Career Direct Service
This service is anchored by a proprietary
Career Direct service
tool that provides students with insights in four critical areas:
- personality - your temperament and how you are "hard-wired"
- interests - what topics and fields you enjoy the most
- skills - what you naturally excel at
- values - the core beliefs most important to you
It's always amazing to me that a questionaire that only takes about 20-40 minutes to complete can be packed with so much rich insights. However, 10 years of research and a lot of validity studies have proven the Career Direct instrument to be helpful to thousands of people.
Remember, this is not about you finding a field that is the "hot" field to get into. I find these annual rankings and listings unduly influence students to choose career fields that are just not the right fit for them.
Also, I spent a fair amount of time in my past career as an HR Director trying to help people who found themselves in the wrong type of work. Sometimes this was after many years of expensive education and job experience.
Rather, Career Direct is an accurate indicator of what are the most likely fields of work that have the highest degree of fit to the type of person you naturally are.
This tool is just one way to give you helpful feedback as a student what kinds of work are most suitable to you BEFORE you make key decisions such as your major or college choice.
