During a commencement speech at Stanford University in 2006, Steve Jobs told the graduating class to “find what you love, and love what you do” and that “it is a continual discovery process”. It is the same for career planning. Your job search process begins with knowing your interests, passion, strengths and even your weaknesses. The earlier you know more about yourself, the easier it is to begin this process.

Motivational Appraisal of Personal Potential (MAPP)

MAPP™ (Motivational Appraisal of Personal Potential) is a vocational assessment instrument used in career guidance and coaching. It was first developed in 1955 to match people to the right job. Much of its development was based on the Kuder Preference Record, a standard reference in psychology for vocational assessment. Dramatic results were immediately evident in selection, training, performance and safety. It was then further refined to eliminate gender bias, and also to specifically look at job matching in working adults, as well as students about to embark on their first career.
