Strengths for Students

We have created this website to help students find ways to use their unique talents to accomplish their educational, career and personal goals, and achieve success in life. StrengthsQuest helps you discover your distinctive talents and provides you with resources to develop and maximize them.

  • If you want to take StrengthsQuest, visit the MU Career Center and ask for a code. The cost is $15 and includes a personalized follow-up conversation with a career specialist afterwards.
  • If you have already taken the assessment, this website will help you learn how to develop your talents into strengths, and apply them to many different situations.

Here you will find a variety of activities, resources, and links to some of what we have found to be “the best of the best” on StrengthsQuest!

If you’d like more information about StrengthsQuest or have an activity, idea, or success story of your own to share, please let us know by emailing us at careeroutreach@missouri.edu.

Over 4,000 faculty, staff, and students take StrengthsQuest every year,

and it has been incorporated into academic curriculum, advising practices, athletics training, and multiple student affairs divisions. We hope this site is helpful for everyone at Mizzou who wants to learn more!
