Career Guidance

Our premiere career assessment package is the COPSystem career guidance program, which consists of the Career Occupational Preference System Interest Inventory (COPS), the Career Ability Placement Survey (CAPS), and the Career Orientation Placement and Evaluation Survey (COPES).

A defining feature of this program is the unique way in which an individual's occupational interests, abilities and work values are displayed together in a single concise Comprehensive Career Guide. A complete package is available at low cost combining all three assessments and is available in a web-based or paper pencil based format. Assessment results are organized into eight major career clusters.These areas are grouped into Professional and Skilled level occupations and matched to job titles with the highest degree of compatibility to promote individualized career exploration.
