WVSU | West Virginia State University

WVSU students may seek assistance with selecting a career field/program of study.  Assistance is provided in self-evaluation, exploration of occupational areas and development of personal and professional goals.  Many career assessments such as the Self-Directed Search, Myers-Briggs Type Indicator, and the Career Occupational Preference System (COPS) are used in the self-evaluation process.  Also, a computerized assessment (SIGI3) is available for use by appointment. West Virginia State University students may click on the Sigi3 logo below to begin your assessment today. All services are confidential.  Call (304) 766-3250 to schedule an appointment.


If you are unsure about your career path or have a career in mind, but don't know where to start, check out Sigi3. This is a fast easy-to-use software that helps you make important decisions about your future.
