Career Interest Assessments

Career interest assessments help individuals discover their real interests and use these to provide insights into potential career paths.

Who should take these assessments?

With the changing nature of work, career interest assessments are more important than ever. Career interest assessments attracted students who were planning their career paths. But now, people at any stage of life can use them to confirm their current career’s viability or re-evaluate their decisions made years ago. Assessment guidance reports help people determine what they need to learn to pursue a new line of work or progress in their current role.

Six good reasons to take Talent Transformation’s Career Interest Assessment:

1. Find direction: Identify your areas of interest (indeed, your passion) and plan for your future career

2. Explore new options: Talent Transformation customizes every career guidance report to match your interests. These reports use artificial intelligence (AI) to suggest careers of interest using the Occupational Information Network (O*Net) database of 923 occupations.

3. Save time and money: Talent Transformation is a charitable foundation and provides its assessments free of charge. So answering a few questions and reading the guidance report keeps you from wasting time, energy, and money exploring careers that are unlikely to suit you.

4. Build confidence: Being aware of your career interests enhances your sense of direction and helps you feel more confident about your career choice.

5. Avoid career-related frustration: Frustrations at work stem not from a lack of interest, and potentially a bad boss, not a lack of ability. Knowing your career interests helps you select career options that will suit your underlying interests and personality traits.

6. Achieve career success: Many studies have revealed the correlation between career interests, high job satisfaction, and high performance.

Why choose Talent Transformation’s career interest assessment?

It is up-to-date and considers the future of work! We have engaged the world’s leading to develop our career interest assessment and the algorithms to provide customized reports with guidance. We have used American Psychologist John Holland’s highly regarded career development model, the RIASEC Code – also known as the Holland Code. Holland delineated six areas of career interest and six corresponding work environments: Realistic, Investigative, Artistic, Social, Enterprising, and Conventional. He demonstrated that a match between an individual’s interests and work environment brings high job satisfaction and improved performance.

The Holland Code is the basis for other assessment instruments, including the Strong Interest Inventory and the Self-Directed Search. Several books offer more detailed information about the Holland Code. These titles include  50 Best Jobs for Your Personality (Jist’s Best Jobs, 2012)

Dictionary of Holland Occupational Codes (Psychological Assessment Resources, 1996) and CareerCode: Know Your Code, Find Your Fit (Amazon Digital Services, 2012).

Simply exposing your interests provide some value, however, comingling results with occupations and guidance that 

considers the future of work is where the real magic happens.

What will I learn from taking this assessment??

Your career interest assessment will identify your top three interest areas from the Holland Code.

We provide two reports. The short report will indicate your interest areas, pinpoint your favorite and least favorite interest areas, and recommend the next steps for further career exploration. If you want greater detail, you can request a longer report that provides more insights about your top interest areas, identifies possible career options, and suggests more next steps.
