Testimonials

Toula Scordilis

I benefited greatly from taking the Self-directed Tutorial for the Career Driver and Express Certification program (CDEC). I learn best when I can pause the recording to take hand-written notes. Your webinars were very helpful and I'm excited to apply all that I learned.

Mike Miller, Career Consultant

The information generated by SkillScan Express is presented in an attractive, tight, readable, logically flowing and meaningful way. I feel it's easy for both the counselor and client to grasp the results and apply the information. The results can be seen in almost one glance and can easily refer back to other parts of the report. I believe for the digital generation, SkillScan Express may be more to their liking.

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.

Jane McHale, Leadership Coach at Bright Horizons

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.

Jack Harari, Associate Director of Career Services and Industry Partnerships at Benjamin Franklin Institute of Technology

I have administered SkillScan primarily to high school and college students. In the time that it normally takes a student to attend a lecture, a student can instead walk away from a SkillScan session with an understanding of his or her primary skill sets and the careers that utilize those skills. There is a strong emphasis on skill development and transferable skills which helps prepare students for today's competitive market place. I recommend this tool without reservation.

Kimberly Bilawchuk, Part-time Career Counselor/Adjunct Faculty at UMass Lowell

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!

Craig Constantinos, Transition Advisor at Independent Living Experience Colorado Springs, Colorado Area

Using the Advance Pack with students has been extremely effective. Helping students to look at what tasks they would actually be doing in a career has shown them the difference between occupations that they like the idea of versus occupations that truly reflect their interests and giftings. I have found SkillScan to be my most efficient assessment tool, giving the student a wealth of information in a short amount of time. Lesah has placed a number of valuable resources on the website, as well.

Susan Chritton, Senior Content Expert, Identity at MyPath101

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

Kevin Klotz, IT Professional

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.

Michael Miller, Ph.D, Career Counselor in Private Practice, Ithaca, NY

SkillScan is deceptively simple and transparent, yet profoundly useful. Asking clients to sort and rank their skills, together with clustering them into occupationally meaningful patterns, provide them positive, hopeful insights, helps to clarify their core career identity and builds confidence and self-esteem--all necessary to maintain an effective career development program in the face of inevitable challenges.

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! "
