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 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.
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 am so glad I found you and your company. I have been searching for assessments that were easy to administer, had a holistic component, and gave a mixture of practical, concrete suggestions along with big-picture perspective. SkillScan is exactly what I’ve been looking for.
I definitely liked it (Advance Pack). But then again I really like grouping and categorizing. I personally found that it helped me in the following ways:
- Understand specifically where my strengths lie (in language I can use throughout the recruiting process)
- See how those individual skills were related (i.e., many analytical)
- Understand what I like to do and what I don't like to do (really helpful as look at job descriptions)
Thanks again for all your help - it really has helped me a lot!
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.
