Career Assessment

October 9, 2018  

In many career assessment courses, taking a personality test is suggested. They can be very valuable. There are many out there, but garbage in, garbage out. It is only worth the quality of information that you put into it.

Aim for complete honesty, and clarity in your objectives. It does not have the ability to analyze human behaviour. It just analyzes data and therefore will provide you with guidance that may be incorrect or misguided only because the input isn’t clear or isn’t truthful.

If you’re five feet tall, it doesn’t matter how many lessons you take, you’re not going to Slam Dunk basketballs. So, being honest with yourselves in terms of what your capabilities are is a big part of understanding what your future might hold and how to get it.
