Career Assessments Gives Insight

“It’s not hard to make decision when you know what your values are” ~ Roy Disney

How much work have you done to know more about your personal values, interests, skills and abilities.  I refer to this as your V.I.S.A. Knowing who you are and what you have to offer must be considered as you contemplate any career choices or decisions.

There are many career assessments to help you get started and costs range from free to very expensive.

Remember that no career assessment will tell you what you should be or what you should do. The results, however, can offer you a framework within which to start exploring options or help reinforce your current choice.  The results can tell you more about who you are and act as a filter as you evaluate options.

Career Assessments:

O*NET Interest Profiler – Find out your interests and how they relate to your work.  This Interest Profiler helps with decisions about what careers to pursue.

Myers Briggs Type Indicator – One of the most well-known assessments which results in a four-letter “type”—INFP or ESFJ, for example. The test helps to identify basic preferences for each of four dichotomies (such as introvert and extrovert) and describes 16 distinctive personality traits.  Contact us at thehbcucareercenter@yahoo.com if you are interested in taking this assessment.

MAPP – The MAPP career assessment is perfect for students, graduates and working adults. You’ll get a wealth of information to help find the right career that matches your unique assessment profile.

Values Assessment – The Values Test can help you learn more about your underlying work needs and motivations, and can help you decide what is important to you in a job.
