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.
