Career Pathway Exploration
All new students entering Navarro College will be sent the YouScience career assessment.
YouScience will take you through a series of assessments and interest questions, designed to determine results in the 14-key aptitudes utilized in the working world. The results include a review of your personal strengths, suggested environments where you will succeed, detailed information on possible careers that match your skills and interests, majors that map to those careers, and much more.
You can meet with your College & Career Success Coach once you complete YouScience to review your results or assist you in choosing a program of study.
Many students are undecided about their college major or career choice. If you feel this way, you are not alone. Deciding on your academic and career pathway can be very stressful. For any questions or requests to complete YouScience, please call (903) 875-7397 or email the Academic Advising Staff.
Here’s what to expect when completing YouScience:
The assessment takes about 1 ½ hours to complete the Core Assessment.
Make sure you’re in a quiet, comfortable place where you won’t be distracted by television, music, pets, or your cell phone. Please tell anyone who may be around you that you need quiet and privacy.
For your results to be accurate, you’ll need to provide your honest effort – no calculators or cheats! Do the best you can.
Some exercises will come easy; others may be difficult or even frustrating. Knowing what’s hard is just as important as knowing what comes naturally.
To help you pace yourself we built in 10-minute breaks after some of the exercises. Take advantage of those breaks. You deserve them! It is even okay if you need to come back and finish the next day.
Please make sure you don’t press the back button or close your browser during an active exercise. If you need extra breaks, take them in between exercises.
Make sure you read the directions completely before beginning each exercise
