LU Career Zone Know Yourself

Know yourself

Looking for the ideal job? Make sure you know yourself!

When looking for a job that suits you, it’s important to know the following about yourself: 

  • What are your best qualities?
  • What are you good at?
  • What do you enjoy doing?
  • What do you find important in life and in your future career?

Knowing yourself well will enable you to focus your search better and make the right choices in terms of the ideal job. You’ll also be able to present yourself better to prospective employers during job interviews.

Taking tests allows you to analyse yourself and create a sort of ‘self-portrait’, known as your personal profile. In the LU Career Zone you can find a number of professional tests (123test), which produce extensive reports that allow you to map out your personal profile. 

To take these tests you’ll need to log in with your ULCN account. This also allows you to save your test results and notes.
