Below you will find frequently asked questions from our clients. If you do not find the answer to your question, please contact us using the form below.
WILL A CAREER ASSESSMENT REALLY HELP ME CHOOSE THE RIGHT EDUCATIONAL FOCUS AND THE RIGHT COLLEGE?
You must know the right career for you to pick the right college that has the right educational focus to prepare you for the right career. The career assessment collects aptitude, personality, and approach to work data to match you with the right career. It is that simple, leading you to move forward with focus and great confidence that you are on the right track.
HOW IS YOUR CAREER ASSESSMENT DIFFERENT FROM OTHERS?
The traditional and older science approach has sentences to which you “strongly agree”, “somewhat agree”, etc. In contrast, the YouScience™ assessment uses a series of “brain games” and gamification exercises to collect information on how you are wired. The most common reaction is that the assessment is surprisingly fun. It is exceedingly difficult to choose answers that fool the assessment. The YouScience™ assessment scientifically uncovers your God-given aptitudes versus self-reported skills and interests used in the older career assessments.
ARE THE BENEFITS MY CHILD WOULD GET WORTH THE COST?
The average college student is now graduating in five years instead of four because of the lack of clarity on their most fulfilling career and right college major selection. Our plan provides that clarity and helps students graduate and enter the marketplace on time. Risking an extra year of tuition and board and losing a year of a $50,000 average salary is exceedingly more costly than our career plan. Last, how does one quantify the cost, frustration, and pain of being in an unfulfilling career?
HOW MANY "STRONG” CAREER RECOMMENDATIONS WILL YOU RECEIVE?
The average is 12-24 out of the 1,110 careers in the Department of Labor’s database. Clients always discover suitable occupations about which they have never known or considered. Clients leave with a strong confidence in a vision of living life with a fulfilling career.
HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE TO COMPLETE THE CAREER PLAN?
Each of the four career plans include video content, a career assessment, personal application time, and some plans include online coaching. The career assessment for all career plans takes 90 minutes, while other sections vary depending on the plan. Below is a time breakdown by plan based on average client completion.
Basic Career Plan: 4.25 hours
Essential Career Plan: 6.5 hours
Premium Career Plan: 8 hours
Ultimate Career Plan: 9 hours
HOW DO THE CAREER PLANS WORK?
The career plans are broken down into four sections. In the first section clients solidify their foundation by gaining clarity of purpose, priorities, and God’s will for there work. Some non-profits have decided to teach this section themselves to those they serve, and we are highly supportive of that. Section two involves clients completing a work and education questionnaire, a communication upgrade tool, and then the scientifically proven and gamified YouScience™ assessment. In section three clients receive video teaching and personalized coaching to help them discover their best career fit. Finally, in section four clients receive video teaching and personalized coaching to help them get a job in their best career fit.
HOW QUICKLY DO I GET MY RESULTS?
You receive your confidential results within one business day. Your Career Coach will get them as well to prepare for your coaching session.
HOW DO I GET SPECIFIC COLLEGE MAJOR OR TRADE EDUCATION ADVICE NEEDED FOR IDEAL CAREER PREPARATION?
The college and university database reveals what colleges or universities have the majors that best prepare for the ideal or a related career. This feature saves enormous amounts of search time.
WHAT ROLE CAN PARENT(S) PLAY IN COACHING SESSIONS?
One of the benefits of a parent attending the coaching session is that both the parent and the student will learn about the student’s hidden and undeveloped aptitudes leading to greater self-awareness, confidence, and direction.
WHY DO YOU FOCUS SO MUCH ON APTITUDES?
The right way to pick a career is to understand your aptitudes (see above), let the technology match you with the occupations that need and use your aptitudes, evaluate your interest in the career suggestions, and then pick the best career for you. Leaning primarily on interests will lead the client in the wrong and frustrating direction.
WHY DO YOUR CAREER PLANS HAVE A CHRISTIAN OVERLAY?
The Bible has a lot to say about “work,” especially since there was work in Genesis 2 before sin entered the world in Genesis 3. Proverbs and many other scripture passages address God’s will for us in work and what role work plays in our lives. This knowledge allows us to please God in the work that we do.
