Assessments for Career Exploration
In addition to career advising meetings, CDO offers assessment tools that can help Bard students learn more about their interests, values, and personalities to make informed decisions about academic and career choices. CDO advisers work closely with students to inform them about the available assessments, how they can assist in their self discovery, and to interpret assessment outcomes while building an action plan for next steps.
