How do I decide if I am career fit?

A significant part of career development is to become aware of one's own values, skills, interests, personality characteristics, preferred work environments and preferred audiences.  This information may be used to narrow the focus of your occupational exploration in any or all of the following areas:

  1. Utilizing as a basis for deciding among career options
  2. Applying as a filter to employers and job offers
  3. Using to articulate personal strengths in cover letters, resumes and interviews
