Can you answer the question "Who am I?" It's a question that will come up in nearly every interview, and it's critical that you can answer it honestly and confidently.
Career assessments and personality tests provide insight regarding personal strengths and weaknesses. Using these as reference points can help identify a career path that aligns with your goals and skills, guide your career planning, and prepare you for interviews.
