We are all wired to seek purposeful work and experiences that resonate with who we are and our unique interests. Whether it’s choosing a university/college program or transitioning into a new role, everyone wants to be in a position where they are performing meaningful and satisfying work.
People are more likely to achieve success and see advancement if they are engaged in and enjoy the work they do.
Being in tune with your personality and passions is important when exploring different career avenues. Self-assessment is a valuable way to clarify career directions and capitalize on the innate preferences that contribute to job satisfaction. When empowered by this knowledge, individuals can better navigate towards their best fitting educational direction and career paths.
The Birkman Method results help individuals make quality personal, academic, extracurricular, community service, college, and career decisions. The results are presented in a personal report and a one-on-one review.
The Birkman Method® is a powerful behavioural, social perception, and occupational interest assessment that delves much deeper than other standard career assessment used in corporate, educational, and individual settings. It has over sixty-five years of validated research, with more than 8000 companies, educational institutions and assessment centres and more than 3.5 million people worldwide having taken the assessment which is available in more than 20 languages.
With scientifically proven accuracy, Birkman combines behavioral and occupational data, enabling individuals to better understand the careers best suited for them based on their personality and interests. It doesn’t just suggest careers to explore; it actually matches a person to the workplace where people with similar personality characteristics and interests are reporting success and personal satisfaction in those jobs.
These insights can be used as a guide for exploring the career options that hold the highest potential for satisfaction.
In addition to validated career information, the Birkman Method® also assesses what motivates the individual and helps to get to critical answers about how we learn, think, decide, communicate and relate to others. The Birkman Method highlights needs that are not easily observed by each individual or those around them, and with great accuracy can also reveal the stress behaviours, if one’s needs are not met. This information allows people to learn to understand and accept themselves and how they interact with others.
