Highlands Student Center
Three Keys to the Right Career - Abilities, Interests, Values
These pages are meant for high school students and their parents. Our aim is to help you through the process by which you find answers to these questions:
What are my innate hard-wired abilities?
Why is it important to know my abilities?
What are my interests and what do they suggest to me?
What are my values and what do they mean to me?
What do my abilities, interests & values tell me?
What are my options on graduation?
What’s the ideal career or occupation for me?
Should I select a trade or apply for college?
If a trade, which trade?
If a college, which college?
How do I get accepted by the college I chose?
The Highlands Company has designed a series of assessments to supply the answers.
These assessments are:
> The Highlands Ability Battery an online assessment of natural abilities.
> The Highlands Interest Survey an online assessment of your interests and the
impact of these interests on your job choice and career.
> The Highlands Values Sort an online assessment of your values and how they
will influence your work life.
An assessment of your natural abilities will tell you what jobs you will perform well.
An apprasial of your interests will tell you what jobs you will enjoy.
A review of your values will tell you what jobs will give you a sense of pride.
