Frequently Asked Questions
What are career assessments?
Career assessments ask you a variety of questions about your areas of interest, education, training, personality, life values, leisure preferences, and skills. Based on how you answer the questions, the assessment generates a list of possible career choices that might be a good match for you. NWC provides students two different career assessments tools Career Cruising and Kuder.
