The Career Check creates an action plan and offers advice on what to do during your studies. You can take the following tests:


You can also follow our workshop called Self-analysis for Career Orientation.

Are you unclear on what kind of job will suit you, what you are passionate about, or what is possible with your educational background? In this workshop, we will explore these questions to find out what is in your wheelhouse. By consciously and actively engaging with these themes, you will find out what it is you really want.

An experienced career coach will encourage you to look at different aspects of yourself and your life to extract information for your future. By mapping your interests, capabilities, motives and career values, you will determine what is (most) important to you. After that, you will be better able to consider the jobs, organizations and tasks that fit your preferences.

After this workshop, you will continue your job search with more self-knowledge and more self-confidence. 

Who is it for
3rd-year and 4th-year Bachelor and Master students, recent UU graduates and PhDs of all Graduate schools

Personality inventory (MBTI)

The Myers-Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI) is the most widely used questionnaire for talent development in the world. The instrument is based on the personality theories of Carl Jung, and describes differences between personalities in a positive way. There is no good or bad personality type, each type has strong qualities and possible pitfalls. The test makes an inventory of ‘preferences’. Each preference indicates what gives you energy and what you are comfortable with.

If you would like to do the official test (there are many variants available online that do not offer an official report and feedback) contact trainer/coach Rutger-Jan Scholtens (R.J.Scholtens@uu.nl). He is certified to perform the questionnaire and discuss the results with you one-on-one. Taking the test costs €60, including the report, other documents and the feedback meeting. This is at least twice as cheap as through a private coaching agency.
