Using Your Personality Strengths to Choose Majors and Careers for First-Years—a Strengths Assessment Workshop presented by Career Services, Sheri Mahaney

You don’t have to be a super hero to have super powers. Everyone has strengths. In fact, knowing your natural talents, along with the skills, abilities, and personal accomplishments you developed in high school will bring you one step closer to choosing a major and a career. This workshop is based on the extensively researched StrengthsQuest model and after taking the StrengthsFinder assessment you will be taught how to:
-Understand your own unique combination of talents
-Articulate what you uniquely have to offer in classes, internships, and job roles
-Select courses, majors and career paths that are right for you

Come discover how working with your strengths will help you to be successful at Cornell and beyond!
This event is limited to 30 students from any college or major. RSVP required via Handshake starting 2/27/17 to receive access to the assessment. Search for “Using Your Personality Strengths to Choose Majors and Careers for First-Years.
