Career Tests: Choosing the right career test to choose the right career

A valid career test can help you in choosing a career. Career testing can give you valuable career help. You can,

• Identify good career options,

• Learn about yourself, and

• Understand how the career you choose affects your job satisfaction and success.

We have worked hard to maximize these benefits for Career Key users. And, quite frankly, I think we are the best on the Internet.

What surprises me is the number and popularity of fake career tests online. These are career tests that "say" they measure certain traits, like your personality, but they don't. A valid test is the result of scientific research; not greed. Their graphic design and claims are often impressive, but they are a hoax. They are created to sell you something or get your personal information to sell to others. Millions use them. And, unfortunately, many people are misled and harmed.

Have you used a valid career test? Was it helpful?

Other than career tests, have you used other methods in choosing a career?

Have you tried any of the methods recommended at our website? Like, Learn More about Yourself or Learn More about the Jobs that Interest Me? How helpful were they?
