To find a career that fits you, you need to know about yourself. Self-assessment identifies what’s important to you. It’s the first step towards making effective career decisions.
Self-assessment helps you identify four important things:
- Who you are
- What you do best
- What people and places (environments) give you energy
- What motivates you
Knowing these things about yourself provides a foundation for your career.
