As they finish high school and step foot into the rest of their lives, many teens would do well to invest the time needed to figure out what they truly care about, why they care about it, and how that relates to different careers. By doing so, teens can reduce trial and error, be more confident in their education and job selection, and find more opportunities to gain valuable experience.
When people decide to take an interest assessment, they generally do so for a few reasons. A few of the most common are:

Once you've completed the JobTest.org interest test and received your results, you'll likely want to dive right into unpacking them. When you do, we'll provide step-by-step instructions and feedback about each component of your report, including how it relates to your personality and career path.

Depending on how the test is designed and administered, it may come with certain requirements for how to respond to each question. Before starting your interest test, take the time to fully read and re-read the instructions in order to ensure you don't waste time or money.
When faced with questions about your professional goals and dreams, it's entirely understandable that you may feel the need to hedge or qualify your answers—either due to societal pressures or your own doubts. When this urge arises, remind yourself that you'll only get the most accurate results if you're as honest as possible throughout the testing process.
Often, career tests will suggest options and paths you may have never even considered, some of which may seem radically different from what you've done in the past. When this happens, take the time to fully understand why the test is suggesting these options. Usually, doing so will give you greater insight into your skills and the opportunities available to you.
While a career test can offer profound insights and invaluable information, it's important that you try to answer questions naturally. When you spend too much time agonizing over your responses, you're less likely to give genuine, authentic feedback to the results algorithm. By answering naturally, you make the testing process more organic and, ultimately, more accurate.
Depending on which JobTest.org testing package you choose, you'll receive an extraordinary amount of information about every aspect of your professional life, from your work personality to salary ranges for potential careers.

Whether you're just beginning your first career or are an established professional, setting or reaffirming career goals can be an extraordinarily important and empowering process. By having your test results on hand while you do so, you can make sure that your goals align with what you actually value in your work, such as specific passions or types of work environments.

When pursuing career goals, few things are as valuable as a good support system.
