Studies show that people who work in a career that supports their intrinsic interests are happier, more successful and better fulfilled in life. For individuals feeling stuck in an unsatisfying job, considering a major career change, or re-entering the workforce after an extended absence, the Adult Career Testing Package provides a positive first step towards a career path more aligned with intrinsic interests, personal style and individual strengths.
Assessments in this online package include: Wonderlic Personnel, Strong Interest Inventory, Work Personality Index and Career Values Scale. These assessments focus on aptitudes, career interests, personality in context of the work environment and career values.
Upon completion of your online assessments, a confidential one-hour debrief session with a professional career counsellor will be scheduled approximately one week later. During this session, participants receive a series of personalized reports, discuss their assessment results and make an action plan. All counselling appointments take place in downtown Vancouver at UBC Robson Square.
