Your career assessment includes the following two profilers: a) Vocational Interests Survey The Vocational Interests Survey assesses your interest in a variety of activities, industries and occupations to determine the careers and areas of study you are most likely to enjoy. It is based on over 5 years of research and contains an extensive database of more than 500 careers and courses. Duration: Approx 20 minutes b) Personality Type Profiler The Personality Type Profiler is based on Carl Jung’s Theory of Type as well as the Five Factor model of personality. It identifies both a 4-letter Jungian type and a 5th element for stress while offering 18 sub-facets that describe the unique personality of each individual. It assesses four aspects of your personality based on the following five areas:

  • Where you focus your energy (Extraverting vs Introverting)
  • How you gather information (Sensing vs iNtuiting)
  • How you make decisions (Thinking vs Feeling)
  • How you approach life (organiZing vs Adapting)
