unique exercise which uses past accomplishments to identify current career
passions and purpose.

of the Campbell Assessment. You will leave knowing the types of work that
interest you and your confidence in performing them.
In Session Three, we review the results of your Myers-Briggs Assessment. You
will leave knowing how your personality aids or hinders your success at work,
and what kind of work environment best meets your needs.

key job skills. We will also review results of your Clifton Strengths Finder
assessment to identify your top five areas of strength and the MassCIS Skills
In Session Five, all assessment results are reviewed and analyzed. We look for
patterns that identify your key strengths and skills (your “career best” areas)
and identify occupations that match those areas of strength. You will now be
able to say, “I know the occupations where I can succeed and excel.”
