Do you do “aptitude” tests?
No! They are generally pretty outdated in today’s world and sometimes inappropriate for the individual. I use an alternative process which has been designed in line with today’s world of work.
How is the process different from other career guidance?
Rather than using test batteries, I engage with each person in a process over a period of time, depending on the needs of the individual. The process is more personal, creative and interactive and provides insight into the key considerations such as values, personality, interests, natural talents, acquired skills and aspirations. Sometimes, psychometric testing may be appropriate.
Is the process the same for everyone?
No, each person has different needs.
Individual or group?
There are times when it works well to have a small group (min of 3 and max 6) like-minded people together for the process.
How long does it take?
The number of sessions varies according to the needs of the individual.
Both individual and group sessions require the person to do some form of exploration. The individual sessions are designed to suit specific needs.
The sessions for school leavers and first time career seekers are often run during school holidays and then take the form of bi-weekly sessions so that the process is completed within the holiday.
For ladies who wish to re-enter the world of work, sessions are run in the mornings.
For those who have experienced unexpected job loss and those who are wanting to change direction, sessions are run to suit the individual or the small group.
Can people with challenges benefit?
Many people have challenges of different kinds. Sometimes, as a result of an accident or illness, people are confronted with challenges for which they are not prepared. My approach works exceptionally well for people who have specific needs, assisting them towards putting their unique talents to good use in an appropriate career.
How will you benefit from this process?
Once you have been through one of the programs (which we will custom design to suit your needs) you will leave with a clearer understanding of how to create and structure your future career and put your plan into action so that you maximize your potential and attain success.
