How is your career test different than free online career quizzes?
There are many free career quizzes online and some of them seem to provide insightful information with a few clicks of a mouse. However, when it comes to making wise career decisions that give you confidence that you’ll be making putting your life on the right track, are you willing to act on their advice?
Most of the free online career quizzes provide minimal value. They are not completely dubious, but they are no where near as sophisticated as professional aptitude testing that is personalized to take into account your unique mix of aptitudes, personality triats and career situation. Most online career tools are designed to skim the surface, and even the more in-depth online tests are inaccurate in what they intend to measure as well as how they interpret the results. The real question is whether online tests give you the confidence to act on what you learned about yourself.
The real value derived from any career testing process is how well your aptitudes are measured and interpreted. When it comes time to make major life decisions, it’s a wise investment to have your aptitudes professional measured and to consult with a highly experienced career scientist to help you make sense of your test results.
