An award for the quintessential college, career, and job sites.

This site offers a number of assessments to guide career planning and especially to help improve one’s current job situation. Assessments include Improve Your Boss, Improve Your Company, The PSI Personality Style Indicator, The JSI Job Style Indicator, and Improve Your JobFit.
The site describes one of our favorites, the PSI, this way: “Understanding our own personal styles and traits (and ideally those of the people we work closely with and for), we have an opportunity to be more successful, higher performing and more satisfied with our jobs and work environment. Taking the Personal Style Indicator assessment and asking all those with whom you work closely to take it, as well, will give you a leg up on improving your working communications and relationships and, therefore (and quite naturally), both your individual and group performance.”
Some of the site’s assessments are free; others offer a free summary report with a fee for a more detailed report; still others are fee-based. The JSI and PSI can be taken together.
