Career Assessment

Do you know what you like to do or what you are good at? A career assessment is an excellent way to learn more about how a variety of careers might suit you. At MCETD, we use the online Skills & Interests modules from the Illinois workNet Center to discover your interests, talents, and strengths.  There are 4 assessments, each taking 10-25 minutes to complete.  

√  Career Cluster Inventory - Provides a graph indicating how your interests match up to various career areas.
√  Interest Profiler - Organizes interests into 6 categories of work with a score between 0 and 30.
√  Work Importance Locator - The Work Importance Locator can help you learn more about your work values and help you decide what kinds of jobs and careers you might want to explore.
√  Workplace Employability Skills Assessment - Provides scores for 9 employability soft skills.
