Q. How does this test determine what career is right for me?
A. This career test measures your personality traits, strengths, values, and interests, and uses those scores to match you with a list of ideal careers. The career assessment is based on two scientifically validated models for career planning: The Big Five model of personality traits, and the Holland Code model of career interest assessment. Using a unique combination of these two powerful career matching systems, the career test will determine which jobs are most likely to match your aptitude and satisfy your individual personality and motivational factors.
Q. What type of career test is best?
When looking to decide what career is best for you, there are various types of career tests you can choose, each with their own benefits. These include:
- Personality assessments. This type of test can help you find a career that suits your core personality traits and innate talents. A personality career test will measure your personality traits, and then show you what careers people with similar personality traits have chosen. Common career tests of this type include the MBTI® assessment and Keirsey Temperament Sorter.
- Interest assessments. This type of career test can help you find a job where the day-to-day requirements are a good match for the tasks and activities you enjoy doing. A career interests test will measure how much you like various categories of work tasks, and match you to jobs that are a good fit for those tasks. Career tests of this type include the Strong Interest Inventory and Self-Directed Search.
- Career aptitude tests. An aptitude test can measure a variety of determinants of job aptitude, including personality and interests, as well as skills like reasoning ability, reading comprehension, or intelligence. Skills-based aptitude tests are more often found when being evaluated for a particular job role, while more general aptitude tests can help you figure out what careers suit your natural inclinations.
If you are planning a new career or making a career change, the best career test is one that will give you a comprehensive assessment of your personality, interests, aptitude, and strengths.
