Teens can take career aptitude tests online, at school or at their city or county job centers. Whereas basic tests are free of charge, the most reliable tests are fee-based.
A number of university and career websites offer free career aptitude tests teens can take online. These sites match test answers to job databases, such as the one maintained by the U.S. Department of Labor. High schools and job centers offer similar tests that teens can take on site.
Teens interested in deeper, more accurate analysis should consider the MAPP test, which is the gold-standard career aptitude assessment. Although there's a fee for taking it, MAPP returns the most scientifically sound career suggestions, and it's the assessment employers typically use.
