Taking Career Interest Tests

Interested in learning more about what you might like to do or what you might be good at?

Remember, interest inventories are just one way of learning more about yourself and what you might be good at or what you might like to do when it comes to a career. There is one problem with personality-type instruments – they’re really good at helping you to see the ‘style’ that you use to do a job, but they don’t always do such a good job at helping you predict what jobs or careers you might be really good at. They might help you to get creative with your own ideas about careers, which is a very good thing. For that reason they’re good to take. They’re also fun!

Making decisions about a career includes a lot more than taking an assessment or inventory – it includes interviewing people that have jobs you might be interested in, going to an actual workplace for a tour, getting a job and trying it out, and doing research, both on the Web and through newspapers, magazines, books, and other literature.
