Gina Snyder, Career Counselor

Saint Mary's College of California—Moraga, CA

SkillScan is one of the most useful assessments that we use. It helps build self-esteem by acknowledging that students already have many skills. We use it throughout their career decision making years from choosing a major to getting internships to building a resume and cover letter and in preparing for interviews. I also use SkillScan in teaching high school counselors and college admissions advisors at UC Berkeley Extension. I show them a variety of ways they can use the assessment to help students identify their strengths for building self-knowledge and in targeting appropriate college majors and career options. I love the hands-on, tactile nature of the cards.

I really liked using Skillscan’s Career Driver Online. I liked how the system grouped skills and made career and class suggestions based on those skills. I took my students to the computer lab to take the assessment and it was helpful to work in a group because one student’s question helped other students. My students found it easy to use. During my student’s final presentation on their career action plan, they all talked about the Career Driver’s recommendations for their skills and how it would fit into to the job they wanted.
