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 love how the Career Driver results compliment the Myers Briggs Type Indicator and Strong Interest Inventory results with my clients who are exploring career options. Career Driver assessment results have provided my clients with a vocabulary to use in resumes and interviewing, uncovering skills they would not have described if they had not taken this assessment.
I administered Skill Scan to my class of sophomore plastics engineering students today. The students loved it! One said he didn't realize he had so many skills. Another said he now had words to use to describe his experience when introducing himself to someone professionally. Even those who had a lot of skills yet to develop were excited to record them all in one place. It was a great confidence booster!
I was delighted to recently give a SkillScan workshop at our office. We help unemployed and underemployed folks prepare for their job search. It was very easy to administer and I found it to be a useful tool to help articulate "transferable" skills. I was amazed to see levels of confidence and self esteem rise as we translated their past experiences into marketable skill sets. It served as a wonderful reminder to our clients that their skills are directly applicable to other jobs and in different industries.
The SkillScan assessment helped me categorize my skills and the career fields I can further investigate. It was nice to see a list of my strength so I could get a big picture of what I am interested in or good at. Also, I thought it was nice that the SkillScan assessment helped me explore things I want to improve. This assessment was a good chance to explore my strength/talent or weaknesses as I develop my career goal.
