The Benefits Of Career Assessments To Your Job Search
Career assessments can be highly effective to your job search if leveraged correctly. Job seekers and career changers can benefit from taking career assessment such as the Myers-Brigg Type Indicator (MBTI) and Strong Interest Inventory (Strong) to learn more about the way they work as well as where their true strengths lie. Many job seekers struggle trying to decide what they really want to do with their careers. This makes it extremely difficult to choose the right career path. Here are some uncertainties that career assessments could help you figure out:
- What occupations best fit my skills, knowledge and interests?
- What is my idyllic work environment?
- What gets me motivated?
- What gives me a sense of value?
- What is my conflict resolution style?
- How do I communicate with others?
- What are my values and standards?
- What are my strengths and weaknesses?
- What marketable skills do I have?
- What are my interests and passion?
Assessments can provide transparency, career options, and self-awareness. MBTI is a personality assessment, and Strong is a skills assessment. Having a comprehensive report of both can help you make well-informed decisions.
Myers Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI) is one of the most well-respected and commonly used personality type assessment tools globally. Based on research by psychologist Carl Jung, MBTI is an easy to understand set of ideas which helps people build strong relationships at home and in the workplace. It helps us learn how we operate as individuals, develop under-utilized aspects of ourselves, and learn about different types of people we encounter.
The Strong Interest Inventory assessment is one of the world’s most widely respected and frequently used career planning tools. It helps job seekers make fulfilling career choices and helps career coaches guide clients through a process of comparing results with those of people similar to them who have already found satisfying careers. It also generates a list of the top occupations job seekers are most likely to find rewarding. Don’t delay. Contact us.
