Step 2 - Self-Assessment

Step 1 Step 3 Step 4 Step 5 Step 6

Know yourself. Your interests and skills, your values and your personality are important when establishing your goals. There are a variety of self-assessment tools available, both through the school and on-line.

Personality and Temperament Assessments:
Eureka - EUREKA CCIS is software used in California schools, career centers and companies to aid individuals exploring career possibilities. Testing is available in the FLC/EDC computer labs. A counselor can give you more information.

Keirsey - The Keirsey Temperament sorter is an on-line personality questionnaire.

Meyers-Briggs - An introduction to personality types.

Ennegram - The Enneagram describes nine personality types (reformers, motivators, helpers, etc.) which are nine compulsive defense mechanisms. The Enneagram type does not describe behavior, but the underlying motivations of behavior.

Transferable - As you begin your job search, it is important that you know your own qualifications. The University of Minnesota provides a list of five broad skill areas which are divided into more specific skills. By rating your skills in each area, you will have a better understanding of your abilities.

Self-Directed Search - The SDS is based on a theory that both people and work environments can be classified according to six basic types. People who choose careers that match their own types are most likely to be both satisfied and successful.

The Career Key - CK measures a person's resemblance to the six Holland personality types. Based on the results, users are able to identify occupations to consider.

Monster Career Center - A comprehensive data base of job openings, résumés and employer and job-seeking information.
