Self-Evaluation & Assessment
The first step in any career development process is self-evaluation. By understanding your skills, interests and values, you can begin to brainstorm possible job targets that you may want to pursue. Questrom offers several tools that will aid self-assessment including our Career Kick-Off Questionnaire and Clifton Strengths Finder. We encourage you to discuss your self-evaluation with your assigned Career Coach during a coaching appointment.
Career Kick-Off Questionnaire
Some people know exactly what kind of career they want to go for, some have vague ideas about it and others don’t know at all what matches best with their interests, values and skills.
Our Career Kick-off Questionnaire can help you to start thinking about yourself, get prepared for the assessments and is a great resource for the first meeting with your Career Coach.
Clifton Strengths Finder
Well, Clifton Strengths Finder is here to help!
You will take an online assessment, which takes about 20 minutes. Upon completion of the assessment, you are given a list of your 5 dominant Strengths in the order of their prominence. There are 34 strengths possible, so the likelihood of having the exact same strengths as another person is 1 in 275,000!
Because this assessment is so unique to you, you can use it in networking, interviewing and even making friends. American employers value your individual contribution, and want to know how you are uniquely qualified for a position. Identifying your strengths and articulating how you can bring value to the team/company through those strengths will allow you to competitively position yourself in the American job market.
