Asssessment is often overlooked in planning a career or searching for a job. However, conducting a job search requires you to know who you are, what you have to offer the employer, what accomplishments you've experienced. It increases your self-confidence, helps you express yourself and support you to seek work that matches "you".
Continuing Education's Career Development Services staff focuses on helping you with understanding three particularly important asssessments; interests and how they relate to the job market; personality type and how it helps you relate to others; and understanding the skills employers need and want; hard skills, soft skills and the transferability of both of them (See the understanding skills page for more information.)
If you have a basic knowledge of these three assessment concepts, you will be better prepared to conduct research, make good career decisions and start taking action leading to your career goals.
