Dear Aspirant,

I believe instead of making random choices or under influence or media or parental pressure, every student when he/she is in 10th std, should take the psychometric tests to decide their future career path.

These tests are scientific in nature, unbiased and reflect the true personality and aptitude of the test giver, however the test giver should be 100% honest while answering the questions of the test.

Choosing a career based on aptitude, interest, emotional quotient, inter personal abilities, is very important. Introspection does not give complete and sure results for selecting the career.

Best wishes

Hello Bhavya

The motive behind taking a career assessment test is to have clear picture about career choice. The test makes you fully aware of your skills, inclination and interests. It shows you the area where you can do great and the area which is not very suitable for you.

Students are engrossed in studies during tenth/twelfth standard and hence do not get much time to think about career options. Many a times the decision is taken depending on factors like salary of a particular profile, career chosen by friends or relatives, colleges that are nearby hometown etc. Indeed these things are not the deciding factors for career path.

A career assessment test is like looking at your own personality from a different perspective.

All the best
