We hope you have found the Career Key website helpful. Counselors praise it. More than 5,000 students and adults use it daily. Visitors appreciate its value . . . professional career guidance that is a free public service, without ads. Taking other professional personality tests on the Internet can cost up to $80. The ePublications are reasonably priced. Unlike other ebooks, they are not encrypted with a secret code. You can print whatever personal copy you buy. And, ours are not locked to your computer when you download them. So if you change computers, you can still use them. We trust that you will not make unauthorized copies. Taken together, this means that Career Key visitors -- especially students, the unemployed, and people on low incomes -- have exceptional access to quality career guidance. You can help. Respect our copyrights. Making unauthorized copies or sending them to others is illegal and unethical; it harms us. Your purchases also help. They help defray the thousands of dollars spent each year to develop and maintain the Career Key website and allow us to continue to update the Career Key as necessary.
