Taking this self-assessment will help you determine whether a job in child protective services is right for you and, if so, if you are better suited for a specific type of job. Its purpose is to see if you are likely to remain employed in child welfare. An honest self-assessment can help you decide if working in child welfare is a good fit for you.
When rating each item, reflect on your own personal characteristics and professional career goals. Be as honest as you can in your ratings of each item. Use a pencil or pen and paper and record your rating for each item. There are no right or wrong ratings. When you are done, add up your ratings, then compare your score to the ranges at the end of the self-assessment. If you come in to interview for a job, please bring in your results for discussion.
