Few decisions in life are as important as the choice of a career and every possible step should be taken to assess those factors that can predict career success. It has been shown that interests and self-estimates of ability are very helpful in making the right career decisions. The Maree Career Matrix (MCM) was developed to measure individuals’ attraction to various job categories by asking them to rate their interest and skill levels in 152 different occupations. The individual’s total scores (interest and confidence) are then combined on 19 career categories and represented on the MCM, which comprises four quadrants, namely: ‘Go for it’, ‘Bottom of the pile’, ’Use it, don’t lose it’, or ‘Upskill yourself’, to provide them with insight into possible career paths. The solution includes action steps that can be taken en route to making a career choice.
