Information About Career Assessments

The University Career Center offers 5 assessments to assist students in understanding their strengths, interests, and personality further. Our hope is that that by taking these career assessments students learn new information about themselves that they otherwise might not have known and use it to their advantage during their career journey.

All of these assessments can be taken online and are free for TTU students & alumni. To learn more about how students can take these assessments, you can contact the University Career Center at careercenter@ttu.edu or (806) 742-2210.
