O-NET is a well established assessment. It is supported by lots of data. However, it seems to be a bit overly-simplistic. The assessment asks a lot of "like / dislike" questions. However, it does not really seem to address a persons values or the environments in which these jobs take place.

The Occupational Information Network (O*NET) is a database of occupational requirements and worker attributes. It describes occupations in terms of the skills and knowledge required, how the work is performed, and typical work settings. It can be used by businesses, educators, job seekers, human resources professionals, and the publicly funded Workforce Investment System to help meet the talent needs of our competitive global economy. O*NET information helps support the creation of industry competency models. {From:}
