Web Sites 

  • Career Cruising – This is a great site for college exploration, also.  Take the Matchmaker test to get a list of careers.  Be sure to answer more questions after the first round of 39, because you will get better suggestions.  Once you find a career, click on it and use the Education link on the left side of the page to find colleges that will prepare you for that career! Make a portfolio if you want to save your results.
  • California Career Zone – This site has 3 career assessments!  Especially recommended is the Interest Profiler, which has 180 questions.  Be sure to create an account so that you can save your results.
