I heard there was a free test to take about your personality and interests to help you decide upon a career but I don't know the name. #undecided #career-exploration #career-counseling

Hi, Tamra!

There are indeed lots of free tests that you can take online. I would encourage you to take a multi-pronged approach, as I don't feel one test is magical (certainly not offered free online!).

As with the students/clients that I work with, I'd recommend the following sites to take the assessments and learn more.
-- https://www.16personalities.com/
-- http://www.educationplanner.org/students/self-assessments/learning-styles.shtml
-- https://personalitymax.com/multiple-intelligences/
-- https://www.careeronestop.org/ExploreCareers/Assessments/interests.aspx

A personality test (MBTI), learning style(s), multiple intelligences, and career interest inventory can provide a well-rounded look at how you gather, perceive, and process information and communicate. I find that, together, I can better assist students/clients find their calling.

I hope that this information will prove useful to you as well! Good luck to you on this journey - and don't forget to enjoy the ride!

There are many. Here is one. Don't worry that you aren't in Texas!
https://lmci.state.tx.us/

Select "Texas Career Check"
From the "explore careers" drop down select "interest profiler"

There is other interesting info on this site, feel free to explore!

One thing to keep in mind is the difference between "occupation" and "industry."
Occupation is what you do, industry is the type of company you do it for.
An example, let's say you are drawn to the medical field, but, don't want to work with patients and aren't fond of blood.
You could be a forklift operator in the warehouse of a hospital!

Or, suppose you want to be a forklift operator, and aren't particular as to where. Then you have lots of choices! Construction sites, airports, schools, mail order companies, etc.

Best of luck!

I am excited for you -- you are embarking on a wonderful journey. I am going to add a recommendation to the earlier advice. Spend some time evaluating what "ignites your fire". What do you get excited about? Can you visualize a future doing that?

Your next steps are first steps on a path that will take interesting adventures. Seldom do we end where we started. Don't be afraid to take risks, venture out of your comfort zones, explore. Good luck.
