Career Self-Assessment Tools

Career assessment is an important part of the career planning process because it allows you to identify and reflect on your values, interests, abilities and personality preferences. Knowing your personality type and preferences can help you discover your ideal career and work environment. It can also help reveal your skills and natural talents — which can help you decide which careers or jobs would best suit your unique skill set.
