 Formalized testing is a powerful tool for career exploration and development. The program allows its users to learn about themselves, what types of careers match their interests and abilities and what educational path they’ll need to take to pursue those careers.

Specifically, students can:

  • Learn about themselves through Interests, Abilities and Values inventories

  • Explore occupations through the World Of Work map and the results of their inventories - this includes national information on careers--including job descriptions, job outlook, pay, training and education requirements

  • Select a career direction and education pathway and can mark favorite majors, schools and careers

  • Manage their own formalized testing portfolio by tracking their interests and favorites, and print a detailed summary of their career exploration

  • Formalized testing enables computerized graduate school searches with the ability to locate information on graduate schools by degree program or by specific school.

Formalized testing is available for use free of charge for enrolled NGU students and NGU alumni. To obtain a user ID to access the valuable information contained in the formalized testing program please schedule an appointment with a Career Counselor. Appointments can be made by calling Lisa Snyder, Career Services Director at 864-977-7669.
