Why an online assessment isn’t the same as a coach in your corner

Why career assessments are just one piece of solving your career challenge…

Dear All,

Have you tried taking an online assessment, only to be disappointed by your results?

Often clients come to us after taking dozens of career assessments on the internet, but still don’t feel like they have any real answers.

Assessments can offer some insight into our personalities or our strengths, but we often struggle with how to apply this information to our careers.

This is exactly why a career coach is such an important piece of solving your career challenge.

A coach is an objective sounding board, with the expertise to help you debrief and explore your work values, passions, and possible career paths suggested through assessments.

Testing can spark career ideas, but a coach will help you turn it into a roaring flame! We’ve got some great resources on how assessments and coaching compliment each other as part of your career challenge journey!
