Harrison Career Assessment is a powerful online tool, built on research specifically related to job performance. The assessment provides a career development guide and career comparison report that identifies the greatest strengths rated according to job satisfaction and enjoyment.

The Harrison Assessment will take your answers and compare them to the criteria of hundreds of job titles, including over 500 Australian apprenticeships and traineeships.
There is no time limit, but it will generally take about 20–40 minutes to complete the questionnaire.
You may not have even heard of some of these job choices before, but now you’ll be able to find out more about them with this opportunity.
When you are ready to take the questionnaire, here are some tips:
Just be yourself – there are no right or wrong answers.
Think about what you like to do most – not just in class, but in other parts of your life, such as sports, what you do for fun and your outside interests.
Fill out the whole questionnaire at one time and without any input from others. Input from other people may affect the results negatively.
Make sure you don’t do anything else when you take it. That means no phone, texting, surfing, and note-taking. Just focus and get through it.
Statements in the questionnaire may be repeated. This can be irritating, but it is done for good reason and ensures consistency; if you are inconsistent, the system will not score your results and you will be instructed to take it again.
If you repeat the assessment you will discover the questions are randomised to maintain the integrity and validity of the assessment tool.
The Harrison Career Assessment tool is part of our Gateway Services which is an Australian Government initiative.
Gateway services are customised pre-commencement services designed to screen, stream and match apprentices (and apprenticeships) and employers.
Brendan McConnell approached UMR Engines looking for an apprenticeship as an automotive mechanic. Although he had no previous industry experience, after taking the Harrison Career Assessment UMR Engines were willing to give him a chance.
“The boss took me around the workshop and then asked me to do the assessment. It took me about half an hour.
The blokes I work with help me along the way and it gives me great satisfaction that I’m able to help the customers”.
