The test also measures two personality dimensions research shows are related to success as an entrepreneur: Conscientiousness and Openness to Experience.
The user explores and selects matching self-employed careers they want to learn more about, adding them to a customized “My List. ” They can access and change this list for 12 months.

Finally, the online test includes an exclusive PDF download listing of all the careers displayed in the Career Key test. This allows the Self-Employment Key user to explore more matching career options, beyond those with 10% or more self-employed.
Using a science-based decision making process, the Self-Employment Key test and self-help articles help people make a more confident decision about whether to become self-employed. The test costs $9.95 per test taking. With this recent update, there are many new group administration features along with a group discount for purchasing more than five test takings.
