If you are unsure of your career path, a personality tool can help. These tools include an online assessment of personality and work preferences (things that you can do, might like to do or actions that most fit them). The assessment will then provide career paths that align with your choices. Each career path offers specific occupations that can be explored (summaries and details for each occupation).
Traitify is a quick picture based assessment providing feedback on personality traits, preferences and possible career paths.
