College, Career, and Occupational Testing

 

“When I was a child my mother said to me, 'If you become a soldier, you'll be a general. If you become a monk, you'll be the pope.' Instead I became a painter and wound up as Picasso.”  Pablo Picasso

 

Individuals currently in a full-time job or preparing for college are likely aware of the significant amount of time that one invests in their career. The average adult will spend at least eight hours a day, five days per week, for 30 years working in their chosen occupation (62,400 hours). Thus, one's job can result in an incredible amount of disgruntled, dissatisfied and/or disenchanted time if working in a field that does not match with one's personality, interests and passions. However, work can equally be enjoyable, rewarding and fulfilling when in a job that does match with such character traits. 

 

Our college/career assessment provides information to help individuals find a match between who they are as a person and what they will do with the significant majority of their adult life. This evaluation is valuable for teenagers who are just starting to consider what profession they will pursue through college or certificate training through adults who are already established in a field and looking to change careers. More specific examples of those who benefit from such an evaluation include: 

 

  • The high school sophomore, junior, or senior that is not sure what to do after graduation, or uncertain if they even want to pursue higher education.

 

  • The parent of a high school or college student wherein that parent is hoping to reduce the increased financial burden resulting from their child frequently changing college majors. 

 

  • The teenager who has lost motivation for academics, believing that there is no valuable end result.

 

  • The college freshman or sophomore who is having a difficult time deciding upon a college major.

 

  • The adult who is looking for a part-time or second career.

 

  • The individual who is currently underemployed or unemployed and looking for a new career path or looking for an initial career path toward full-time employment.

 

  • The high school student who does not wish to pursue a four year bachelor's degree, but is uncertain of other career options available.

 

This assessment involves a battery of tests that are aimed at helping narrow down occupational and educational choices that would be most well-suited to an individual's personality and interests. The evaluation will also provide more clarity in regard to the vast number of occupations that exists in the United States and the types of training that are required.
