About Our Assessments

This new version 3.0 is fabulous. I can’t say enough good things. A truly remarkable program.” Marcie Swift, M.Ed., NCSP, Certified CCfS Coach, West Suffield, CT

Career Coaching for Students™ is the program that students in high school or college can use to gain clarity around their talent and learn about career choices that are a good fit to their talent.


The program is offered as the centerpiece for coaches and counselors, for group workshops, individual home use by parents with their son or daughter and for school administrators, guidance counselors and teachers as part of a class curriculum. A facilitator’s guide and certification training is available for those wanting to deliver the content in a class or workshop setting.

Career Coaching for Students™ was introduced to address the growing need in society for our students to find passion in life. With half of today’s workers unsatisfied in their career and college students changing majors an average of twice before graduating, the financial and emotional impact on students has become a national concern. There are a number of programs geared towards helping students “qualify” for college with a little “career direction” sprinkled in. Career Coaching for Students™ goes much deeper by inspiring students to find their passion, establish goals and create action plans to achieve success.
Student Career Development Strategy

Program Syllabus

The student receives a guidebook and two comprehensive talent assessments. The guidebook includes 18 easy-to-follow steps that go way beyond simply identifying potential careers. A good deal of the program is designed to create greater self-awareness, higher self-esteem and a roadmap to achieve any career goal.

Students begin their journey by completing two talent assessments, based on the same science used by corporations to match people to jobs. The talent assessments go much deeper than anything you’ve experienced before, providing information about what drives the student (motivators), their behavioral strengths, communication preferences and more. These highly validated assessments give students the edge in learning about themselves and how they interact in their environment by looking at both “how” and “why” they do things.

The guidebook then takes students through the process of career discovery and helps them achieve tangible results as if they had the support of a professional career coach. Students focus on specific details about themselves that lead to career discoveries and associated educational requirements. By the end, students have created a roadmap for their success. But even better than that, the student gains greater awareness and confidence in their own talents.
