Work Activities Matcher (WAM)

Laurence Shatkin, Ph.D.

According to a 2005 Harris Interactive, Inc. survey, only 20 percent of workers feel passionate about their work. A poll by the Conference Board shows that nearly half of all Americans are dissatisfied with their jobs. In short, there are a lot of people out there who don't like what they do for a living. You can take an inventory to help you discover your interests and your values, your skills and your abilities. But no assessment on the market can help you explore jobs based on the day-to-day tasks you'll be expected to perform. Until now. The Work Activities Matcher gives students and job seekers a new approach to career exploration. Based on the very practical notion that you will be more satisfied with your job if you actually like what you do, the WAM outlines general work activities--representing the actual tasks you are likely to perform on the job--and asks how much you would enjoy doing them. It then helps you explore job titles based on your preferred work activities. In-depth suggestions for further research help you explore those careers. The inventory is self-scoring and self-interpreting, takes less than twenty minutes to complete, and is based on decades of research and data provided by the U.S. Department of Labor. Use the Work Activities Matcher in conjunction with the Getting the Job You Really Want workbook to help job seekers discover what jobs will be satisfying, and give the necessary skills and tips to get hired.

Picture Interest Career Survey (PICS)

Robert P. Brady, Ed.D.

Now there is an easy way for people with limited reading ability or special needs to explore their career interests and find a job that fits. The Picture Interest Career Survey is a quick way for people to identify occupational interests by using pictures of people at work rather than text-based items. Test takers are presented with 36 sets of 3 pictures and choose which of the three portrayed occupations seems most interesting. Based on the number and kind of pictures selected, PICS creates a profile of the individual which then can lead directly to career information and potential job matches. As well, this asessment is based on the RIASEC occupational coding system, making the PICS highly compatible with other career resources like the Envision Your Career (DVD). Envision Your Career was designed especially to measure career interests in people who have little or no English skills and/or limited reading and writing abilities. It is based on the RIASEC occupational coding system. However, its video administration requires no reading skills on the part of test takers, so it is an excellent alternative to language-based assessments and very good for group administration.

John Liptak, Ed.D.

For many people, finding and keeping a job is a challenge--one fraught with numerous obstacles, both material and mental.

Overcoming Barriers to Employment Success can help people move beyond their barriers to find and keep a good job. Based on JIST's best-selling inventory with more than 800,000 copies in print, this workbook takes the five major categories of barriers identified by the BESI and provides time-tested and practical strategies to overcome them.

John Liptak, Ed.D.

When it comes to finding a job, attitude is everything. Most job coaches and counselors would agree that a person's mindset and motivation when looking for a job are the keys to finding one quickly.

The assessment helps them to identify mental and attitudinal barriers that might be keeping them from finding work and discover strategies for improving their attitude and reenergizing their job search.

Career Priorities Profile (CPP)

Lynn R. Dowd, Ed.S., CVE

The first step to finding work that meets your needs is getting your career priorities in order. The Career Priorities Profile provides an easy, yet structured way for individuals to identify and compare their work needs, skills, interests, desires, and education to the realities of jobs. The result is a profile of their most important needs and preferences for use in exploring and deciding on careers. The CPP allows individuals to consider over a hundred key job-related factors in a concise, easy-to-use format. It helps to identify work needs and preferences prior to or as part of career exploration, job preparation, and the job search so these processes can be realistic, targeted, and effective. A complete revision of the Work Preference Match, the CPP has been streamlined to make it easier to use. The number of steps and amount of reading have been reduced. There is a greater focus on priorities rather than preferences. The detachable profile has been revised to include even more priorities, resources have been expanded and updated, and a new career planning worksheet is included to help users decide what steps to take next. In addition, issues regarding specific personal and situational barriers have been integrated into the assessment, making it more functional and easier to use.

Interview Style Inventory (ISI)

John Liptak, Ed.D.

The interview is the most important 60 minutes in the job search. Yet research indicates that most people are not well-prepared for the interview process. Effective interviewing skills are critical in finding employment. However, not all people approach employment interviews the same. How you approach an interview is often a function of your personality. This could be considered your interview style, and each style has its own strengths and weaknesses. The Interview Style Inventory is designed to help users identify their approach to employment interviewing based on their personality. By identifying their approach, users can then focus on their interviewing strengths and weaknesses and work to become more skilled at this crucial process. The assessment itself is color-coded, easy to use, takes less than twenty minutes to complete and score, and is useful for any job seeker. Once they determine their scores, users explore their strong and weak areas as well as suggestions for improving their interviewing skills. A worksheet at the end encourages users to plan out the strategies they will use in their next interview, capitalizing on their strengths and improving on their weaknesses. Ideal as a means of assessing an individual's interview skills or as a starting point to discussing effective interview strategies. The Interview Style Inventory works well with other a variety of other resources including: Getting Good Answers to Tough Interview Questions (DVD), Eight Steps to a Successful Job Interview (DVD), Interview Magic, Next-Day Job Interview, and more!

Career DimensionsTM: Exploring Your Work Preferences

Lynda McKim

Career DimensionsTM: Exploring Your Work Preferences focuses on your work preferences. Unlike many career assessment instruments, Career DimensionsTM helps you explore the actual work environment in which you are most comfortable by examining a variety of areas, including: the natural talents you bring to work, your values, your major job stressors, your work philosophy and your definition of success. This easy-to-understand, self-scorable instrument is based on the Personality Dimensions® temperament theory instrument and draws on the research and development that created that model. The lists of suggested occupations were compiled based on a wealth of previously published materials on type and temperament work preferences and the population statistics that have been compiled since the publication of Personality Dimensions®. Career DimensionsTM is very user friendly. It is designed for use wherever a quick, effective, yet inexpensive work place assessment will enhance the job search process, e.g.: job search programs, youth employment programs as well as career and co-op offices. The available facilitator's guide provides step-by-step instructions for using Career DimensionsTM ethically and effectively with individuals or small groups. It also outlines some exercises and activities proven useful in Career Planning/Exploration Workshops.

Note: Career DimensionsTM is available only to qualified Personality Dimensions® trainers.

Career Personality Inventory (CPI)

John Liptak, Ed.D.

The Career Personality Inventory (CPI) is based on the personality types (temperament) created by Carl Jung (and later adapted by David Keirsey, Linda Berens, and the creators of Personality Dimensions) that have been used in a wide variety of educational and counseling situations for decades. The CPI uses a simple and innovative testing method requiring test takers to simply circle words that describe them and then total the number of descriptors circled. The CPI then helps users consider how their personality relates to their careers by focusing on their top two traits. Users can match their personality types to careers and work preferences and then use the career planning guide and worksheet to set goals and start their career research. Valid and reliable, the CPI provides a powerful and cost-effective alternative to any organization using similar but more expensive personality inventories.

Job Survival and Success Scale, 2nd Edition (JSSS)

John Liptak, Ed.D.

Entrepreneurial Readiness Inventory (ERI)

John Liptak, Ed.D.

Self-employment is not for everyone, however. Researchers have studied the personalities and backgrounds of successful entrepreneurs and discovered that there are key personality traits, attitudes, and beliefs that they share. While having these traits is no guarantee that a person's new business will succeed, not having them is a sign that it will fail. Both the growth and appeal of self-employment speaks to a need for more tools to help people decide if it is a viable option for them. ERI can help individuals who are interested in entrepreneurship discover if it is a worthwhile risk. The quick, 60-item assessment gauges the user's vision, risk tolerance, perseverance, motivation, independence, and resources, ultimately indicating both strengths and weaknesses. Not only can this help would-be entrepreneurs make one of the most important decisions of their career, it can also identify potential pitfalls and barriers that they are likely to encounter. In addition, ERI offers users ample followup information, including tips for becoming more entrepreneur-ready, resources for starting one's own business, and space to create a self-employment action plan so that individuals know the steps to take next.

Introducing the Game of Networking

The Game of Networking is a board game that takes the nebulous concepts of social networking and puts them to work in a controlled simulated networked environment. The game takes players through the experience of acquiring social resources to accomplish their assigned goals by utilizing a process of building social capital.

Why a Board Game?

The latest research findings indicate that the majority of people have a difficult time connecting with others, especially individuals with whom they are not familiar. Simple verbal instructions through traditional networking activities have had limited impact on individual behaviour, and do not encourage the exploration of social resources that exist in their network. A more systematic approach is needed, particularly in the area of goal setting and linking these goals to specific network resources.

Playing the Game

The game moves players through a number of different processes vital to successful social networking, from making connections with other players to negotiating the use of resources. The first player to accomplish their goal, and list of tasks associated with it, wins the game.

Ashland Interest Assessment (AIA)

Douglas N. Jackson, Ph.D. & Connie W. Marshall, B.A.

The Ashland Interest Assessment was developed in response to a need for a career measure to accommodate individuals with barriers to employment due to educational, physical, emotional, cognitive, or psychiatric conditions. The AIA consists of 144 pairs of work related activities requiring the respondent to choose which activity he or she would like to do most. The results are printed in clear and easy to understand format. The AIA items represent work tasks typically associated with a particular occupation, such as clerical worker, sales person, or health care attendant. In other cases the items more broadly represent general work roles, such as those involving Arts and Crafts or Personal Service. Test Books Response Sheets

Majors Occupational Environment MeasureTM (MajorsOEMTM)

Mark Majors, Ph.D.

Get both sides of the coin - preference and avoidance. The Majors Occupational Environment MeasureTM (MajorsOEMTM) is a 93-item instrument that measures interests, tasks/activities and environmental settings. This information is used to form separate Preference and Avoidance scales for 11 Occupational Action Groupings (OAG; 22 scales total), as well as 6 scales of Global Interest Areas (GIA; provides Holland Occupational Code) that represent aspects of developed personality. The OEM is simple and easy to administer by e-mail access link. The MajorsOEM takes on average 15 minutes to complete and is valid for ages 16 (high school juniors) and up. The MajorsOEMTM - Career Exploration Profile (MajorsOEM-CEPTM) report provides your clients with valuable information to help them make career decisions that are satisfying and a good fit for their personality. It is equally effective for those who are starting out or changing careers; anytime making the right career choice is important. The MajorsOEM-CEP makes the process of choosing the "right" career or occupation understandable by putting structure onto your client's decision-making process. Clients learn how to identify the possible satisfying occupations, and reduce the chance that they will be surprised later by unexpected disappointments. The CEP report reveals the individual's patterns for Avoiding or Preferring the 11 Occupational Activity Groupings (groups of tasks, activities and environments in which they are performed). They will also discover how their Global Interest Area (parallel to Holland Occupational Code) results can connect them to different working environments. This report gives specific process information to help your clients make an informed career decision leading to occupational satisfaction.

The MajorsOEMTM is a "B" level assessment, and can only be purchased by qualified individuals. Please see Ordering Information on www.clsr.ca, or contact customer service at 1-877-680-0200 or [email protected] for details.

COPSystem

The COPSystem has become one of the most extensively used systems of assessing interest, abilities, and values in Canada. Its ability to cover a broad range of applications makes it a favourite for counsellors working with varied audiences. It measures an individual's abilities, interests and values and relates the scores to fourteen occupational groupings or "clusters." These clusters organize occupations based on similar activities into groups reflecting comparable courses of training, most typical job changes and greatest similarity of interests, abilities and values. The assessment inventories used in the COPSystem fall under three major categories: Interests, Abilities and Values. The Interests Inventory (COPS) is available to meet a wide scope of needs ranging from a simplified edition for early grades, to a professional edition for adult professionals in career transition. The Abilities (CAPS) component measures eight areas that have been identified as entry requirements for a majority of jobs. The Values (COPES) component helps your clients identify traits that are important to them in the workplace. Each test is administered separately and the results can then be interpreted for each or integrated for a comprehensive approach. This stimulates individual career investigation and research and assists with high-school curriculum planning and college or university majors.
