Why should I take a career interest test?

A career interest test can help you decide what kind of career path you should take. It can be difficult to assess your interests, skills and values on your own, especially if you are not entirely clear what kind of categories your interests and skills may fall into. Taking a career interest test will give you an assessment of your strengths and weaknesses without you having to analyze how your interests tie into your career strengths.

Some career interest tests are free to take online or through career service centers. If you don't have access to a career adviser, a career interest test can offer you at least some level of guidance.
