As members of the Program, we perceive one of the goals of the Miller Business Honors Program to be to prepare students in such a way that they are some of the most desired candidates for job openings and highly successful in their transition to the workforce. We know that our fellow students are highly prepared in areas of professionalism and academics. However, we believe they are under-prepared in the area of self-awareness, which is becoming more important to today's employers. As of 2012, more than 10,000 companies, 2,500 colleges and universities, and 200 government agencies in the United States alone were using the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator (Cunningham). Therefore, we have worked to determine potential ways to bridge this gap in order to further integrate the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator into the Miller Business Honors Program to increase personal and professional development opportunities for its students.
