Enhance your prospects and improve your employability with a personalised career development report and assessment.
Improve Your Prospects and Enhance Your Employability with a Personalised Career Development Report
Many organisations now view a person’s ‘career’ as being something for which the individual is responsible and seek evidence that the individual is prepared to honestly identify their own development needs and take responsibility for it, rather than relying on their employer to do it for them.
Whether for personal development, or in preparation for job hunting, a Career Development Report is an affordable and easy way for private individuals to obtain a professionally produced personal Career/Professional Development assessment. Having knowledge of your own detailed personality profile is also very useful when being asked to identify your own strengths and weaknesses during interview.
The Career Development Report, as used by our own Psychologists with our commercial clients, uses the results from an on line personality questionnaire to provide you with a detailed insight into your own strengths and weaknesses, as well as helping you identify practical activities which you can carry out to help you in your own development.
After completing a detailed on-line personality test you are presented with an in-depth personality profile report which you can then use to develop your own understanding of yourself, and as a springboard to embark on your own personal development using the report’s accompanying Development Workbook.
It will assist you to take control of your own development and help you accurately and honestly appraise your own strengths and weaknesses in a systematic manner.
The Career Development Report provides you with a personalised assessment 12 of major personality/behavioural traits which are of most interest to employers –
1. Emotional Reactivity
The extent to which you become emotionally involved in what is going on around you as opposed to retaining a calm objective outlook.
The extent to which you will stand up for your own rights as opposed to feeling intimidated by other people.
The extent to which you are spontaneous and enthusiastic as opposed to serious and cautious.
4. Rule Orientation
The extent to which you will adhere to rules and regulations as opposed to preferring less control and regulation.
5. Social confidence
The extent to which you are confident and comfortable in social situations as opposed to feeling shy and threatened.
The extent to which you are sensitive to what other people say and do as opposed to being more ‘thick skinned’ and not overly aware of others’ feelings.
The extent to which you are trusting and accepting of other people as opposed to being suspicious and wary of their motives and intentions.
8. Cognitive style
This factor refers to a person’s intellectual style, and is to do with the way you perceive and take in information about the world around you, in order to make decisions and solve problems. This factor looks at whether you have a more flexible, strategic and abstract problem solving style as opposed to a more concrete, ‘hands on’ approach.
The extent to which you are open and honest with other people as opposed to being more private and discrete.
The extent to which you feel tension or anxiety in your everyday life as opposed to being generally happy with yourself and having a good level of self esteem.
The extent to which you have a flexible attitude towards change and uncertainty or whether you view change as a threat and something to be avoided.
The extent to which you feel the need to have the company of other people or are happy to ‘do your own thing’ without the support of others.
Everybody has development areas – by definition a personality characteristic which may make a person suitable for one job can become a development need in other jobs. The best example of this is when a person takes on a management role. How many Sales Managers have failed because they couldn’t stop selling and start managing others – the individual competitive focus they once needed has now become a hindrance. Every career or job change entails learning new skills.
Consequently, once your personal characteristics have been explained, your Career Development Report then takes you through the stages of identifying potential development areas and helps you to custom build your own Career Development Plan to help you address them.
In a step by step series of stages you are guided through the process of –
- Understanding the concept and theory of personality
- Identifying your own strengths and weaknesses
- Setting your own development objectives
- Identifying your own learning style
- Identifying learning and development opportunities
- Identifying behaviours relevant to Work Success
- Managing your own development through Review and Feedback.
