When I Grow Up

Most of us aren't really sure what we want to do when we grow up.  Here are some links and resources that will offer assessment tests, skills requirements and general occupational help to educate you about various career options. This is a great site for those of us who are not looking for traditional career planning, but rather to:  "live life on purpose, work at what you love, follow your own road."   We are affiliated with this site because it offers great ideas and tips for the entrepreneur in all of us!  

Focus Geared towards women, their online assessment tools and career information database will help to search for the ideal career. You first create a profile based on your interests, values, skills, and personality. With the profile you create, FOCUS then searches its online database to help you identify and analyze occupations and career paths that match your personal characteristics. With each occupation you explore you will learn about the duties, education, skills needed, specific working conditions, required training, job outlook, current and expected earnings, and much more! FOCUS is divided into 8 distinct phases. As you complete the different modules in the program you will be asked if you want to compare the results of the different phases. Take advantage of this feature - it will help you narrow down your options. FEE: $18.95

Occupational Outlook Handbook This online version provides you three ways to research career interests and find out average salaries, etc.

O*Net Online O*Net offers some great features including, searching occupations that use your skills, finding occupations related to the one you select, finding out characteristics of the worker and requirements of the work, and learning the specifics of your desired occupation.

Career Consulting Corner Changing your career at any age can be a little nerve rattling, but this site focuses on changing your career after 40.

SkillsOne Discovery A free personality assessment, Stanford University Press in collaboration with CPP, Inc. is offering a free assessment, Strong Interest Inventory®.  Very comprehensive, the test will take about an hour to complete, and will tell you about your own interests and personality, how they relate to other people in your current occupation, and common occupations for people with personality traits similar to yours.

Discover Your Perfect Career Quiz Based on the work of Swiss psychologist Carl Jung and two American women, Katharine Briggs and Isabel Briggs Myers, creators of The Myers Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI)® . Over the past 40 years, many millions of people have been introduced to Type through their jobs, churches or synagogues, counselors or books. Now it's your turn to get turned on to this powerful tool. But first, you have to figure out your Personality Type.

Career Currents This free career assessment was based on 40 years of development and success.  The Motivational Appraisal of Personal Potential (MAPP), powered by the International Assessment Network, provides a unique online assessment. (Takes about 25 minutes)
