Highlands Ability Battery TestingThe Highlands Ability Battery (HAB), the gold-standard among career assessments, is a career assessment that objectively measures your aptitudes or natural abilities. Unlike skills interests, goals, and values, natural abilities remain constant throughout one’s lifetime. Scientists have determined that a child’s natural abilities mature and are ready to be tested at any time after the age of about fourteen. The sooner after that age you are tested, the sooner you can take advantage of the insights the test provides into good study and learning habits, as well as into the selection of the right college and career. The HAB can help you discover concrete evidence of things you're good at, career options that align with your abilities, and new language to use when talking about your gifts. Being able to articulate your strengths and weaknesses is crucial when interviewing for a job, considering new responsibilities, a promotion, or a job change. Discovering one’s natural abilities is a life-changing experience that will assist you in making sound career decisions throughout your lifetime.Karen Davis | Highlands Certified Consultant Davis Career Consulting 316.683.2078 316.210.9585-cell www.daviscareerconsulting.com daviscareerconsulting@gmail.com
