Now there is an easy way for people with limited reading ability or special needs to explore their career interests and find a job that fits their personality.
This assessment provides a quick way for people to identify occupational interests by using pictures of people at work rather than text-based descriptions. Test takers are presented with 36 question items consisting of three pictures each and then must choose which of the three portrayed work environments seems most interesting. Based on the pictures selected, the Picture Interest Career Survey creates a profile of the individual that leads directly to career information and potential job matches.
In a survey of 2,098 individuals who completed this assessment online:
Select the format that works best for your clients’ or students' needs. The print version is ideal for in-person meetings and workshops and can be a helpful reference tool during one-on-one discussions.
The online version offers automated scoring and allows individuals to complete the assessment at home at their convenience. Results are immediately saved and provided to administrators. This option is ideal for serving or advising individuals who are unable to meet face-to-face.
