Thank you to all students who attended our β€œCareers that Fit You and Your Personality Type” event in Lubert Commons! Today we discussed the Myers–Briggs Type Indicator, and how you can use your personality type to explore careers that might be a good fit. It was inspiring to see so many students eager to explore and understand their individual personality types while fostering a sense of self-awareness. Our goal was to create a space for personal growth and reflection. The diversity of personalities and perspectives that fellow students brought to the discussions made the event rich and rewarding for everyone involved. We hope to see you all at future CPD events!
