Do you know what you'll be when you grow up?!
No wonder you don't. As fast as the labour market changes, no one can predict this. Positions and jobs are constantly evolving. Existing professions are being replaced, disappearing or completely new ones are being created. It is a mystery what will happen in 5 years' time, or even next year.
Does it still make sense to talk about career orientation?
Yes, of course, but: instead of looking at specific positions, the answer to the question should be found in your interests and your own skills!
Interests instead of positions
We are going against the norm!
What others do:
They suggest study or career paths to get the position you want (or think you want). Nowadays, of course, there is also the question of whether the position will still exist, and whether it will be worth studying and working for.
What we do:
We reverse the usual career guidance process. We measure what you are talented at and what areas you are interested in. Based on the results, we'll show you which areas of activity match both your skills and your personality.
Talent and self-awareness should be the basis of any career orientation.
How can you measure what suits you? ?
Using tests to measure your talents:
- Cognitive, logical and thinking skills
We measure everything from thinking, logical reasoning, perception, attention skills and memory.
- General math and reading comprehension skills
Basic arithmetic tasks, as well as interpretation of written text and instructions, filtering information.
- Dexterity and fine motor skills
Measurement of limb coordination, hand stability and accuracy of aiming in interactive test tasks.
Measure interest using questionnaires:
- Identifying personality traits and characteristics
Use of the 6 separate personality categories of the HEXACO model, recognised and used in scientific circles, in the measurement.
- Monitoring of job and career interest
Examination of the willingness to work in different work environments.
During our career orientation assessment and counselling you will learn:
- Which of the cognitive and logical skills you have been assessed as having outstanding talent, and which ones you should develop further.
- What personality traits the questionnaire shows you have, and which skills support each of these values.
- Which activities are of interest to you, which you can see yourself doing in the longer term and which are recommended in the light of your measured abilities.
So far, we have helped 1600 students set their academic and career goals!
