StrengthsQuest gives students and educators the opportunity to develop strengths by building on their greatest talents.
University Career Services announces a series of events to help students, faculty and staff identify and utilize their strengths in the classroom and workplace.
StrengthsQuest month begins Feb. 10 and features a series of seminars, discussions and other activities to help participants learn more about their individual strengths and how to apply those strengths in their careers and education.
StrengthsQuest is an assessment tool developed by the Gallup Organization to help identify a person’s top natural talents.
The month-long program activities will include:
Additionally, University Career Services will host small group discussions from 3-4 p.m. in the Student Union Building Conference Room every Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday beginning Feb. 10.
Each day will focus on two to three of the 34 strengths and how participants can use their strengths to achieve personal, professional and classroom success.
University Career Services also is holding a video and photo contest. Red Raiders are invited to submit photos or videos of themselves using their strengths by March 1 for a chance to be featured on Texas Tech’s StrengthsQuest Web site. The winner will receive an iPod Touch courtesy of the Gallup Organization.
Entrants can e-mail submissions along with the names and e-mail addresses of everyone in the video or photo to Amanda Schaefer. For more information on the contest or StrengthsQuest month call (806) 742-2210 or visit www.careerservices.ttu.edu.
The University Career Center promotes each student's success by providing career development, career exploration, and job search opportunities to undergraduate, graduate, international, distance students and alumni.
