Vocational assessments

Often it's hard to know what you are really suited to. For example, where your skills lie, or what you value in work. That's why Career Discovery often uses Vocational Assessments.

Vocational Assessments are useful tools for discovering your personality, interests, skills and work values. These tools provide a framework for dialogue with you, increase your clarity and confidence, stimulate new personal insights, reduce risk in decision-making and help you understand past work behaviours.

At Career Discovery I use assessments developed for Australians by Australia's leading career expert - Dr Richard Pryor of the University of Sydney. They are based on well-established and respected psychological theories of career choice and development. I also use card sorts and exercises developed by Paul Stevens of Worklife, Australia's leading career development company.

The assessments are fun and easy and help you make good choices. What's more, they don't cost the earth.

Assessments, however, can never tell the whole story about you. That's why discussing the outcomes with an experienced career counsellor is an essential part of the assessment process. In discussion with you, I integrate the assessments with a whole person understanding of who you are and your individual needs.

Not everybody, though, needs to do assessments. We will only use them where appropriate, after consideration of your particular needs.
