Student and Alumni Resources

While the following career resources are utilized by many Penn State students and alumni, they are not directly affiliated with Penn State and the University cannot control their security. It is recommended that users NOT create accounts for these resources using the same credentials (username and password) that they use for their Penn State access accounts.


MyPlan is a four part career assessment that looks at your personality, interests, skills, and values. It is a great tool for both traditional students interested in career/major options and professionals considering a career change. MyPlan will provide a list of occupations that are a match with your results. It is recommended that you schedule an appointment with a staff member in Career Services to discuss your results. Contact Career Services to receive the access code.
