Some people know exactly what kind of career they want to go for, some have vague ideas about it and others don’t know at all what matches best with their interests, values and skills.
Our Career Kick-off Questionnaire can help you to start thinking about yourself, get prepared for the assessments and is a great resource for the first meeting with your Career Coach.
CareerLeader is a business career, self-assessment tool built on interests, motivators, and skills that drive future career success and satisfaction. The assessment is designed specifically for MBA students and business career professionals. Based on your responses, a unique profile and report is generated, providing you with feedback on:
- your interest level for each of the 8 core elements of work in organizations
- your key motivating factors
- your strongest skills
- the attributes of organizational culture in which you are likely to be most comfortable and successful
To complete your assessment visit the CareerLeader website and follow the login instructions:
- Go to the NEW USERS section
- Enter the email address you used to apply to and communicate with BU (Usually this is your personal email and NOT your new BU email address; except for former BU undergrad or MBA/MD students who applied with their BU email address)
- Enter the registration key as follows: bumgmt-rake
- Take the test for each of the three inventories (Interests, Motivators, Skills)
Should you have any issues, please contact Susanne Schneider-Kivelitz.
Completing the 3-part assessment takes a bit less than an hour.
In addition to having the opportunity to review your report with your Career Coach, the class “Career Exploration with CareerLeader” is part of your Career Development Curriculum. To be able to benefit from that class, you must have completed the CareerLeader assessment and bring your CareerLeader report with you to class.
The purpose of the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator® (MBTI®) personality inventory is to make the theory of differing psychological preferences and types described by C. G. Jung understandable and useful in people’s lives. The MBTI was designed by Katharine Cook Briggs and her daughter Isabel Briggs Myers for normal populations and emphasizes the value of naturally occurring differences. The underlying assumption of the MBTI is that we all have specific preferences in the ways how we perceive the world around us and make decisions, and these preferences underlie our interests, needs, values, and motivation.
You will have the opportunity to explore your preferences with a self-scorable form handed out during LAUNCH in August. In the Career Development class “MBTI and your Career”, you can learn more about how your preferences make an impact on your career choices and the way how you manage your career development process.
