Assessment

Assess yourself before you wreck yourself. Start figuring out your tech career path now and see where you're likely to excel.

An assessment is great for helping you better understand your likes and interests. It also helps you define a career path. Learn more about which of your skills align with the expectations of a potential employer, or find out if the career you’ve always dreamed of is right for you.

Even if you’re pretty sure you know what kind of work environment is best for you, it’s still a good idea to assess your personality and natural abilities so you can tune in better to your strengths. The results you get will help you develop an action plan and start moving toward a career that capitalizes on your natural talents.
