Career Values - How to Score
Each category has a question number - write the score you marked for the question number and total the lines.
A Value is something that is important to you. The higher the score, the more a particular value means to you. Your opinions may differ as you get older or when circumstances in your life change. If Money was a higher value for you than People, it does not necessarily mean that you do not care about People. It just means that at this point in your life Money is very important to you.
