On-line self assessment
Try the following
on-line exercises to increase your understanding of yourself and
to relate this knowledge to your career choices. Each of the sections
below contains an exercise to explore that part of you. As this
package is meant to help you begin career planning, after you finish
it come and see a career counsellor for individual follow-up. The
counsellor can help you interpret your results, brainstorm more
career options and help clarify any questions.
Please note the following:
- Each exercise
will take anywhere from 15minutes to 1/2 hour to complete. There
are four exercises. Your results will be more consistent if you do
all the exercises in one sitting.
- Once you
complete each exercise, your results are then transferred to the
Career Profile Summary. However, your results are not saved; once
you exit this section of the website, the information is lost.
Therefore, it is important for you to print
out your results or use the "Send results to e-mail"
option before you leave the self assessment section of this site.
- Once you
have completed all the exercises you may see patterns and themes
that indicate potential career options. Look for common words
and ideas among the four areas; these may give you some options.
you need help with relating the results to specific career options,
come and make an individual 1 hour career counselling appointment.
Since this is the beginning, your end goal may not be clear and
the counsellor can help clarify your options.
The following areas
will be covered for your on-line self assessment:
: the learned ability to do something well
Qualities : characteristics and needs that drive your behaviour
: activities and things that you like to do, learn about and talk
: rewards, satisfaction and desirable qualities you seek in your
