HOW CAN I ACCESS CAREER INTEREST TESTS?

HOW DO I KNOW WHICH CAREER INSTRUMENT IS RIGHT FOR ME?
Simply call Blu Ripples, we will help you identify your individual career tests needs by listening and guiding you based on your individual circumstances.
Then, because psychometric instrumentation including career interest tests have ethical guidelines we will ask you a few questions about your individual circumstances, not to judge or discriminate, but to make sure you meet the ethical administration requirements of each instrument.
That is, do you meet the minimum age requirement, can you read and comprehend English at the minimum age category for the individual instrument, do you possess a medical or mental health consideration that may affect your cognitive abilities and thus would produce a skewed result.
WHAT INFORMATION CAN I EXPECT TO RECEIVE FROM THIS PROCESS?
Just like us, each individual instrument is different; that is, each instrument has a different purpose and outcome objective.
Simply put, some instruments will provide you with basic information for example a three digit code and a list of occupations that fall under this code whereas other instruments may provide you with a more comprehensive analysis for example identifying your:-
- Academic Satisfaction Preferences
- Career Impluses
- Job Groups
- Job Similarity Data
- Occupational Analysis
- Occupational Themes; and
- Work Role Analysis
- Work Personality Preferences
Therefore, before you decide to undertake a Career Interest Test(s); it is important for you to determine what information you would like to know; are you seeking some basic information and are happy with just a code and list of occupations or are you looking for something more indepth for example a career instrument that will provide some insight into your academic satisfaction preferences and/or work personality preferences.
