Career Tests and Tools
Various career tests and tools are available to help individuals in their career exploration. Please note that results from career tests do not provide a precise measure of career interests, but open the door for further exploration. For further explanation of your results, please consult a Guidance Counsellor at one of our nine school boards.
The Self-Directed Search® (SDS®) is a career interest test that asks questions about your aspirations, activities, skills, and interests in different jobs. From the responses, the SDS produces your personal three-letter Summary Code, which you can use to find occupations and fields of study that match well with your personality.
The SDS is based on John Holland’s theory that both people and work environments can be classified according to six basic types, Realistic, Investigative, Artistic, Social, Enterprising, and Conventional. It is designed to help individuals choose careers and fields of study that best match their self-reported skills and interests.
The SSD can be completed online and costs $9.95.
