Reveal how and where students will be most successful.

Quote Carl Jung

The TruTalent™ Personality assessment, formerly known as Do What You Are®, is part of the TruTalent suite and has been used by millions of college students around the world to help them better understand themselves and others. TruTalent Personality helps students make more informed decisions about their future employment.

People are happiest and most successful in work that allows them to use their greatest gifts, and personality is the best way to determine what those gifts are. Personality is the innate way people naturally see the world and make decisions. Unlike values, skills and interests, which can change as we age, personality remains constant throughout a person’s life and contains a set of basic drives and motivations that can be instrumental in selecting a career.

For an even greater understanding of each student, TruTalent Personality works together with TruTalent Skills and TruTalent Intelligences to reveal different aspects of an individual’s talents, gifts and preferences, as well as leading to the best possible career matches using Human eSources Career Matching Technology™.
