In a lukewarm economy, self-employment careers are an attractive option, especially for growing numbers of older workers. People want to regain some control over their employment so "being your own boss” is more attractive than ever. The Self-Employment Key website helps people considering self-employed career options make a good decision, based on the best science and practices of career counseling.
The Self-Employment Key offers a special self-employment-focused version of the popular Career Key test, based on the respected Holland’s Theory of Career Choice. The Career Key Self-Employment test accurately measures a user’s similarity to Holland six personality types and shows matching occupations with a significant number of self-employed people in them.
