What is a career/interest assessment?

Everyone has a different view of the world and themselves. By having a better understanding of your interests and skills, you are getting a jump-start on your successful future by having self-knowledge. In an assessment, you rate activities based on enjoyment, take note of your personal qualities, and note your social preferences. Based on the results, you can determine the career areas and pathways that match your interest and personality type. This will help you determine which career clusters will match that career pathway and your interest areas.
