Perhaps you are a college student or high school student, or you’ve recently graduated, or are about to graduate, and want to get onto the first rung of your career.  Perhaps you want to choose a college or a college major.  Perhaps you’ve been downsized, fired, or quit.  Perhaps you’re looking for a better job, or a more satisfying career, or a job with better prospects – a career test can help!

Career tests help you figure out what work is most aligned with your interests and skills – And what you will be happiest doing.

 

 

Finding a good job is hard work.  It’s easy to be stuck, or unsure where to even begin.

 

That makes it important to know you’re focused on the right kind of jobs – jobs that match your expectations and your talents and skills. There is a wide variety of tools available to those who want a more objective sense of their abilities and aptitudes, interests and personality, and what these mean for their choice of careers.

Modern career tests are products of decades of empirical analysis and improvement, and when they’re taken and interpreted under the guidance of an experienced career advisor, they can prove highly effective for anyone seeking greater clarity about their choice of jobs and occupations.

We offer the most accurate and well-known career tests available (Strong Interest Inventory®, Myers-Briggs® Type Indicator MBTI®) and provide skilled interpretation to help you use the results to gain a better understanding of your career-related interests, aptitudes, values, and personality.

A career test can help you come to a clearer sense of what it is you want from a job and a career, and help you determine what career paths this suggests.

Understanding your own strengths and ambitions, is an essential first step to a rewarding career – and self knowledge has benefits that go beyond work to enrich every aspect of your life.

Whatever your circumstances – we have a career test for you –

Revealing the assets you possess yet didn’t even know you had. Sharpening them, honing them, making them, and you, as well prepared for the new adventure, the new road, ahead of you as possible. There are no guarantees, not anymore. But there are opportunities. Let’s seize those opportunities, together!
