Wheel Thank You Self-assessment is the process by which an individual takes the time to carefully identify skills and abilities, likes and dislikes, along with his/her work values and ethics to develop a comprehensive personal profile. A personal profile is used to evaluate suitable occupations, develop career goals, identify employers who offer the best potential for job satisfaction and growth, as well as providing the opportunity to meet or exceed income requirements. Developing a Personal Profile A number of self-assessment tools are available for your use in creating your personal profile. Using websites like "O*Net" can provide a wealth of information. Information like: job descriptions, occupational projections, wage and income figures, as well as links to other details like related occupations. Other websites, like California Career Zone, provide a fun and interactive way of looking at you're personality, your preferences, work values, as well as income needs all linked to matching occupational profiles. Our website, the Virtual One Stop, provides a number of interactive tools that can be used to build your personal profile and match with job openings. Go to www.cacareerzone.org and be sure and check out http://www.onestopmonterey.org/careertips.asp to begin your self-assessment Go to: www.onetonline.com Gathering information from company websites, market perspectives, financial projections, business journals, and even the better business bureau or local chamber are great resources that can all provide details about the company you're interested in.
