Career Assessment Tools

Career assessment tests and tools are an integral part of defining one's ideal career and the key ingredients needed to reach one's career goals. A good assessment test, in addition to providing you with "3rd person analysis", also provides a written synopsis detailing your career-related strengths, key skills, and personality attributes. It helps one to know thyself which is the first step in deciding on any type of career path, career change, or work setting.

An assessment test will also help you clarify such areas as what type of working environment you are best suited for, motivational factors, coachability and collaboration, what size company, the percentage of group work vs. solo work, and how much freedom you need. It will provide another perspective in addition to your own and scientifically quantify your strengths, attributes and interests. The key to using an assessment test is to look for the similarities regarding your test results as they relate to your key skills, traits and interests in comparison to other career-related exercises and discussions.

Ascend Career and Life Strategies recommends the following career assessment tools:

  1. CenterMark- Evaluation and identification of your key work related personality traits that correspond to ideal career choices, performance improvement, and opportunities for growth.
  2. MatchPoint- Determination of vocational interests across multiple sectors and business units (Example: Sales, Operations, Marketing, R&D, Human Resources, etc.) resulting in the recommendation of specific career choices.
  3. ValueBase- Values clarification and determination of your key career ingredients.  Criteria that must be present in your next position in order for you to feel fulfilled, energized, and engaged.

CenterMark (Myers-Briggs)

Understanding ourselves and others better is one of the keys to successful career development. The more you understand about yourself, the better your decisions will be and the more effectively you will be able to implement those decisions. Your personality preferences can help you define your ideal career and then how to improve your chances for success when making a career transition or change.

CenterMark is an assessment based on the research of Myers-Briggs. It has a comprehensive database for each of the 16 types and emphasizes twelve areas of success in one's worklife, including:

Unique Characteristics Approaches to Problem Solving and Decision Making
Contributions to the Organization Conflict Resolution
Successful Careers Motivators
Management Style On a Team
Communication Style Change Management
Learning Style Opportunities for Growth

Taking the CenterMark inventory and receiving professional feedback will help you identify your unique gifts. The information enhances your understanding of yourself, your motivations, your natural strengths (when your preferences are developed) and your potential areas for growth. It will also help you appreciate people different from you. Understanding your MBTI is self-affirming and encourages cooperation with others.

MatchPoint

One of the most important challenges facing individuals today is finding the type of work that will maximize their career satisfaction and productivity. Career satisfaction has been related to satisfaction with life in general, the turnover rate within the organization, and productivity.
