Need help finding a career aptitude assessment test
It is becoming increasingly evident that I'm going to have to get some more schooling before I can land a job, but I'm not certain I want to stay in IT. However I have no real clue what else I want to do.

Does anyone know where I can go to take some sort of career/personality assessment test? Everything I've seen online seems to be more of a way for web-based schools to collect contact information than a valid test.

1. Where I tool the tests
I took some tests about 15 years ago at a community college that offered "continuing education." We took two or three tests over the course of two Saturdays.

I just retook Myers Briggs a few months ago at the placement office of my former university. I believe it was offered to both alums and current students.

I hope that gives you ideas on where to find the tests.

2. Simple quiz
Q1: Are you honest?

a) Yes
b) No
c) Depends on what the meaning of 'honest' is


Scoring:

10 points for every "a" answer
5 points for every "b" answer
0 points for every "c" answer


Results and recommended career:

10 points or more: Wage slave
5-10 points: Investment banker
0 points: Politician

4. Go to the library and check out 'What color is your parachute?'
