    What people are saying about the SDS:

    “Excellent tool! I used it for 11 years while I was a career counselor. It’s also very reliable with younger students and there is a version for older adults returning to school or considering a career change.”

    “The SDS is a helpful tool for people unsure where to begin as they consider life beyond high school. 

    In my early days as a career coach, this assessment was helpful with my clients in high school and early college years. 

    Learn as much about yourself early on and continue to do so; it is a good habit to establish. Explore, learn, and try out opportunities you never did before. Surprise yourself. 

    All you need to know is who you are and what you can accomplish.”
