Choosing a career and working towards a specific profession takes a lot of time, energy and commitment. But what if you choose the wrong one?

Too many people end up with a job they aren’t happy doing because they choose the wrong career that doesn’t suit their natural skills and personality. And that can hurt business all around.

If you’re an HR specialist you know happiness on the job matters. Employees that aren’t happy and satisfied with their work aren’t as productive as they could be. Positive work cultures where employees are happy have higher levels of engagement. When employees are engaged they’re invested, get more done and have better potential for job growth.

So, how can job seekers find a career that suits their natural talents and interests?

The answer is actually much simpler than you may think. An in-depth job assessment can provide insights that reveal which occupations will provide the most happiness.

 

Find Your Happy Place With an Advanced Job Assessment

A job assessment is a hiring tool that many HR professionals overlook, but job seekers could actually benefit just as much or more from using them. An assessment will ask a series of questions to gauge knowledge, interest, and skills. However, the best job assessments also delve into personality traits and behavior.

The question isn’t should you use a job assessment to find the best career path, it’s which assessment should you use?
