Career workshops­— The College of DuPage Counseling faculty will offer a variety of career inventory workshops this fall on the main campus in Glen Ellyn.
The Strong Interest Inventory workshop provides attendees with a deeper understanding of themselves and how their interests can influence career direction. This widely recognized inventory measures likes and dislikes and compares the interests of people employed in various occupations, and can help identify general areas of career interest to explore.
Strong Interest Inventory workshops will be held from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m., on Tuesday, Oct. 9, and from 1 to 4 p.m. on Thursday, Nov. 15, in the Student Resource Center, Room 1126, and from 9 a.m. to noon on Wednesday, Dec. 5, in SRC 1133.
The Counseling Services department is also offering combination workshops that cover both the Strong Interest Inventory and MBTI in one report during one meeting. These workshops will take place from 5 to 9:30 p.m., on Wednesday, Oct. 17, in SRC 3679; Tuesday, Nov. 13, in SRC 1133; and Thursday, Dec. 6, in SRC 1133.
