Whether you come to LCSC with a major and possible career path or have no idea at all of a direction, a career assessment is a good way to either clarify or confirm your choices. The Career Assessment Reflection provides you with the opportunity to review, understand and relate your scores to the possible major and career choice it helps to point you toward. First, a bit about what the categories and scores mean in the Kuder Journey Assessment.

The Assessment Reflection offers you the opportunity to spend some time understanding what your assessment says about how you feel about the above categories. It has you express why the possible occupations it points you towards are something you are or are not interested in. It may point you to a possible career choise you had not previously considered.
Kudor Journey Assessments also explore the expected growth and salary by career within the USA. It offers what is the projected demand for this field and how much education is needed to be employed in this major.
