Careers

Assessments

Collegiate Gateway has received the coveted Certified Master Practitioner credential, reflecting an outstanding degree of expertise and knowledge about the MBTI and Strong assessments.

We begin by consulting with the client, to become familiar with your academic and personal background, as well as educational and career goals. This, in turn, allows us to evaluate which MBTI and Strong assessment and interpretation tools would be most appropriate, based on your age, stage in life, and objectives. The MBTI Step II assessment is ideal for individuals in their twenties and older, because it explores additional facets of personality that truly individualize each personality type.
