Comment from P.A., Richland, WA

... our daughter did do the online exercise. She is a sophomore in high school and for the last couple of years has said she wants to be a dental hygienist. I have thought that something along the teaching line would better fit her gifts but haven't said anything - I want her to come to her own conclusions. After doing the tests several of the jobs it came up with for her were in the teaching field :) as well as creative fields and of course no dental hygiene at all. so she did a little research and found that she really doesn't fit the profile of someone who would enjoy dental hygiene, so she's starting to rethink her decision. This tool has been very helpful so far!

With each purchase of the Make a Career Profile, we recommend that you purchase the Unlock the Treasure Chest,a step-by-step guide to explore careers and college majors.
