SkillScan is the best tool on the market to take a close look at the skills you have to offer an employer, your community service, or the skills you take into self-employment. I love that it can be used with other self-assessments to strengthen and enhance your self-knowledge
"I use the Career Driver Online often with my students and alumni who have difficulty defining their skills and seeing how these skills might match up with careers and majors. I find this to be a great tool in helping my clients along their career development path and it fits in well their online learning styles too!"
I learned about Career Driver Online in a Find Your Focus workshop at Haas. The workshop provided a lot of assessment tools and promoted deep thought about career choices. The handouts helped organize and pull everything together.
The online assessment was simple and easy to use and navigate. It definitely put my strengths and weaknesses in perspective for me. I know what I need to and can work on in order to expand my horizons.
I've been using the Skillscan assessment tool, cardsort and online versions, for more than 10 years. I was looking forward to the new online version and upon trying the Career Driver Online, I was impressed with the enhancements. The interface is very appealing. The instructions were easy to follow, and the personalized report is comprehensive. It's a great resource for career counselors to use with clients as a foundation for generating career options, writing a resume, and preparing for interviews.
I have used the Advanced Pack Skill Scan cards and profile for years and finally officially switched to the Career Driver on line version. I think its great - easy to comprehend, very professionally presented and the occupations are much more interesting than the Strong or the Holland Occupations. Having them broken down into industry is so helpful showing a client how many industries their skills can be transferred. I use it both for internal and external career coaching and training.
This October (2011) I attended Lesah Beckhusen’s, 3 hour presentation on , “Integrating Results into Core Career Themes” in Portland, Oregon. The content she shared was superb and offered me many new insights and applications into the use of SkillScan with students and clients. The presentation was so compelling, interactive and useful to career professionals that the three hours passed in what seemed like the blink of an eye. If you have the opportunity to attend one of Lesah’s presentations I have three words for you: Don’t miss it! "
