Week 2 Project: Occupational Interest: Self Assessment
For this assignment you will write a two-page Occupational Interest Self-Assessment in which you discuss how your occupational interests and personality type, as determined by scores obtained on the Holland Code Career Assessment and the personality assessment found on https://www.16personalities.com/, match up with the career you have in mind as you are pursuing your academic studies at South University.
- Please think about your occupational interests, personality characteristics, and skills. To what extent are these similar/dissimilar to the qualities descriptive of you on both the Holland Code and the personality test? Do you agree with the results of the reports of the Holland Code and the 16 personalities test? Why or why not?
- How well do your personality characteristics match up to your anticipated career? Are there aspects of your personality that make your career choice a good fit or might your personality present some challenges to your eventual career?
- Wrap up your summary by considering your strengths and weaknesses and how knowing more about your “career personality” (based on the Holland Code and 16 personalities assessments) can help you hone your skills in anticipation of your career of choice. Moreover, discuss how knowing more about your occupational interests and personality type can aid you in your job searches, resume building, cover letter writing, and interviewing.
