Unsure Of What You Want To Do? Feeling Stuck? Try Taking A Career Assessment

You might want to consider taking a career assessment if you want help evaluating/weighing options you've been considering.

Assessements are meant to assist you when deciding on what you want to do ⏤ rather than directing or informing you of what you should do.

They take and compare your answers with others. And they can be helpful in shedding light on particular areas that you may have never thought about before.

 

Consider taking Clifton Strengths if you're wondering:

  • What your natural talents are and how they can relate to career options
  • How you can leverage your talents in different responsibilities

It takes 45 minutes and costs $10

 

Consider taking Myer Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI) if you're wondering:

  • What your personality type says about tasks that you may enjoy and/or environments that you might like to work in
  • How your personality type impacts group dynamics

It takes 45-60 minutes and costs $20

 

Consider taking Strong Interest Inventory (SII) if you're wondering:

  • How your interests relate to your possible career options
  • What potential skills and interests you should explore

It takes 45-60 minutes and costs $20
