ABILITIES & INTERESTS – SUMMARY SHEET

Choosing a CareerThis page takes the results from Your Abilities Worksheet, and Your Interests Worksheet, puts them together… and hopefully helps narrow down a few possible career choices for you!

After all… that’s the whole point of these exercises… making you think about just that 🙂

Instructions:

TRANSFER your results from the previous two tests, over to the form below (you DID write them down as asked????)

Then click the TWO buttons below to begin…

What groups can you say you are BEST AT? i.e. those with GREEN BARS in the ABILITIES column?

What groups can you say you are MOST INTERESTED IN? i.e. those with GREEN BARS in the INTERESTS column?

1. In which groups do you have:
GREEN in both ABILITY and INTEREST?
ORANGE in either ABILITY and INTEREST?
RED in either ABILITY and INTEREST?

2. You are looking for those groups which you said that you were ABLE to do AND which you LIKE doing!

In other words… groups with TWO GREEN BARS.

OR…

Groups where you had BOTH ONE GREEN BAR and an ONE ORANGE BAR 🙂

There are lists of jobs available which suggest the sorts of jobs you might be suitable for. We’ll get to them very soon…

3. If you have TWO ORANGE BARS for any groups, you MIGHT be able to develop your abilities and/or your interests enough to consider doing some of the jobs that fit these groups.

Do you think it is possible/necessary for you to try to develop further abilities and/or interests?

4. You should possibly AVOID any jobs which involve doing the tasks where you had TWO RED BARS LOL


Let’s Discover..

What these groupings actually mean.
