6. Psychological Career Assessment Profile: Every Salary Level.


A. Ph.D. led (Local or Remote) Testing/Interpretation to assess what clients can do, will do, or are a good fit for.
Additional Services:

Client Level: Every Employee Level.

The Outplacement Consulting Services (OCS) assessment process addresses what a job candidate can do, will do, and is a good career fit for. Our assessments explore three areas: workplace skills/interests, personality, and leadership. Career assessment is used by many companies to screen in, or screen out job candidates competing for key positions. All are interpreted by a Ph.D. Consultant, and  utilized to add value to the job candidate’s search campaign. Some of these assessment tools include, but are not exclusive to the following:

The Holland SDS Instrument

The Holland Self-Directed Search Instrument explores six work-related themes. These include realistic, investigative, artistic, social, enterprising, and conventional interests. The six themes are matched with the job candidate’s activities, competences, and career interests to calculate a Holland Code. This code is then used to identify one’s ideal work preferences. OCS has found this tool useful in the Career Continuation “Fast-Track” Workshop group setting.

Myers Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI)

The MBTI addresses the valuable differences in people. It explores the preferences that focus our attention, the way individuals perceive information, make decisions, and adopt certain types of lifestyles. The MBTI provides 16 possible personality types, and one of these codes is assigned to the test taker. Each four letter code type has its own set of inherent strengths/weaknesses that have an impact the job candidates’ career choices.

Oral Communication Styles

Based on the work of the eminent Swiss Psychoanalyst Carl Jung, and the subsequent MBTI, Communication Styles is designed to help establish an essential communications bond with other people, regardless of personal style. It helps them gain insight into one’s own communication style, identify and understand the communication styles of others while appropriately adjusting one’s style to enhance communication and rapport.

Campbell Interest and Skill Inventory

The Campbell Interest and Skill Survey (CISS) examines the interests and skills that are important components of one’s personality. What people like to do, and what they are confident they can do, can play a significant role in future career satisfaction and success. The CISS profile analyzes self-reported skills and exhibits how one compares with people in general along with those happily employed in a variety of occupations. The basic purpose of this survey is to help find a career in which one will be happy and productive.

Strong Interest Inventory

A vocational interest instrument that measures personal characteristics across six occupational themes, the Strong also addresses the social, enterprising, conventional, artistic, investigative and realistic themes of one’s personality. After these traits are matched with the job candidate’s level of interest, each one is tied to a career path.

16 Personality Factors (16 PF)

Awareness and acceptance of ourselves is the first step toward making a sound career choice. It also is the foundation for managing our behavior and gradually acquiring new alternatives in behavior. The 16PF transcends the immediate task of job finding, and helps us explore the potential in our life plan. Its goal is not to label “good or bad”, “right or wrong” , “sane or crazy.” The purpose of the 16 PF is to provide insight into our business-related personality , and instruct us as to how to best manage weaknesses, particularly those that might have been problematic in the past.

Personality Research Form (PRF)

This inventory identifies traits relevant to how a person functions in a wide variety of situations. The PRF focuses on areas of normal functioning; including how a person “comes across” to others. Addressing 22 behavioral measures of human performance, this instrument helps the job candidate find the right job based on their personality.

E-Mail Textual Styles

Founded on the Jungian school for thought, and the MBTI, this interactive, assessment-centered session helps the job candidate identify his own, and others’ e-mail style. It promotes e-mail “e-tiquette” with colleagues in an organization, and improves the effectiveness of the electronic message by adapting it to recipients’ dissimilar communication styles. Further, it helps us avoid common e-mail pitfalls, and demonstrates to internal/external customers the benefits of doing same.

LDR

The Leadership Development Report (LDR) is a system designed for individuals wishing to improve managerial and executive performance. The extensive report provides detailed advice based on the individual’s scores on 25 personality dimensions. Coaching advice generated by the LDR is based on complex statistical modeling, research findings, and counseling experience with more than 4000 executives. It provides insight into the interaction between one’s personality and job performance, and provides strategies to alter a manager’s behavior within his or her own natural limits.
