QUESTION: It has been suggested I take a career assessment before I start my next job search. What will be the value in that?
Career assessments can help you understand your professional needs and target professions and environments that play to your strengths and interests. The more effort you put into your assessment, the more helpful it can be. Stay open-minded to the results and view it as another strategy you can use, along with informational interviewing, networking, and reading books in your field of interest.
A targeted job search tends to yield the best results. Career assessments can help you better understand yourself and see how your interests and strengths align with particular careers paths. Different assessments provide different types of insights, but results often include descriptions you can borrow from when writing your resume or answering interview questions.
