What is a Career Assessment Test?
Career assessment tests provide insight into an individual’s unique strengths and interests. The term “test” can be misleading, as these tests do not assess intelligence or knowledge. In fact, there are no right or wrong answers. Rather, they are designed to pinpoint particular career fields and work settings that the respondent would be most likely to enjoy.
How Does the Consultant Use the Test Results?
The career consultant will interpret and analyze the test results, and then s/he will talk in-depth with the client about how those findings can best be used. For example, Alex’s test results indicated that farming would be an ideal profession for him. Alex, however, had no interest in leaving his life in the city to become a farmer. The career consultant recognized that Alex might be well-suited for a profession that draws from skills that farmers need, such as using data to forecast changing economic and weather conditions. The career consultant suggested that Alex may consider the field of Operations Management. This option capitalized on Alex’s unique talents, but made better sense for his lifestyle and interests.
