For most of the semester, you will examine various professions. For this reason, I would like you to begin the semester by first determining what occupations interest you. To accomplish this, I would like you to complete two specific tasks: 1) complete a personality/occupational test; and 2) prepare an essay that summarizes the results of the test and then assesses those results based on your own career-related interests.

Step #1 - Completing the Personality/Interests Test
For specific directions on completing the test, see the following address:
http://www.christusa.net/testdirections.htm.If you do not
have a PAWS account, however, you can use the campus program (Focus II),
which is housed in B-1 Coates Hall. Keep in mind, though, that if you decide
to select this version, you will need to call Career Services (578-1548) to schedule an appointment to use the system.

Step #2 - The Report
Once you've completed the test, I would like you to devise an essay that summarizes the results of the test and then assesses those results.
The essay should be divided into three sections with the following headings:
Introduction, Results of Test, Career-related Interests/Values, and Conclusion. Please note that first level headings such as these should be capitalized and boldfaced (i.e. INTRODUCTION).

Introduction
The introduction should briefly discuss the type of test you took (in this case, the online program or the program located on campus) and should include any other pertinent introductory information (i.e. the date you took the exam, problems you encountered while logging on or attempting to schedule the test, etc.).

Results of Test
Here, you should discuss the results of the test. For example, what four letter
personality code did the test yield? Specifically, what does this code suggest?
What 3 or 4 career clusters did the test suggest would be most suitable for your
personality? According to the test, what specific careers (list 3 or 4) would be
suitable for you (or someone with your personality type)?

Career Related Interests/Values
The second section of the body should examine your values, priorities, and interests in relation to the results of the test. What are your interests? Would you prefer a free spirited, creative profession, or would you rather a more disciplined, detail oriented career? Do you prefer an environment with minimal or considerable supervision? Do you write well? Are you genuinely interested in science? Do you prefer working alone or with others? How important are financial benefits and job security? Can you afford (emotionally and financially) the training that this profession will require (stress and financial burden of grad school, medical school, law school, etc.)? Are any of your past work experiences relevant to your chosen profession? In short, how well do the realities of your chosen profession meet your criteria for a career?

Conclusion
In this section, you should come to some conclusion regarding the results of
the test. Were the results helpful? In your opinion, were the results accurate or
inaccurate based on your personal career-related interests/values? For example, is the suggested personality type correct in your opinion? If not, what might a more accurate type be? Are the suggested career clusters accurate? In other words, do the suggested clusters contain professions that genuinely interest you?
