The Career Priorities Profile (CPP) assessment empowers individuals to identify priorities and evaluate their career or job choices based on those priorities.

The CPP provides a structured method for career exploration that leads individuals to identify whether their chosen careers are compatible with their personal and work priorities. The CPP contains steps in which individuals gather information about their preferences in regard to work, prioritize them, and relate those priorities to their careers of interest.

The final step of the CPP involves an analysis of the information gathered and goal planning.

The CPP is designed for all career decision makers but is particularly helpful for people who have to change jobs or careers due to the onset of a disability or a change in life circumstances.
