Career assessments or personal inventories are a very useful tool to measure a person’s personality type, interests, skills, and work values. These inventories assist you in uncovering your personal attributes, as well as, narrowing down your likes and dislikes.
The goal of taking assessments is to confirm or discover an area of interest that you could potentially explore or pursue as a possible career choice. The information gained from these assessments will offer you suggestions on a variety of suitable careers for you. The self awareness you gain by taking these assessments will assist you into making wiser, more informed decisions about career choices, majors, and professional development. Furthermore, the results obtained from these assessments should aid a student in the exploratory stage of their decision making process. Remember that it is through exploring, that you will discover more about yourself and hopefully find career options that are right for you.
Remember that we will be taking a series of career assessments and personal inventories in our Applied Psychology 140 class this semester. I recommend you continue investigating and researching career options for you by utililizing our informative career center website from Saddleback College @:
