Are you just starting out in your career and unsure about which direction to head in? Are mid-way through it and wondering about making a move?
Wherever you are, if you’re feeling uncertain about the next steps to take, there are plenty of resources and tools out there to help, including a career assessment.
While taking a career assessment doesn’t guarantee you’ll get your dream job, it does show what your interests, skills and abilities are. It also prompts you to think through your strengths and areas you’d like to pursue in your career, as well as the work environments that will be the best fit for you. Going forward, you’ll have more insight into where you should head on your career journey, so you can make the right moves.
Some different assessments that are available online include:
- My Next Move
- What Career Is Right For Me?
- com: Career Aptitude Test
- Career Explorer Career Test
- The Enneagram Institute
- The Myers-Briggs Organization
The effectiveness of these tests certainly depends on a few factors, including your own self-awareness about your strengths and weaknesses. However, if you’re honest during the assessment – and with yourself – you can gain a better understanding of where to focus your job search efforts in the future.
If you’d prefer more in-depth counseling, you can also hire a career coach. This is a professional who will help you determine the career field that is right for you. They can also work with you to transition into a different field that’s a better fit. During it all, they will offer expert advice on how to accelerate your job search, build a case for your promotion, or find a new path in your career.
