We reached out to our counselors and asked them to share a Success Story about their clients and how CareerScope has positively impacted them. Recently, Megan McKeever, Career Coordinator at House of Hope, shared a powerful Success Story.
CareerScope Celebrates Each Success Story
“CareerScope is more than just an assessment tool. For some of our participants, it’s truly inspirational. A participant in our career coaching program was looking for a change but was unsure what direction to take; 30 years previous, he left college just a couple of classes shy of his Bachelor’s degree. He took the CareerScope assessment hoping to find a new direction, but here it was, pointing him right back in the direction of his abandoned degree. Clearly displaying his aptitude and interests put him back on the path, and the career change he was seeking was taking him full circle to where he started. With the results printed in front of him, he decided to call his prior university and re-enroll! In just three virtual classes, he will finish his long-awaited degree and graduate by the end of this year!”
