Career aptitude tests are powerful tools for both employers and employees alike. They can be used to gain insight into personal tendencies and make informed responses to career and hiring decisions.
Tests like these can differ in:
- Purpose (i.e. for career placement, selection, counseling, or training)
- What they measure (i.e. what they are designed to measure, be it personality type, skills, work approaches, values, or vocational interests)
- What they predict (i.e. performance, quality of work, management potential, career success and satisfaction, your next job)
- Format (online, paper form, in-person)
- Standardization and rigor (how subjective or objective are the test results?)
Some tests are highly structured, with definitive quantifiable outcomes; others are more flexible, and designed to be personally interpreted.
