Services/Presentations Guidelines

According to our research, Auburn University faculty members are the main source of referral for students to Career Center. We appreciate your involvement in our services and programs and realize that many students are introduced to the Career Center because of a class assignment or a faculty member's suggestion. In order to best accommodate any class assignments or extra credit opportunities that involves the Career Center, please communicate with our office in advance by contacting Addye Buckley-Burnell at 844-3857 or addyebb@auburn.edu prior to the start of the semester.

Additional information about how we can best work together is listed below:

ASSESSMENTS

If you wish to require your students to utilize a Career Center assessment for course or extra credit, please note the information below. Class assessment interpretations should be scheduled during your class (Class/Group Presentation Request Form) or students should sign-up for a Career Center scheduled group session (times available on website).

Type Focus (Personality Assessment) - FREE
  • Helps students identify areas of natural strengths and challenges as well as career areas where their personality type is typically drawn.
  • Students should print Type Focus results (displaying their four-letter type) and bring to group interpretations (classroom or in-office).
  • Call 844-4744 to request the site password.
  • The Myers-Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI) is available, but we do not recommend it for class assignments as it costs $30.

Focus - FREE
  • A comprehensive assessment tool which allow students to evaluate several areas (interests, values, abilities, etc.) and guide them through researching career areas of interest as well.
Strong Interest Inventory (SII) - $30
  • Evaluates students’ interests as they relate to careers.
  • Contact Diane Thorne (thornde@auburn.edu) at the first of the semester, and she will create“batch” results and generate directions to be distributed to students to simplify the process of developing a class interpretation and/or see which students have completed the assignment.

Interpretations are available during scheduled groups and appointments but not as a walk-in service. Students may call 844.4744 to schedule an appointment, Mon - Fri, 8 a.m. and 4 p.m. or schedule a group on the website when they complete the Strong Interest Inventory. For class assignments, appointments should be scheduled at least two weeks prior to the last day of class.
