Self Assessment

Discover Your Career Interests

What motivates you? How do you define success? Career satisfaction stems from a clearer understanding of what you want. This understanding can take time to develop, and what you want might be a moving target. It’s important to start your career with some self-awareness and to make time throughout your life to reassess what you want and what makes you happy. Career self-assessment involves the following four components:

  • Personality: What motivates you and makes you happy
  • Interests: What you love
  • Values: What’s important to you
  • Skills: What you’re good at

Taking time to reflect on these things will help you to build stronger resumes, write more compelling cover letters, and interview with focus and confidence.
