"Why I love SkillScan":

Simply put, it works every time with any population, and everybody always loves it! Most of my clients are people who have physical and/or mental disabilities, and SkillScan is a great equalizer. Everybody feels empowered by it because, sometimes for the very first time, they recognize that they have skills, and, not only that, they now have a vocabulary to talk about what they are good at and enjoy doing. I love the way it engages people in the career exploration process, particularly my clients, who are so used to having their barriers to employment addressed first. I see them begin to think of themselves in new ways. SkillScan allows me to gain useful insight into my clients, and it is a powerful facilitator that allows me to "meet my clients where they are".

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!
