Students interested in the Armed Forces may be interested in taking the ASVAB (Armed Services Vocational Aptitude Battery). This is a free career assessment that gives you insights into your aptitudes. Those who are interested may contact Steven Nimmo (steven.nimmo AT usarec.army DOT mil / 816-729-2459) for details on setting up a date to take the test. Tests are administered Mon-Thurs from 2-5PM. A driver's license and one additional form of government issued ID (Social Security card, passport) is required. Students must first fill out the appropriate forms at the recruiting station located on 8549 N Church Rd, Kansas City, MO before taking the actual test near Zona Rosa. Students not interested in the Armed Forces still may gain helpful potential career ideas by taking the test. More information can be found online here.
