Does anyone know of a website that will help someone determine their best career choice? One that maybe offers an aptitude test to help you find what you would enjoy or be good at?

If you are in high school, don't most school offer these tests to junior/seniors. I know they used to. My sister always wanted to be a beautician, she could do wonders with her hair when she was in middle school. In high school her class was given some kind of aptitude test that determined she would be bored to death working as a beautician, but when she graduated she went ahead and attended beauty school and says she didn't regret becoming a beautician in the entire 30 years that she worked at it. However, the people I know get a job, in order to have a job and make the best of the situation. Personally I have only ever known two people besides my sister who liked their job and one was a law officer and the other a florist, but she quit that because she didn't earn enough to suit her tastes, and has complained about the same thing in every job she has ever had. Basically it is a matter of making the best of the situation.
Don't be discouraged! Try googling "free career aptitude tests". Use it as a tool to see what kinds of jobs you might be interested in. Most students don't have a real idea of what kinds of jobs are available so it can't hurt to look around, right?
What about trying some volunteer work for differnt types of organizations- schools, nursing homes, animal shelters, hospitals, etc? You may find something you love and can turn into a career.
