Career Assessment

The only place to start the career adventure is with you. Knowing as much as possible about yourself is critical to the decisions you make in the future. This is the chance to discover and appreciate the things that make you a unique individual.

The adventure begins by looking at different areas of your life and experiences with the goal of making any fuzzy or vague aspects more real and concrete. Self –assessment reveals who you are more clearly, then you can connect with a career that brings you meaning and fulfillment. Some of the things that can to be looked at during self- assessment are:

  • Who are you? Who would you like to be?
  • Motivations-What drives you?
  • Life Stages-Where do you fit?
  • Values-How well do you know yourself?
  • Abilities/Skills-Were you born with them? Can you learn them?
  • Are you ready for the workplace?
  • What makes your personality unique?
  • What do you enjoy doing?
