Testing can play a valuable role in helping people find the best academic and career goals. Over twenty five years of professional experience has made David Lawson an expert in understanding what career tests truly mean.
By far the most valuable career tests are the Myers Briggs Type Indicator (personality and behaviour) and the Strong Interest Inventory (interests). They are well validated, tried and true aids in making educational and career decisions.
Testing will not provide magical answers. It will help people understand what people who share their interests and behavioural preferences do happily and successfully in the workplace - no small thing.
The results of career testing are most powerful when consistent with people’s key life experiences and achievements. Integrating test results with what people know about themselves and have accomplished in life provides a strong foundation for planning.
Career testing and counselling can provide objective data upon which sound learning and work choices can rest securely. All you need is a guide to show you the way. Let David be your guide.
