Career Assessment Services

At CAPS we focus on doing one thing well - helping you to find work that expresses and fulfills your needs, talents, and passions. Toward that end, we provide you with the Assessment for Career Excellence (ACE) Program of career assessment and exploration to help you define your vocational interests & personality, learn about today's labor market, and make a match between the two. Let's look at these two different kinds of knowledges a little more closely...

Understanding Yourself:
Gaining Self-knowledge Through Career Assessment

We use proven career assessment instruments along with some other important self-assessment exercises in order to develop a picture of your vocational personality. Once this is done, we help you to understand the world of work.

Knowledge of
The World of Work

There are thousands of jobs in today's labor market. An important part of the ACE Program is helping you to make sense of today's world of work. To assist in that we provide you with a working model of today's employment market so that you can better understand it. Once you have this understanding, you will have taken a big step toward being able to see where you fit in it.

Combining Self-Knowledge
with Knowledge of the World of Work

Once you know more about your vocational personality and you better understand the world of work, we combine these two elements and clearly define where you fit in today's labor market. When you know where you fit, you can then begin to explore careers that would be a good match for you.

Researching Career Choices

There will probably be more than one or two careers that sound appealing to you and you are probably going to want to do more research into those careers after our session is over. To help you do this, we'll show you some of the most effective ways to research careers and the training needed to access those careers.

What You Will Have

When you're done with the ACE Program you'll have everything you need to make a good career choice. You'll know how to do research into a number of careers that sound like good matches for you. Through self-knowledge, you'll be better able to look at any of those careers and determine how fulfilling they might be for you. And, perhaps most importantly, you'll have more confidence in your ability to take control of your career and your life.

Career Assessment Sessions & Fees

The ACE Program consists of two sessions of approximately 2 to 3 hours in length conducted online through Zoom. The fee for the ACE Program will be what you can pay. There is no standard fee for the Program. Basically, you'll pay what you can at the end of the sessions. When thinking about payment I ask you to consider two things: First, what you can afford, and second, how much the ACE Program helped you. This should give you a solid basis on which to judge any fee you might pay. Because career counseling fees are typically $75 - $150 per hour, I feel I am able to give back in a wonderful way by providing career counseling in this "Pay As You Can" fashion.
