Career Assessment Packages

Career Assessment Packages

Career coaching packages are available from $175 – $1,500

Are you unhappy in your current position? Want to be doing something different, but not sure
how different it has to be?

Have you been dreaming of making a change, but don’t know how? Or which of your skills are
transferable?

Would you like to go back to school? Or in some way, continue your education?

Do you want to learn from your unsatisfying or unfulfilling jobs so that you don’t find yourself in
the same situation at a different company?

Do you cringe at waking up in 3 years doing the same job?

Would buying a business be a good fit?

A Career Coaching Package has these and other answers. A package of coaching hours and assessment tools is ideal for adults or young adults who want to explore their career options, understand their motivations, find their passions, and make decisions to have a more satisfying work life.

Our confidential, in-person or Zoom sessions and assessments will help you:

  • Avoid costly mistakes, wasted time and frustration from pursuing opportunities that aren’t the right fit for you.
  • Match your strengths and abilities to the right position so that you pursue the opportunities where you will have a higher likelihood for success and satisfaction.
  • Create a path and a plan to move forward in the direction of your best match and passion, including setting goals, activities and a time frame that fits into your life

Specifics. Packages vary based on the number of coaching sessions you have, as well as which assessment tools we use. Regardless of which package you choose, you’ll always meet with me, your career coach, in person or by Zoom. We’ll go over your assessments, what they tell us about you and, most importantly—what that specifically means to you, your career choices and action plan.

Here’s a little about each of the assessments and what they measure. See below for more information.

Career Assessment Tests

The Highlands Ability Battery

The gold standard among assessment tools for measuring individual abilities. Abilities are hard-wired in each of us at birth and can be measured after the age of 14. The test gives us information on natural aptitudes, compatible work roles, artistic abilities and learning channels. Through timed work, this objective assessment will measure what you are actually good at. It takes about three and a half hours to complete and can be done in multiple sittings. It is not based on any past education.

What will I get from taking the Highlands Ability Battery?

  • An understanding of my natural talents and my best learning channels and artistic abilities
  • Learning where I am most likely to be happy and successful and my optimal work environment
  • Ideas for the best options from a group of education/career/job/business choices
  • Finding a suitable educational program for college, grad school or returning to college at any age

Strong Interest Inventory

This inventory takes about 30 minutes to complete and results in a computer generated report revealing career recommendations based solely on interests. It is not based on any educational background. Based on the work of Dr. John Holland’s theory of career types, this is one of the most respected and widely used career planning instruments in the world.

Myers-Briggs Type Indicator 

This 30 minute self-report inventory is one of the most widely used personality instruments in the world today. By learning which of 16 personality types you match, you can find a better fit for a career and work setting. As many as 1.5 million assessments are administered annually to individuals.  The Myers-Briggs sorts personality differences regarding how people direct their energy, take in information, make decisions and deal with the outer world. The resulting four-letter “Types” can be used for individual career development, career change and coaching.

PRINT Survey

The PRINT Survey is an outstanding test that gives us information about what motivates you. It reveals nine unconscious motivators and two patterns that predominate for each person. Some of the information it provides:

  • An understanding of your world view; why you do what you do
  • An understanding of the unconscious motivators that drive your behavior

Some of the benefits include:

  • Being aware of what triggers us and causes us to act in counterproductive behaviors
  • A list of career requirements that help in finding a position that is a good match

“After taking the PRINT and hearing Anne’s explanation, it put words to what made me tick and also where I got triggered by customers,” – GB

PRINT strategies can be implemented:

  • For personal growth and development
  • For work in team development
  • For career coaching

Why So Many Assessment Tests?

Taking several assessments provides you with comprehensive information about yourself and your career choices. It’s like a “Capability CAT Scan,” i.e. multiple tests provide a deeper view of your talents and provide information you might not necessarily have known about yourself.
