The aim of career choice assessments is to guide individuals in their choice of career by offering them greater insight into their own strengths and personal preferences. It is applicable to anyone needing to make a decision about their career. This can be conducted on adolescents nearing the end of their school career as well as older individuals who have already set out on a career path and are considering a change in this path.
A career choice assessment involves the following:
Aptitude Test. This will help to pinpoint your strengths and will also indicate areas of weakness. It could also help those considering tertiary studies determine which field of study will best suit them.
Personality Test. This will help establish which career fits well with your personality. This also brings a deeper understanding of your emotions and defenses.
Interest Questionnaire.The interest questionnaire is used to determine which career you are most interested in and is most likely to offer you a high degree of satisfaction.
The results of all the above tests are then integrated in a full written report and recommendations are made with regards to career choice.
