Portland, OR (PRWEB) April 28, 2014
The new version of The Career Key’s valid career test, http://www.careerkey.org, now matches users with over 700 college majors and training programs. This research-based career and college major test also has a new mobile-friendly design and new group administration features.
The Career Key test accurately matches a person’s Holland personality to careers and college majors. Presented as part of a science-based decision making process, taking the test leads to more confident, successful career and education decisions.
Developed by nationally recognized counseling psychologist Dr. Lawrence K. Jones, NCC, the Career Key test is based on Holland’s theory of career choice, the most respected and popular career theory used by professional career counselors. It is an accurate, valid measure of Holland’s six personality types (also referred to as Holland Codes): Realistic, Investigative, Artistic, Social, Enterprising, and Conventional.
After measuring a person’s strongest personality types, the Career Key test displays hundreds of careers and college majors that fit them best. Research shows this personality-career and personality-major match leads to greater job satisfaction and success in college. Career Key's unique method of displaying careers and majors in groups of worker traits, skills, and abilities helps people narrow their choices.
Users save matching careers and majors that interest them to “My List.” At the end, they can read high-quality, up to date information about each career and major on My List. They can also return, explore more options and change their list for 12 months.
The new version of the test also includes new group administration features such as viewing individual test takers’ results. At the same time, the Career Key continues to offer a significant discount to groups, much lower than comparable valid Holland measures.
The Career Key test is offered online, in a paper-pencil format, and in pre-printed booklets sold at Amazon.com and the American School Counselor Association website bookstore.
The Career Key test’s user-friendly new design and functionality was made possible by Seattle Web Group, with additional contributions from Seattle based Circa Consulting and Barb Rowan Design.
