Any career assessment and guidance system should have the following features:a non- proprietary approach, accuracy and standardized scales. Another critical requirement is that the system should base its recommendation on data collected from students and industry professionals. And finally, the career taxonomies (number of careers recommended) used should be comprehensive, complete and based on some maintained career standards.
