Whether you are a college student with little or no work history or an experienced worker seeking a new career direction, finding your way through the maze of career options available today can be daunting unless you have clarity about the choices that are appropriate for you. This clarity can be gained only through careful and honest self-assessment of your personality, your values, your strengths and your skills.

Now is the time to begin a self-assessment process that will give you more choices, broaden your options, and give you the confidence to know you are on the right career path. A self-assessment will clarify your characteristics, interests, values and skills. It will define your strengths and your weaknesses. Looking for a match between these and the work you are considering is the most important step you can take before you write a resume or begin the search for a job. In fact, when the time comes to write your resume and prepare for a job interview, you will find the task easier if you have completed the self-assessment process firs! You are the place to start, so ask yourself, “What do I do well?”
