Most people who engage in the process end up with a pretty good idea of the next step. If they are going to university or a university of technology, they are usually confident of the faculty or department for which they are applying. Others will be pointed to training facilities offering the kind of skills development that they seek which they then visit in order to make a more informed choice.
The fact that the practice has been operating for fifteen years and is always fully booked despite doing no advertising at all beside word of mouth attests to the fact that most of the clients leave the process satisfied enough to tell others about their experience.

Psychometricsis the field of study concerned with the theory and technique of educational and psychological measurement, which includes the measurement of knowledge, abilities, attitudes, and personality traits. The field is primarily concerned with the study of measurement instruments such as questionnaires and tests.
Basically this means that the client fills in a variety of self-report questionnaires or undergoes timed tests that measure strengths of aptitude in a selection of fields in order to obtain more objective information as part of the whole career assessment process.
Psychometric tests should never be used in isolation but should be both administered and interpreted by a trained professional as part of a holistic career development experience.
