Know Yourself, Know Your Career

So you know that you don’t want to practice law, but you don’t know what you want to do?  The first step in any career exploration is to learn about yourself.  Being self-aware will allow you to articulate why you want a certain career and why you are qualified. 

There are many, many different self-assessment tests and indicators out there (many of which we will explore in this blog).  So, where do you start?  An easy, quick place to start is with an online personality test.  So try a few and begin exploring!  (Click on the links below to go to the test.)

  • Human Metrics – Free Jung typology personality test.  Provides a list of occupations most suitable for your personality type.
  • Keirsey – Free personality test.  Personalities are broken down into four tempermants.  Tempermants are further subdivided into subcategories. 
  • My Plan – Offers 4 career assessment tests to help you find out what your interests are and understand how they relate to choosing a career.  A complete report for all 4 reports is $19.95 or purchase individual reports for $7.95 – $9.95.
