Find job and salary information so you can be prepared when you find a job.

If you are undecided about what major or career you want to pursue, you are not alone. More than half of American first-year university students come to school uncertain about their choice of major. Below you will find some of the resources Career Services can offer you to guide you in your search.

Click the link to take the assessment online (login: letu; password: career105; you will get a user id when you log in). Afterwards, we will send you an email with your results and information on meeting with us to go over them in detail. To see the kind of information provided by the MBTI you can view a page from a sample report.
