“For some folks, deciding which career to call their own isn’t so easy. It’s not that they’re unfocused or even lazy. It may simply be that their own talents lay undiscovered or that they have so many interests it can be hard to narrow down which one they are most fascinated by. This is where a career test can come in handy. While there are a number of different assessments available, a career test is typically a series of questions that classify answers into certain categories. These categories indicate if one if introverted versus extroverted, intellectual versus emotional, critical versus perceptive and other like values. Once the test is finished, the answers are then totaled into the appropriate categories.
There are no right or wrong answers on a career test. In general, the questions are actually statements that describe certain personality traits. Individuals will either mark true or false or a gradation that starts at very accurate, moves to neutral and ends up on very inaccurate. The tests can be very short, taking only a few minutes to fill out. Others can take up to ten minutes to finish. Complimentary career tests are frequently found online but these are often abridged versions of actual tests. As part of a professional assessment, a career test can be quite extensive and require a small fee.
