Using Career Assessments and Career Counseling Interests Clarification

You’ve got to find what you love. And that is true for your work as it is for your lovers. Your work is going to fill a large part of your life, and the only way to be truly satisfied is to do what you believe is great work. And the only way to do great work is to love what you do. If you haven’t found it yet keep looking. Don’t settle. As with all matters of the heart, you’ll know when you find it. And, like any great relationship, it just gets better and better as the years roll on. So keep looking until you find it. Don’t settle.

Career Assessments stimulate introspection and reflection on what truly interests and stimulates you.

Myers-Briggs Type Indicator, MBTI, is a widely used indicator of your interests, personality and your “behavioral preferences.”  How you’re wired – how you behave/perform naturally – what tasks/functions come naturally and are enjoyable, not work.

Four scales of behavior are accurately measured through your MBTI answers:
  • Where do you get your energy?
  • How do you take in information or your natural method of learning?
  • What comes naturally in your decision-making?
  • What is your method of living your life or getting things done?

strong-mbtiGordon offers an expert interpretation of the results of your MBTI to reidentify with the true you.  The results of the questionnaire give insights into your behavioral preference – what’s natural for you and what career fields match your answers.

Hundreds of clients have observed, “I wish I had taken this assessment earlier in my career!”

Strong Interests Inventory, SII, asks 300 questions on what you enjoy, like, and what interests you.

The results give insights into your “work personality”, and introduce career fields that match your answers.  Your answers are compared to a data-base of people in hundreds of career fields who enjoy their careers who also took the SII.  The results give insights into the likelihood that you would enjoy that career.

Gordon offers expert interpretation of your SII results, and multiple “action steps” you can take to further benefit from your results.

The MBTI and the SII, interpreted by Gordon, gives the client confidence on clarifying a satisfying:

-Lifestyle

-Next job
