The assessment will assist in matching your aptitudes and interests to the best
suitable employer. Upon completion, then your aptitudes and interests are matched
with a local company’s hiring needs. You will interview as you would for any job

employer you’re the right person to hire because your aptitude is your inherent
capacity, talent or ability to do the job. If your interest results say you’re interested
in doing a certain job, just imagine going to work in that job for which you’re
suited, have interest in and the employer will train you to obtain the actual skills
his or her company needs.
