  • Improves the quality of your career exploration
  • Gives you relevant and useful knowledge about your interests and skills

A Vocational Assessment is a comprehensive evaluation that helps vocational counselors investigate and assess an individual’s work profile. The assessment involves analysis of transferable skills, employment history, training and education as well as their personal interests.
The assessment can be very helpful in identifying the more suitable job options they should pursue. This in turn helps them to actively achieve their employment goals and enjoy deeper job satisfaction.

What happens during a vocational assessment?

During a vocational assessment, the client and counsellor will explore the client’s:

  • Life history
  • Education
  • Work history
  • Hobbies and interests
  • Personality
  • Likes and dislikes
  • Personal circumstances
  • Health

An analysis of all these factors will help in determining the job options the client should pursue.
