Career Assessments

We offer two assessments to help you better understand your strengths, preferences and interests.

To take these assessments, please email assessments@hope.edu.

STRENGTHSQUEST/CLIFTON STRENGTHS FINDER

Taking the StrengthsQuest assessment (SQ) will offer insight into your top five personal strengths. Hope College uses SQ in many places throughout campus, from career services to residence life. Building an understanding of your top five strengths can assist in your overall academic achievement and your leadership development, and can impact your career choices.

PATHWAYU

PathwayU is an assessment that uses values, interests, personality and workplace preferences to determine career paths with which you have a strong match. It then points you toward majors at Hope College that will help prepare you for that type of work. Your results are immediate and it may be helpful for you to make an appointment with BCCC staff to help process and understand the information.

Each assessment is completed online, and you will be given access through the Boerigter Center. Most students will have taken the CliftonStrengths prior to their freshman year or through their FYS class. It is best if you make an appointment through Handshake to meet with a staff member to determine which assessment(s) would be a good fit for you. Email assessments@hope.edu with any questions.

If you have already taken one or more assessments we recommend making an appointment with a staff member to be coached about your results. This will help you make the most of the information as you apply it to major and career discernment, vocation and calling.
