Career Evaluation – Are you on the Right Track?

     During our younger years, we asked ourselves, “What do I want to be when I grow up?”. The deciding moment comes when we apply for a course for our college education. Some consider a course that would make it easy for them to have a job after graduation, some choose on a course that could lead them to greater wealth, some put consideration on what course that would continue their family’s’ legacy, while some doesn’t even have the chance to have the right choices because of poverty, lack of information and limited access to resources.

     Choosing a course is a common problem among high school students especially for those who don’t have things sorted out yet. One cause of the dilemma is the typical diverging roads – the practical road, and the passion road. Due to the growing economy it may be practical to go into a career that is on demand in the job market. But, how many people made it into success stories because they followed their dreams and invested so much to their passion?

     To guide people for better understanding of themselves and their career inclination, there are different tests available online that could evaluate one’s personality, values and interests that yield useful results about one’s career inclination. These are interactive tests that could be easily taken and the results as well as the explanations are available afterwards. However, take note that these career evaluation tools are not “tests/exams” that have a right or wrong answers.

     Before choosing a career, it is very important that one shall have the chance to take these tests to analyze their personality, values and interest because knowing ones self can help to: ƒ

  • choose a career that could be a good match for their personality
  • understand others and communicate better with them
  • understand own behavior
  • work more cooperatively in groups with othersƒ
  • manage people better in a work situation
  • appreciate individual differences
