Profiling for Success

DCU Careers Service provides a range of online assessments (psychometric tests) called Profiling for Success, which measure the areas of aptitude and ability, personality, motivation and career interests. Research demonstrates that those with high self-knowledge and self-awareness are: more fulfilled, creative and competent, and are better communicators. They perform better at work and are more promotable and more effective leaders at profitable companies. Having a clear and accurate perception of who you are - including strengths, capabilities, character, feelings, and motivation - is a great foundation for development and can help you to explore career areas. Aptitude and ability tests are frequently used by employers as part of their assessment processes. Familiarity and practice in taking timed tests can help you perform with consistency when it counts. The tests listed below are available on the Team Focus platform.
