Answers to Some Frequently Asked Questions
What does career testing provide?
What types of tests are used?
There are four tests that are used during the career assessment: These are a career personality test, a career interest test, a career values test, and a career conflict test. Together these give a complete picture of how you fit into the world of work. These career tests are interpreted together so it makes a big picture for you, and your career results are tied directly to who you are as a person, so it makes perfect sense from your perspective. It is truly an investment in your future, as you will pick a career path that is perfectly suited to you as a unique individual.
When is career testing a good idea?
If you feel like you have more questions than answers about your career path, you will walk away with many answers to all your questions. The world of work has gotten more complex than ever before with changes in technology, demographics, and globalization, so people typically need to seek professional help to navigate the changing world of careers.
What are other benefits of career testing?
Most people tend to be more passive than active when pursuing a career; and this can lead to people making career choices that are not suitable. When people go down a career path that isn’t a good fit, they often become disillusioned, stressed, and dissatisfied, and this can eventually lead to burnout. Career testing helps you make active and accurate career choices, for all the right reasons. Typically when people are in the right career, they are happier, calmer, more satisfied with life, and more successful compared to those individuals that are in careers that does not suit them.
