A word on Vocational Testing

The Strong Interest Inventory® (CCP Asia Pacific Pty Ltd) is our primary vocational testing tool. Vocational testing can be a very beneficial self-exploration and career planning tool for many of our clients; however, it is not a compulsory part of our service. Every client’s circumstances are different and many of our clients do not need it. The suitability of vocational testing can be explored during your first consultation, along with other strategies and tools we can use to help you.

How many consultations are needed?

We have a flexible approach and do not lock clients into a specific number of sessions. Everyone’s needs are different, though in our experience, clients at various stages of their life/career benefit most from at least two-three career consultations with us.

The Strong Interest Inventory ® administered by CCP Asia Pacific Pty Ltd, is regarded worldwide for its ability to link the interests and professional areas of a person to career, education and leisure options. It is user friendly and is not a test, rather an assessment of your interests (not your skills or aptitude). For over 85 years, it has been of the most respected and widely used career planning tools in the world. We use it to complement our coaching, helping clients develop a clearer understanding of themselves in order to make informed career, lifestyle and vocational choices. The Strong Profile and Interpretative Report is a 19 page detailed report produced after you have taken an online questionnaire. The report is provided to you and discussed in detail during your consultation. There are other Strong reports available including the Strong Interest Inventory Profile with High School Profile Sample Report.

Three and five session consultation packages (with or without vocational testing) are available over a specified time period. They include options of unlimited email and phone support between appointments.

Pricing will vary according to your career stage and the work involved; however, we aim to keep our quality service affordable and provide options to suit your budget. A quality resume is an investment in your career and essential in a competitive job market.
