The Benefits of Career Assessments to Your Job Search

If you are a current job seeker or looking to change careers, career assessments can be very effective tools to help you achieve your career goals. Career Assessments can help job seekers identify their work style, their true strengths, as well as what they really want to do with their careers. The Myers-Brigg Type Indicator (MBTI) and Strong Interest Inventory (Strong) assessments are excellent tools to help identify:

  • What jobs are the best fits for you based on your skills
  • What motivates you
  • What gives you a sense of value in the workplace
  • What skills make you most marketable
  • What you are truly passionate about
  • What your strengths and weaknesses are
  • How to effectively communicate with others
  • Your values and standards

Career assessments provide self-awareness and career options you may not ordinarily consider. The Strong Interest Inventory provides a suggested list of top occupations that matches your existing skills, and these options can give you new ideas and occupations to consider as you continue your career exploration and planning. The MBTI is a personality assessment based on research by psychologist Carl Jung, and is an easy to understand set of ideas which helps people build strong relationships at home and in the workplace. The MBTI helps us learn how we operate as individuals, develop under-utilized aspects of ourselves, and learn about different types of people we may encounter.
