Self assessment tools

There are many types of self assessment tools available.  “Career/career personality tests” should not be seen as stand-alone tools as they are only one piece of the “puzzle”  and should be considered as part of a wider process of self understanding and career development coaching.

Working with a career coach is important to help make sense of all the information and resources, helping you to clarify directions and support your decision making process.

The following are general tools that can help support self awareness and learning about aspects of yourself that can help you to understand what sort of career may help you "find your purpose".
