Hello Rohit,
 
 
Confusion and second thoughts is a part and parcel of an individual’s career path. We all get 
stuck at some or the other point in life, where we have no clue about the direction in which our 
career should move towards. We get so perplexed and clueless that some people end up in the 
wrong direction. Going by the herd mentality, we take a career that doesn’t suit us or is not 
meant for us at all. Therefore, the budding career enthusiasts should hold their horses and 
consider giving a deep analysis to certain things. For example, the education qualification one 
has achieved so far, the personal interest or passion of the individual, the future scope of the 
career one aims at and much more can be factors to be considered before deciding down on a 
career. 
However, one cannot ignore the fact that a part of our generation is too lost and confused even 
to come to rationality with such questions. Especially, the personal interest part of the story is 
what one cannot come to terms with most often. So, just like a modernized problem, the 
solution has also become modernized and advanced. And it's called Psychometric Career Tests 
that one can take to get many answers.  
  
The psychometric test is designed in a unique manner with questions that test the skills of an 
individual on various parameters. Usually structured for about 15 to 30 minutes, the test is 
conducted on the following basis- 
 
 
1.Aptitude or ability - A section of the test contains aptitude based questions to bring out 
the capabilities of the individual and thus give an analysis based on it. The questions are 
more of numerical and application related to testing a specific skill or knowledge of the 
test taker.  
2.Personality - this section of the psychometric test deals with the personal side of an 
individual. It brings out the character traits and psychological side of the person. Giving 
an analysis of driving emotions and behavior of the test taker.  
 
Based on these, the psychometric test reveals the basic traits of the test giver. Therefore, it also 
a part of the selection process initiated by the recruiters of various multinational companies. It 
helps the recruitment team to judge the candidate on various levels, from their skill sets to the 
basic nature of the candidate. This also aids in making the decision about hiring the candidate 
for the employers as they get to know the true analytical knowledge about them. One gets to 
judge the candidate over and above the regular CV and thus improve the human resource 
efficiency too.  
 
The psychometric test truly defines the positive of the person giving an outline of his strong 
personality and thus what career can suit them based on the same. The test not only gives 
career guidance but also helps us understand our own self to a large extent. Many times, we are 
not sure what can be suitable for us or not. Therefore, the psychometric test can surely come up 
with an apt solution to know your strengths and weaknesses better and thus work on them too.  
 
 
Once the test result gives us a complete report of our self, it becomes easy to navigate through 
various career options where we can move forward and shine among many. Thus, it can be used 
by students looking to give some direction to their career. And when you know the type of genre 
of a career that will suit you, how can that dream job be far?

Dear Aspirant,

To remove all the confusions, pressures, misinformations about one self and the careers, psychometric tests are best recommended. The 10th std level is the ideal and crucial education level where a career psychometric test should be done.

If its done, it can avoid a whole lot of problems which arise in careers like: Frustration, Changing tracks in career and starting from zero all over again, disappointment, waiting of years and money behind a wrong course or a job, etc.

Best wishes
