Uncover Your Talents — Reach Your Potential

Uncover Your Potential

The Careerfinder Program

Your natural talents are your superpower. They are a more accurate guide to target the best career paths for you than your interests, or your grades, or what your friends and parents told you to do—the ways that most people try to figure out what they should do with their lives.

Gaining clarity about your core nature and true strengths will solve the mystery of where you fit in the career world and put you on the path to a satisfying career choice, whether you’re just starting out or have one or more careers under your belt. No more job-hopping or hoping grad school will put you on the right path.

The Careerfinder Program includes a powerful career assessment test, a natural talent profile results kit, a highly customized talent profile consultation, and one follow-on career design coaching session to help you uncover your potential, find your direction, narrow your career choices, and put your results into action.

Careerfinder

The Careerfinder program covers Phase 1, the foundation of all our Pathfinder programs—uncovering your innate talents, abilities and personality traits.

Part 1. The Careerfinder program begins with the career testing, your natural talent profile results kit, and a highly personalized talent profile consultation to help you understand your results.

Part 2. After you complete part 1, the program promptly continues with a customized career design assignment. You’ll take a deep dive to nail down the best ways to engage your unique mix of talents and personality traits. Once you complete your assignment, you have one more career coaching session, scheduled at your own pace, to make sense of your career clues and talent whispers. You’ll learn how to translate or apply your core, innate “talent hats” as natural job functions and roles, choose a field of study, or strategize how to transfer your talents to a new position or field.

Who for? The program works well for people all ages and career stages, whether you are choosing a college major, making a career choice, planning to go to grad school, or considering a career change.

About the Test

Your Natural Abilities: The key to the Careerfinder Program is our high-caliber, state-of-the-art career aptitude testing battery that engages your abilities in a series of timed cognitive performance assessments that measure your natural gifts and talents. For instance, our test measures spatial ability, which, when combined with other aptitudes and traits, can accurately predict who will thrive in fields such as medicine, engineering or filmmaking.

Your Hidden Potential: Our career testing is profoundly different from the basic self-assessment personality quizzes and interest inventories out there. The ones you can take in college career centers or in the workplace are simplistic surveys that ask you what you like, and then tell you stuff that you already know about yourself. Our testing allows you to “see under the hood” of your passions or interests by uncovering what you don’t know about yourself. We measure, assess, and integrate your natural aptitudes, personality traits, and creative abilities into a unique career potential fingerprint or talent profile. Knowing how you are “wired up” helps you to dramatically narrow your career choices, sharpen your focus and hone your ability to navigate complex life decisions. When you are in your natural element, you’ll be going with the grain of what you’re cut out for.

COVID-19 Logistics

We are remaining open for business as the COVID-19 pandemic unfolds. As always, the Careerfinder testing is done remotely: we mail it to you to take at home. Until further notice, we are conducting our testing consultation and coaching sessions by Zoom, Skype or phone for both local and long-distance clients, worldwide. Pathfinders is located in Charlottesville, VA.
