DECIDING ON A CAREER
Before students can choose the right career, they first must learn about themselves. In addition to exposing students to different professions through career touches and providing them with chance to ask questions to make better decision, CSAT utilizes several Career Assessment tools designed to help our students understand how their personal attributes will impact them in different career options and work environments. These assessments look at student's vaues, interest, soft skills and aptitudes, in combination with their personality types, in order to determine what occupations are a good fit, and what careers may be completely inappropriate.
