Careefinder Program Policy
Our Careerfinder programs, Classic and Plus, include aptitude testing materials, scoring and evaluation of the test results and a single 1.5-hour talent profile consultation (the assessment results interpretation session) with a Pathfinders career coach to discuss your results and career path possibilities.
You may schedule your talent profile interpretation session at your convenience. Most of our clients participate in their interpretation session soon after they receive their career testing results. Others may wait several months to participate in their results interpretation session. If necessary, you may wait up to 2 years after the date of purchase before scheduling and conducting your profile interpretation session. Anytime beyond the 2 year date, you may receive the interpretation consultation for an extra charge of $150.00 US Dollars.
You may return the Careerfinder Program materials in unused condition within 30 days of purchase for a refund, minus a $50 charge for processing your order.
Once you begin your program, we do not offer a refund if you use the Careerfinder aptitude testing materials in total or in part, or if you take the aptitude testing and send it in for scoring and evaluation but do not schedule or make use of the interpretation consultation.
Pathfinders Plus, Quest and CareerCX Program Policy
Our Plus, Quest and CareerCX programs begin with the same aptitude assessment and results consultation described above and continue with one or more one-to-one career design coaching sessions, depending on the program. These programs are specialized courses to guide you through one or more phases of our career design method. Each phase includes step-by-step exercises and strategies for a customized set of activities for our clients to perform to complete the prescribed course work. Each program is limited to a preset number of phases (see diagram), including one or more of the following: discovering, designing and questing, choosing, and launching a new or next career path. Pathfinders’ commitment is to guide you in making a career decisions that you are confident about.
The number of sessions each of our clients need to finish their specific program varies; some people may finish a program in fewer sessions than expected. Pathfinders does not offer a partial or prorated refund if the program is finished in less sessions than prescribed by your chosen program. These programs are not priced on a specific number of sessions; rather, for our specialized body of knowledge, experience and wisdom that includes proprietary tools, methods and coaching know-how to assist you in making a confident career decisions.
If you decide to cancel your program before you get started, you may return the Careerfinder testing materials in unused condition within 30 days of purchase for a refund, minus a $50 charge for processing your order.
Once you begin your program, Pathfinders does not offer a refund if you decide to quit, drop out, or stop participating in our programs for any reason.
Pathfinders does not promise or make any warranties that you will land a new job or make a complete career change “during” the course of your program, although some people do and most get the ball rolling in a new direction much quicker with our methods than the industry average.
Pathfinders does not offer résumé writing or job placement services as a part of this program, however, we can refer you to a résumé expert.
Pathfinders reserves the right to change or amend these policies and fees at any time.
