Do you know what you want to do for a living? Do you know what your strengths are? The University of Toronto has put together a self-assessment tool to help you figure that out.
The Online Self-Assessment package covers 4 areas in an attempt to find the best career to fit who you are.

It is also recommended to complete the assessment survey of all four areas in one sitting if possible.
