Self Assessment and Interest Inventories

Values, interests, personality, and skills should be looked at in a good self assessment. Below you will find some self assessments available on the Internet.

..."I don't know what I want to do with my life.
... I'm not sure if I should go to college.
... My job doesn't quite fit me.
... Is there a test that can tell me what career is right for me?

"The answer to all of these statements lies in knowing who you are and what are your interests.You can't take a test that will, as if by magic, tell you what to do with the rest of your life. You can however use a combination of self assessment tools that will aid you in your decision.
