The Highland Ability Battery is the gold standard among career assessments and can help you discover your unique pattern of aptitudes. The more knowledge and information you have about yourself, the more effective your decisions will be. The Highlands Ability Battery (HAB) can help you to understand:
The HAB is a four-hour assessment that is taken online (although it doesn't have to be done in one sitting) and results in a 30+ page report that identifies your natural abilities and offers potential career matches for you to explore.
Additional career instruments that we use include the Strong Interest Inventory, which is a valuable assessment tool used to identify your interests and help you see how they relate to different careers and tasks. It is the most widely used career planning instrument by colleges and universities in the world.

These assessment tools will help you learn more about yourself and who you truly are. Everyone is unique and we will work with you individually to make sure you are armed with the knowledge and information you need in order to make the best decisions and discover a career that is a best-fit for you!
