The Caribbean edition of The Career Key has been produced by CHOICES Career Advice, publishers of CHOICES Magazine, for several years.
The Career Key is a professional measure used with a variety of groups – secondary/high schools and college students as well as adults – in career counseling and career guidance programmes and workshops.
Using The Career Key, individuals assess their resemblance to Holland’s 6 personality types – realistic, investigative, artistic, social, enterprising and conventional - and identify their most promising career options.
It takes approximately 20 - 30 minutes to complete, scoring is part of the process and the result of the test is available immediately. Numerous studies over the past 15 years support its reliability, validity and helpfulness.
Its content has been modified especially for the Caribbean region and it is now being used in schools in Jamaica with markets developing in the wider Caribbean region also.
Using The Career Key will help the user to determine their personality type and thus understand what would be a good, satisfying career for them.
Such career exploration will also help in laying a sound educational path with specific goals in mind and in helping to develop a clearer view of yourself, what is important to you and the jobs that suit you best.
The publication is particularly recommended for students entering secondary school, those in 9th grade (3rd form) who will be choosing the subjects which they will do at examination level and also those at 5th/6th form level or those about to move from secondary to tertiary.
Guidance/career counsellors who use The Career Key will also be able to organise their school career talks with specific careers in mind knowing that they will be most beneficial to their students.
