Career Choice Assessment

R 400,00 each



Everyone hopes for a job and career that will lead to happiness and success. The career choice assessment matches an individual to a career and the correct career-path to choose a satisfying job and reach his or her full potential. Four kinds of information are included in the two-and-a-half-hour assessment:

Current career interests. What does the person think they want to do? This is assessed using the Field-Environment-Duty inventory of jobs, which asks for choices from lists of career fields, places of work, and types of work to be done.

Hidden career interest. When people are tested for career guidance, they already have some opinions about themselves and what they know about work. However, this career guidance process is not simply a matter of asking what career the person wants. This assessment examines what the person is really interested in learning. Very often this information sheds extra light on what will be the best career-path and narrows down the options.

Personality-career matches. People with similar personalities tend to do the same kinds of jobs and be happy and successful at them. For example, think of the difference between a successful accountant and a successful musician. Each of the Fields-Environments and Duties has a unique personality profile. Having this information at the beginning of a career can pinpoint where a school-leaver should ultimately aim, making all future career decisions easier.

Academic abilities. Everyone has different levels of different academic abilities involved in learning and doing exams. Each field-environment and duty requires different abilities, no matter whether learning will be academic or on-the-job. The aim is to find the best fit of abilities for jobs.

An example of the   pdf Career choice report (39 KB)  you will receive is given.
