SkillScan has been one of my favorite career assessment instruments for 25 years; it is a timeless tool which clients frequently refer to over time as they focus on marketing their transferable skills throughout their careers. As a career management professional, I have used SkillScan successfully in multiple venues, including colleges and universities, outplacement venues, trainings, and my private career counseling practice to assist a variety of clients and business professionals. The newest version brings back the best of the original, and adds new features which bring a clearer focus to the results - key transferable skills which often lead to significant career insights - for users.

I have found SkillScan to be extremely effective in assisting individuals and groups in identifying, clarifying, and prioritizing work skills and interests. Participants very much enjoy the combination of initial tactile intuitive choices and prioritization followed by the presentation of a focused Skill Profile and Skill Wheel containing transferable skills in helpful cluster patterns. SkillScan is particularly effective because of its User's Manual rich with practical, useful resources. The newly revised manual on CD very conveniently allows for easy downloading of formatted exercise handouts and materials, in addition to original templates.

I have used the SkillScan cards and profile for years and moved to the online version as soon as it was released for ease of use and detail of results. Most recently, I switched to the new version "Drive". I think it's 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 transfer.
