Feeling lost? Not sure which career to pursue?
We can help you find direction in your career.
A career skills and personality test for career direction can help you identify your personality strengths and areas of interest if you aren’t clear about them. Studies show that people happiest with their jobs are those doing something they love and that comes naturally to them (natural gifts or strengths).
A career assessment and personality test is a great tool for gaining insight about yourself. You may see patterns emerging or find some clues to follow. You may also discover both personal and career insights and possibilities you had never before imagined.
But remember, these personality tests are just part of the total self assessment process. It’s unlikely that you’ll suddenly discover your ideal career from taking a career test although it can be a great start in narrowing things down. The assessment process is enhanced by working with one of our trained career counselors, bringing out additional information from the data and working with you to create a journey that is specifically tailored to you.
A Career Assessment & Personality Test Can Assist You in Discovering:
- Career fields of interest to you
- Your personality strengths and preferences
- Your motivated skills
- Your work and life values (job security, time for family life, appreciation of contributions)
- Your goals (the vision and purpose of your career and personal life)
- Your non-negotiable needs
- Your college major
Assessments selected are based on years of research and some of the most widely used in career planning. Results will be interpreted in a way that is meaningful to you in pursuing your career goals.
Our Approach to Career and Personality Assessments
Our approach to using career testing in the career counseling process is not a one-size fits all approach. Your career path is unique, just as your life experience, skills, strengths and personality is unique. When you work with one of our career counselors, we will help you find language to understand your strengths, skills and personality. We will also help you pinpoint careers that might be a good fit for you. However, we do this through a combination of the career assessment data and our interview with you.
Our career counselors have years of experience and understand the nuances evident in your experience as well as the career testing information. We know how to put this together in a way that is meaningful and specific for you. Each career assessment report may provide you with you a list of potential career options that on their own may or may not be relevant for you. However, through a customized, guided exploration with an experienced career counselor, we can help point you in the direction of careers that might be a better fit for you. We go beyond identifying careers to help you really understand which factors provide meaning and satisfaction in your career and to identify ways to obtain them. Your career assessment results can be useful for career choice, career change and career management and progression.
