Vocational Assessments

The use of vocational assessments has become increasingly popular due to the changing occupational landscape and to help individuals make an informed decision about possible career options, which is important because of the increasing cost of higher education. Sometimes vocational assessments are conducted when a worker is forced to retrain due to a work-related injury or disability.

These assessments typically involve the evaluation of a number of areas, including cognitive abilities, academic skills, personality variables, mental health, and vocational interests and aptitude. Once the assessment has been completed, the vocational report will provide information regarding areas of strength and weakness, as well as potential occupations that may be a “good fit” for the individual.
