The ESE (Employability Self Evaluation) test is a series of questions that help you to reflect on aspects of your own employability.
Most of the questions are statements which you can rate on a scale of 1-10 depending on how well they describe you.
At the end of the test you will automatically receive a graph showing how you have rated yourself. Feel free to print it off to show to a careers advisor or to use in an employability workshop.
