Need A Career Assessment?
By: Rodger Bailey, MS
Will you be happy in the career you have (or plan to have)? Will you fit in with the others in that career? Will you find the work rewarding and fulfilling? Are you a match for this career? Is there a better match for you? Is there a career in which you will find the work rewarding and fulfilling?
How do you find the answers to these kinds of questions? A Career Assessment with LAB Profile International is a simple way to get answers to these complex questions.
Our technology has been used for profiling executives, management, and employees at thousands of companies around the world since 1980. We evaluate each person on our 40 scales and we know where someone should be on these scales for hundreds of careers. When a person takes our on-line test, our system determines that person’s position on all our scales.
It is easy to understand that a bookkeeper needs to be detail oriented and that an accountant needs to have a more global view of the world. But most people do not know if they are detail oriented or not. ‘Detail oriented’ and ‘global view’ are the opposite ends of one of our 40 scales.
A detail person is not able to see the big picture; they do not have an overview capability. A detail person thinks sequentially. A detail person needs to move sequentially through the data of their tasks and needs an overview person to turn data into information.
A global view person can see the big picture. They can work with details for a limited time. A global view person can move through data sequentially, but prefers to to move through data randomly. A global view person is usually adept at turning data into information.
Imagine the clarity you can have about jobs and careers when you understand your own normal patterns. Do your patterns match that situation? Can you tolerate the patterns of the others (co-workers, management, customers) in that situation? After you get a Career Assessment, you will understand yourself and you will make the best choices.
