The Careerfinder program is a state-of-the-art, high caliber aptitude testing process that helps you discover your career direction. It measures a comprehensive profile or “inner compass” of your innate talents and personality traits, giving you clear bearings to explore your career sweet spot. Becoming masterful at what you do comes by following your strongest inner “pull” to continuously practice what comes naturally to you.
Highly educated, brilliant people from around the world have taken this testing and are blown away by how powerful it is, and amazed to discover abilities they didn’t realize they have. Discovering your innate “hidden” potential is, first and foremost, the key to a persistent pursuit of a new career endeavor.
And this program goes way beyond helping with career direction, it keeps getting better. Clients report that it’s not only fun to nurture their natural talents, this new perspective gives them a deep wisdom to draw on and confidently pave their way forward throughout life. Knowing how you’re wired dramatically sharpens your focus and hones your ability to navigate complex decisions in work, life and love.
Classic: Phase 1
The Classic is our foundation program, everything builds on discovering and knowing your innate abilities and traits.
This program works for people of all ages and career stages who are preparing to make career choices or educational decisions in the near future or for anyone who is planning to make a career change and need a jump start to get the ball rolling. If your gut is telling you that you might be in the wrong career field and have a hunch that a switch in career direction is a good idea (but the tug of procrastination has you in a holding pattern), this program has your name on it.
Classic includes: The Careerfinder Classic includes the testing and a single 1.5 hour consultation to interpret your talent profile.
Plus: Phase 1 & DIY 2
The Careerfinder Plus is a turbocharged version of the Classic and works well for self-directed people. It includes phase 1, plus one strategy session to help you get started on phase 2. After you take the careerfinder testing and have your talent profile consultation, the Plus continues with an introductory career design assignment to build on the talent clues revealed in your talent profile.
Some of our clients prefer a do-it-yourself method to navigate their career explorations, the Plus helps you get the ball rolling. During your strategy session (conducted after you’ve done the homework), we’ll work together to size up the best ways to apply your talents, and then map out a strategy to continue your own career design process.
This program works well for people who want a professional, objective opinion to verify their hunches, firm up their career direction and get a little extra help with honing and mapping out their way forward.
Transferable Skills: The introductory work in phase 2 is perfect for demystifying the “transferable skills problem;” you’ll learn how to translate your innate talents into your best-suited job functions, which can then be more readily parlayed into a new field.
A best value package, only available with the Plus program.
PLUS Includes: The careerfinder testing, 1.5 hr talent profile consultation + one career design strategy session
If I start with the Classic, can I upgrade to the Plus?
Yes, the a la carte upgrade price to add a single career design session is $500. The benefit of starting directly with the Plus is a 50% discount ($250 savings) off the full price of the career design strategy session.
Can I upgrade from the Classic or Plus to a more comprehensive program?
Yes, If you start with the Classic or Plus and decide you need more help, the natural progression forward is with the Quest and CareerCX programs. We credit forward the full amount paid for initial program toward the new program.*
*If you wait longer than a year (from your last session) to make an upgrade, we add a $150 “catch up” fee to help you recap your work and ramp things back up.
Will the Plus work well for young people without much direction?
If your career direction is rather unclear, you likely will need more comprehensive help with phase 2, the career design “quest” process. Take a look at our Careerpath Quest program, it’s designed for younger people and methodically guides you through both phases 1 and 2 in full.
