Your personality – those characteristics, traits, and preferences that make you who you are – is a major factor in determining which occupations are best for you. People who follow career paths that match their personalities are more likely to be both satisfied and successful.This DVD introduces you to one of the best ways to discover which jobs are right for your personality. It’s called the RIASEC personality theory, and it is a time-tested tool for exploring and deciding on a career.
You learn how the tasks and work environments of several different jobs correspond to various personality types and which jobs are a better fit for each type. Along the way you will discover careers that match your personality type the best.
