Hi! This is the last in the series of three posts about the Latitude Assessment Profile (LAP). I hope by now that you have a greater understanding of how the LAP can help you, whether you are are in high school, college, or an adult ready for a change.
High school students
High school students who are not yet sure which path they want to follow can explore potential careers, discover which style of classroom learning is best for them, and choose their classes to align with their aptitudes and ensure success.
College students who may have found some interesting classes or have some ideas about what they might want to do, but still have not chosen a particular path, can learn more about a specific career, what it takes to get there, explore an actual day in the life, number of openings in your preferred region, a salary range, and required licensing or certification.
It’s never too late to start a fresh, new chapter of your life. Discover a whole world of careers and avocations which match up your greatest strengths with your personal interests. Whether you're a parent about to launch her child into college and are ready to explore a career in the workplace, an adult looking for a change in career, or someone interested in learning more about who you are, you will find LAP an insightful guide in your exploration.
What You'll Get with LAP
1. Online assessment to measure aptitudes needed in today’s job market.
2. Interest survey to uncover the types of work (career, avocation, hobbies) you’ll find most satisfying.
3. Over 500 career recommendations based on your combined aptitudes and interests. Plus custom category views based on interest, salary, time investment, and number of national openings.
4. Career details including aptitude and interest fit analysis (see graphic below), college majors leading to that career, required degrees and other training requirements; starting, average, and top salaries; projected job openings; detailed description of daily job activities.
The LAP process will spark new questions (and answers) that you had no idea were so important to your success!
* Should I go to a school that offers big lecture classes or smaller, more intimate classes?
* Should I organize my assignments in my head, or do I need a calendar?
* Do I need a 3D model to get a better understanding, or are abstract ideas easier for me to grasp?
* Which course format should I avoid in college? Which should I choose?
* Will I study best alone or in a group?
* How good am I at rote memorization, and what will that mean for the courses I take in college?
* Do I respond better to long-term or short-term goals?
* Do I need all the details to make a decision, or am I a big picture thinker?
* Am I better off collaborating with a team, or should I become a specialist who works alone?
* Can I make quick decisions based on limited information, or do I need to investigate the facts more deeply before I move forward?
* What kinds of careers are good for someone like me, who has high spatial visualization aptitude?
* What's the best way for me to recharge- with friends or by myself?
* Should I create the itinerary for my vacation with friends, or should I let someone else do it?
* Am I better at hand-eye coordination than I thought I was because I never liked sports?
Knowing your aptitudes empowers you to make some of life’s biggest decisions confidently!
