An essential ingredient in your career guidance toolkit

CareerScope is an assessment tool for career advisors that allows you to measure your clients’ unique abilities and interests to design optimal career pathways. What they discover through CareerScope expands possibilities in ways that ignites new levels of confidence and excitement for you and your job seeker, together.

How CareerScope works

The CareerScope assessment blends interest and aptitude scoring, and applies this scoring to extensive career databases to give career seekers best-fit career recommendations.

CareerScope Aptitude Exercises

Measure a job seeker’s potential to learn specific tasks, regardless of existing skills or experience. Aptitude measurement is one way to predict career pathway success through an objective understanding of a job seeker’s fundamental strengths and abilities.. Your client completes 7 modules that evaluate how well they understand patterns, attention to detail, written language, math, forms, and shapes.

CareerScope Interest Inventory

Measures what sparks job seekers’ enthusiasm, curiosity, and motivation. It consists of 141 questions tied to 12 interest areas.
Specifically, you learn:

  • What fields they are drawn to, such as business, artistic fields, science, or manufacturing.
  • What roles they are drawn to, such as leadership, sales, or hands-on production.
  • How they like to work with others. For example, do they see themselves as service providers supporting or protecting people, administrators crunching numbers or organizing paperwork, or as hands-on workers, rolling up their sleeves and building things?

CareerScope’s Best-Fit Career Recommendations

combine the blended assessment results and career options using the most comprehensive national databases of career opportunities to give you — the career advisor — clarity and confidence while advising your client.

Our Career Counselor Portal gives you and your colleagues the ability to manage individual assessments and view individual results, reports, and career recommendations. CareerScope’s platform analyzes a person’s specific interests and aptitudes to recommend careers and specific jobs titles where they have the most potential for success.
