How is Profile.Center different from other career placement tests, career aptitude tests, etc.?
Most career tests use something called Holland Codes to measure your interests and match you to a small set of generic careers like Nurse, Firefighter, or teacher. The problem with that approach is that interests are only one measure of compatibility. You might be interested in being an Investment Banker, but what if you don't like long hours or sitting down a lot? You might like being a teacher, but what if you care about opportunities for career advancement?
