How to Read the Career Suggestions Page

Tracy Stegall April 19, 2024

The IndigoPathway Career Suggestions provides a list of best-fit careers based on your results. This list is not all-inclusive but is intended to be a starting point to explore different industries and career options.

Please note that if you don’t see a career you are interested in, it doesn’t mean you shouldn’t pursue it. Once you have a better understanding of yourself you can determine what is a good fit for you!
