Searching for a Career?
Are you thinking about a career change, or attempting to determine what career you are best suited for? In either case, Careeronestop.org can help by offering you the opportunity to take a few assessments.
[The excerpt below is taken From Careeronestop.org]
Assessments can help you choose a good career fit. Career assessment is a way to learn more about how well a variety of careers might suit you. Each assessment focuses on a specific area, such as skills, interests, or values. Typically, an assessment asks you to answer questions about what you like, don't like, what’s important to you, and what your strengths are.
Since assessment results may relate to as many as 900 different occupations, don't panic if your results include careers that don't interest you. Experts recommended that you take more than one assessment to broaden your ideas before you make a decision. It can also be helpful to talk with a career counselor, family and friends before making a career decision.
