Self-assessment is a way to learn more about yourself: what you like, what you don't like, and how you tend to react to certain situations. Learning about yourself is the first step in finding a good career fit.

Assessments are tools to help you explore your skills, interests, values, or other traits. These traits are then matched to a broad list of careers.

Many assessments are available, and none are the same, so it's important to consider the following before using one:

  • What does it measure?
  • Who developed it? Are they a trusted source? Has it been reviewed by a trusted source?
  • What kind of results can you expect? How can they be used?
  • Will you have to pay a fee to use it or get your results?

Visit Find Assessments to find one that's best for you.
