The recession has caused millions of Americans to lose their jobs as a result of budget slashing, but for some individuals, this could lead to an entirely new career path that could be filled with endless possibilities.
After a career in banking, Bill Blohm decided to take a career aptitude test in hopes of finding a profession that could meet his needs, according to the Courier-News. When he found a career advice book with an aptitude test inside, he learned that he was best suited for either computer network administration or working as a librarian.
Thinking the librarian gig sounded more interesting, Blohm decided to follow the advice, telling the news provider that it’s been "the best job he’s ever had." However, Blohm also noted that due to hard times, job searching is not what it used to be.
A career aptitude test can match a person’s qualities and skills through a variety of questions, helping them establish where their professional strengths lie and what could be a good profession for their qualifications.
