What is an Interest Assessment?

When you go on a trip, you know what to pack in your suitcase, right? As you explore careers, it helps to know which skills, talents, and personality traits you bring to a job. An interest assessment can help you learn which careers might be the best fit for you. It is meant to help you find careers that you might enjoy. It will give you a broad list of career options that match your interests.

Don't panic if an assessment lists careers that don't interest you. Always take more than one before you make a decision. Talk with a career counselor or family and friends before making a career decision.
