Career Success Process


Career Dimensions' Career Success Process is comprised of three key elements that every career planning initiative should contain:

Assessment to identify the components of your ideal job description

Research to investigate what jobs or career paths are the best match for your ideal job

Tools for communicating effectively with the people who can help you pursue a satisfying career

Career Dimensions uses a client workbook to support this process in our Career Change, Job Search, and Outplacement programs in conjunction with one-to-one counseling or group training.

The workbook contains exercises, information and examples divided into the following sections:

 

Assessment

Assessment is generally the first phase of career planning. In our program, we have exercises for identifying the elements of your motivational pattern and ideal job description.

These components are:

Transferable skills

Skills that come naturally and are inborn

Interests and Special Knowledge

Skills you learn through academic study, on the job and in your leisure time

Personality Traits

How various working conditions fit your personality

Values and Rewards

What you want from your career

Geographical considerations

Where you would like to work and live

People environments

The personal characteristics you prefer in your management, peers and employees

Working Conditions

The philosophical, psychological and physical attributes of your place of work

Compensation

Desired Income, benefits and perks

Level of Responsibility

Your career path

Potential Barriers

Internal and external obstacles that may keep you from getting what you want

 

The Myers Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI) is also a great tool for confirming your strongest transferable skills and the types of environments that support your most satisfying contribution.
