Computerized Internet Assessments Persons can take the Interests and Work Profiler assessments to assist them in their career choices. These assessments tools are designed to help persons identify their interests, skills, personality type and values.

Research
A wide array of information in the form of pamphlets, magazines, employment encyclopaedias, brochures and video tapes is made available to all persons who visit the Centre.

The Career Key This is a self-assessment tool which uses the Personality Theory to help persons determine their personality type, which can in turn lead to a most satisfying career option. It aims to show the relationship between one's personal attributes and different careers.

  • Realistic -"Doers"
  • Investigation -"Thinkers"
  • Artistic - "Creators"
  • Social -"Helpers"
  • Enterprising -"Persuaders"
  • Conventional -"Organisers"
