NEDC and the Business Advisory Council are working together to use this tool to help connect students in the appropriate career path according to their interests and aptitude.
Interests alone steer students to more social and artistic careers – makes sense, that is what students are interested in (sports, music, friends and school). When we take aptitudes into account, we see that there is a more reasonable recommendation of careers. We see there are still students who are directed to social and artistic careers (but they have the talent for it). Many more are directed to technical careers that align with their natural talents.
