Career assessments are an important and often overlooked step in the career planning process. Knowing who you are as a person can help you evaluate your career options, make decisions, develop an effective resume and prepare for interviews. At The Wright Career Solution we work with you to administer and interpret various assessments so that you have the information you need to manage your career. Some assessment tools used include:
The 360Reach Survey, designed by William Arruda for his company, Reach360, is the world’s first and leading personal branding survey.
360Reach enables you to gather external feedback related to your brand attributes (personality characteristics), skills, leadership competencies, strengths, weaknesses and team roles. The process begins with a self-survey and is followed by requesting feedback from others so you can compare how you view yourself with how you are currently perceived by others. You get valuable insights into the brand called YOU!
As a Certified 360 Reach Brand Analyst, I am able to help you gain valuable insights into your Personal Brand.
The DISC assessment is widely used in companies, and among HR professionals and career coaches. It helps you to better understand your behavioural style in the workplace, your ideal work environment and how you are perceived by others.
Do I need a career assessment?
Career assessments may be right for you if you answer “Yes” to any of the following questions:
Would you like to increase your self-awareness?
Do you want assistance identifying your key strengths, skills and motivators?
Do you want to learn more about your problem solving and conflict management style?
Would you like to build your communication and stress management skills?
Career assessments can help you:
- Identify your values, interests, skills, knowledge and personal qualities – your attributes
- Highlight your key selling points – to use in career decision making, resume writing and interview preparation
- Manage your career, capitalizing on your strengths
- Pinpoint areas you may need to develop further
- Build your career portfolio
Note: Career assessments are helpful in making career decisions; however, they’re only one piece of the puzzle. The results of any one assessment must be considered along with your “gut feeling” about your career. For example, consider asking yourself the following questions: “What do I enjoy doing?” “What skills do I have? What other realistic career options could I explore?” “What skills do I have that might make self-employment an option?”
