Career Test Controversy - Is Testing Your Career Skills Valuable?


Many job seekers who are looking for some guidance on setting a career path are often directed to take a career test. A series of questions meant to define your interests and point out a suitable career choice, career tests are sometimes looked down upon as being more of a hindrance rather than a helpful assessment of your skills.

Career tests are available at job centers, universities and community schools for those who are unsure which career would suit them best. The tests vary with each school or job center, but are usually free of charge and will present the test taker with a series of jobs that may possibly be of interest to them.
