Testimonials

Lynn Junyan Li, MBA Student, The Hong Kong University of Science and Technology

Career Driver Online is an excellent tool that helped me to carefully think about my skills and strengths and career preferences. The cards look very user-friendly. I enjoyed the experience of going through the assessment. The scanning process is a great initial step for serious self-improvement. The report gave me a good guideline for further self- improvement.

Rita Horn, Principal at Career Latitudes

Career Driver Online provides a wealth of information and resources which I really think make this almost a "one stop shop" assessment. Including cursory "interest," "values" and "personality" assessments is great for folks eager to get going and have some ideas of directions to pursue. There's a wealth of information for follow-up and discussion, so that anyone about to "launch" and not sure of what to do next has validation and support for taking next steps.

Barbara Gronsky, Ph.D., Principal at Delaware Valley Career Solutions

I found Career Driver Online to be a very comprehensive tool with lots of information:
- The use of weighting and prioritization helps users to discriminate among all the skills they are interested in. This can be extremely helpful for those individuals whose interests are all over the place.
- The Side Trips and Resources section is great.

Haas MBA Student

I learned about my transferable skills from taking the Online Assessment 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.

As a loyal customer of SkillScan for over a decade, I find that the new Advance Pack organizes the skill clusters for greater understanding and connection to competency models and job descriptions. I have already incorporated the new Advance Pack into all my corporate workshops and individual coaching settings. Thank you for the improvements on an already outstanding career tool.

Amy Mazur, Career Development Specialist

Boston, MA

I have used the original SkillScan Professional Pack for many years with many clients, and although I have always felt that the SkillScan was a valuable tool for my clients, I now see even more positive results with the SkillScan Advance Pack. Clients find the tool and the supplementary materials incredibly valuable in clarifying direction and identifying skills that they can use with employers to articulate their marketability. There is also an increase in confidence and preparedness. When working with clients, the SkillScan Advance Pack is my tool of choice.

Margo Gilliland, Career Counselor

The new Advance Pack SkillScan is an excellent tool. I have been using it with university students and alumni and have had great feedback. The updated categories make sense to clients and the new cards have a very professional look. I am ordering more to use them in workshops!

Folly Patterson, Associate Director College Career Programs

Wellesley—College Wellesley, MA

I was first introduced to SkillScan (and Lesah in 2002), and discovered both to be irreplaceable resources. I work with students and alumnae, and have found that the SkillScan instrument allows people at any stage of life to identify not only their general skills, but how they fit together as concrete skill sets, and then how to transfer them to possible career paths. Lesah offered unprecedented personal support, as we worked together to see how SkillScan could best be used to meet our specific program's needs. As is true for the second generation of most products, the revisions with the new Advance Pack ensures the terminology and Skill Sets remain relevant to our constantly changing work world, and make the instrument even move comprehensive while being easier to use. Both as a stand-alone assessment tool, or with the resources included in the facilitator's manual that allow it to be used in conjunction with other popular self-assessment tools, SkillScan makes the difference for people planning their options within this skills-based society in which we live.

I've been using the Skillscan assessment tool, cardsort and online versions, for more than 15 years. I was looking forward to the new online version and upon trying Drive, 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. It can be used with a range of clients from college students to professionals in career transition.
