MYTH #3:  One good career test is sufficient for determining a career direction.

Fact: As we stated earlier, you are unique and complex. God has designed you with a wide variety of "puzzle pieces" in your design. One assessment that looks only at interests or personality, for example, is not enough

To find a career you love, you need to have a thorough understanding of the key aspects of your design. When we work with clients, we utilize a composite of assessments comprised of both professional standardized career tests and self-assessments we have developed. Our goal is first to help our clients gain a detailed, in-depth understanding of their most-enjoyed skills and motivated abilities, interests, personality type, preferred roles, spiritual gifts, ideal working environment, etc. Then, they record and organize their testing results from a variety of assessments into their Life Calling Map, which enables them to see the dominant themes in their design, and to use the information effectively to identify careers of interest. The deeper your understanding of the complexity of your God-given design, the easier it will be for you to find the type of work God has created you to do.

The Truth about Career Testing

If you want to find work that fits or need to identify a new career direction, career testing can help you expedite the process, eliminate career mistakes and instill confidence about pursuing your chosen direction.
