a. Personality Assessments: Many companies now require a Briggs Meyers type personality assessment. These assessments are subjective. Your responses to questions may be affected by recent experiences or your mood. Additionally, your personality profile changes as you mature.
Take one of the free online assessments listed below and then discuss your results. Then give your opinion about how accurate the test is and to what extent you believe it is appropriate for employers to use personality profiles in the interview process.

b. Selecting the Right Job: Assume you spent the last four months of your college senior year looking for the perfect job. You interviewed with dozens of companies, but given the competitive job market, you haven’t received any offers. Today, suddenly, you receive two very good offers from two very good companies. The salary and compensation packages are nearly identical, and the opportunities for advancement are similar. Both jobs are in the same town you currently live in. How would you decide which job to take? Make a list of at least five criteria you would use to help you make a decision, rank them in order of importance, and explain your rationale.
c. Job Interviews: Search “job interview” on YouTube, and find one or more videos of mock job interviews. Assess whether you believe the interviewee looks professional, based on the criteria in Chapter 12. Also, rate the interviewees responses to 2 or 3 key questions on a scale of 1-10 (with 10 the best), and explain your ratings.
Alternatively, you might watch one or more videos with tips about how to have successful job interviews and summarize what you learn from them. Include the links to videos you watched.
