is both an art and a science. While we all use classic assessments such as the Strong Interest Inventory or the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator in our daily practice, some of the most innovative – and helpful – assessments are created by individual practitioners. During this informative and interactive webinar, two of the most creative career leaders in our field will discuss and demonstrate easy-to-use, cost-free instruments to add to your own assessment toolkit.
