Designing a fulfilling career isn’t easy. Have you ever found yourself grappling with questions like:
What really interests me? What motivates me?
What makes me happy?
Who do I want to be?
What are my true strengths and what are my weaknesses (weaknesses that I might not even be aware of)?
With whom do I most enjoy working and toward what bigger picture goal or purpose?
Greater self-understanding results in better decisions and more effective implementation of those decisions. I administer and interpret a wide variety of assessments that focus on interests, values, skills,
personality, stress management/burnout, career beliefs, life satisfaction, and areas of improvement for happiness. Here some examples:
CareerLeader - for Professionals and Students in Business & Management
This comprehensive assessment tool is one of the most effective for careers in business. Developed by two counseling/psychology professionals at Harvard Business School, CareerLeader is used by more than 250 business schools and universities globally. It provides information about your interests, values and abilities, and then links the combination of these three to specific careers in business including brand management, consulting, investment banking, private equity/venture capital, etc.
IStrong - for Students, Early Career Professionals, and People in Career Transition
This assessment provides robust insight into a person’s interests, so you can help them to consider potential careers, their educational path and the world of work. Built on psychologist John Holland’s theory, it’s backed by more than 80 years of research into how people of similar interests are employed, and what motivates individuals in the workplace. It delivers effective and powerful results that contribute to your career development’s success.
This assessment will increase your self-understanding and how your personality affects many areas of your life, of your work and your personal life.

Personality & Interests Assessment combined
How often have you stopped to think about our career choices in terms of your own needs? Between study and job hunting? If you are leaving university soon, or job searching, or considering a career change, this is the assessment for you.
I use inventories and psychometrics to offer a complete career development picture based on a combined interpretation of your personality and professional interests. The assessments belong to the world's most known and empirically most respected inventories, used widely throughout universities, colleges, and personal development. In addition to a 26-page personality report, you will get a 9-page long detailed interest report. This highly personalized report paints a clear picture of how your specific interests and preferences link to various jobs, work settings, and career fields. It enables you to discover your true interests in order to expand your career options and chart a plan of action toward fulfilling career choices.
Prior to each the two sessions you will be asked to complete online questionnaires (20 min & 30 min). During the session we will verify the results and consider it's implications for your career & life decisions. Two sessions, each 2 hours, 4 hours total.
