How does YouScience find a match between my Aptitudes and Careers?

YouScience suggests careers based on the best fit between your aptitudes and the aptitudes important for that career, with the aptitudes that are most important for success in that career taken into consideration.

To determine which aptitudes are most important for each career, we partnered with experts in job performance and utilized the U.S. Department of Labor, Employment & Training Administration’s O*NET Career Database. What are the common tasks within each career path? What do people do each day? What are characteristics of successful people in this career? Combining several different sources of information, we translated the tasks or requirements of each career into an aptitude profile that reflects a successful person in that career. This aptitude profile is then matched against a student’s aptitude profile to suggest best-fit careers where the student will likely be most successful.
