Career Testing Tools-Work Preference Inventory

Here’s another good, quick online career test. It’s 24 questions and only takes about 15 minutes to complete. It tests for the type of work tasks you prefer to work on. Work Preference Inventory.

Again, as I mentioned in a previous post, I don’t recommend using these tests alone. Whenever I recommend a career testing tool to a client, like the MAPP or Rockport, I let them know they need to use the test results in conjunction with a coaching session or two. This is because each test measures specific things about you – like your skills, motivations, or work style for example. What they typically don’t do is provide a complete, comprehensive picture of all of the components you need to consider in defining/determining the ideal career for you. To get that, you really need to have a coaching session with a certified career coach who knows what to look for in defining the ideal career path.

The career tests I recommend are: MAPP, Rockport and True Colors. Good luck! Hallie
