You should know what skills, strengths and personality traits you bring to the workplace.
Assessments can help you figure out these things. They are fun tools that show what you’re good at, and how well you match different occupations.
No matter what your age or where you are in your career, you can benefit from taking a skills or interest assessment. Remember:
- Don’t panic if an assessment shows you careers that you don’t like.
- Talk with an adviser . Discuss your options with family and friends.
- The goal is to get you thinking about careers that you might enjoy.
- Take a few assessments before making your career decision.
When you’re done, you’ll have an interest profile that matches your interests to career clusters. If you already know your Career Interest Profile, jump ahead to Match your Interest Type to Jobs.
