Small Group Workshops
During the year, the career coaching team hosts workshops that are typically composed of 5-15 students in an interactive setting. Our workshops use a hands-on, “learning by doing” approach by incorporating activities into the one and a half hour sessions. We help students to build on career development skillsets such as mastering interviewing, resume and cover letter writing, and project managing your internship search.
The career coaching team provides large group sessions that are designed to cover a wide variety of career-related topics such as developing your 30-second commercial elevator pitch and getting the most out of your summer internship experience.
Self-Evaluation & Assessment
The first step in any career development process is self-evaluation. By understanding your skills, interests and values, you can begin to brainstorm possible job targets that you may want to pursue. Questrom offers several tools that will aid self-assessment including our Career Kick-Off Questionnaire and the MBTI. We encourage you to discuss your self-evaluation with your assigned Career Coach during a coaching appointment.
Career Kick-Off Questionnaire
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
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.
Please contact your Career Coach to schedule an appointment for taking the manual Myers-Briggs Type Indicator® (MBTI®) assessment and to learn more about how your preferences make an impact on your career choices.
