Need Help Deciding What Career is Right For You?

A big mistake that many people make when choosing careers is to make decisions based on popularity or earning potential. While these two factors are important, they are not sufficient reasons for making important career decisions. No matter how popular or well-paying a job or career may be, if you have no passion or natural interest in it, you will most likely not be satisfied. And in most cases, you won’t do as well as people who have a natural inclination for the field or career.  And that’s where pyschometric tests can help. In partnership with CareerPlanner.com, College Mouse provides you with the opportunity to research what potential careers best match your character, personality, interests and values. For $24.95 (less than the cost of a upscale restaurant meal), you can get a comprehensive report that will help make sure your career choices match your own personal strengths.  For more on the Career Test and Career Counseling, click here.
