The career assessment used is an objective measure to help students choose a career path. Measuring students’ interests allow them to expand their possibilities. The test helps them explore different career options, and it gives them reliable and scientific information about themselves rather than relying on personal observations. It offers students a chance to make an honest self-evaluation of their talents, abilities, and interests.
Features of the career assessment –
The career assessment used is a Pearson assessment tool that is the most updated version to provide additional occupations, new suggested readings, new vocational codes, and career resources.
Basic interest, occupational, and non-occupational scales offer data on 111 occupations requiring varying amounts of post-secondary education.
The inventory closely matches the distribution of professional and nonprofessional jobs in the labor force, making it well-suited for assessing groups with various career aspirations.
The assessment compares an individual’s occupational interests to 100+ specific careers that reflect a broad range of technical and professional positions in today’s workforce.
