What makes a career assessment package successful?

Career assessments are typically successful if they meet two key criteria:

 

Appropriateness: A career assessment tool must be used only if it was designed for and is suitable (norming – refer to Q5) to the students being assessed on the basis of age, gender, ethnicity and grade level.

Comprehensiveness: There are multiple factors that contribute towards or may slow down successful career progression/development among all individuals. Interests in a certain profession may not be enough to build a career upon because the individual in question has skills sets and personality traits suitable for other careers. A comprehensive career guidance system will enable counselors and teachers to discern compatibility among interests, aptitudes, personality traits, work values and career development issues upon which their students’ careers may be based.
