Career Help

Guidance CounselorJohn sent me an email asking for career help. He was specifically looking for a test that would tell him which job was best suited for him.

A while back I actually went to local school guidance counselors and got some nice career tests. I actually created an online version that you can see here Career Help Test.

In this video tutorial I present the best test I found. After the test you’ll find a brief description on the different career types and the best careers for each.

If you like this test, you’ll probably also like my personality tests which are extremely detailed and of course free. They can be found here Perfect Personality Test.
