Career Testing for Teens
Career testing enables your teen to start the college admission process aware of the exact options for his/her major and career before applying to colleges. Find out how your teen's skills preferences, temperament and personality fit into careers and how those interests are tethered to college majors. Discover the effectiveness of Vocational Psychology and how it can immediately help your college bound teen to identify their true career direction and undergraduate major. Eradicate the guesswork from career and college decision-making through career testing. The Strong Interest Inventory and MBTI allow your teen to find out, while they are still in HS, what they need to know.
Career testing is the foundation of a successful college admissions process and undergraduate career. Students interested in career testing need to have completed the 10th grade or be 16 years of age.
