Advantages of Taking a Birkman® Career Exploration Test
Learn what fields and roles suit your interests and behaviors.
Your test provides indicators of roles where you are likely to be successful -- for example, a physician, attorney, social worker, or salesperson. It provides an overview of your personality traits such as creativity, the desire to please customers, and enjoyment in solving problems. The test can provide indicators of future job performance, followed by cognitive ability, social perceptions, workplace culture and setting preferences, and occupational interests.
Stand out among other candidates.
While you may have a knock-out LinkedIn® profile and an impressive resume and cover letter, a personality assessment report gives you an advantage over other candidates. It sends a strong message that you are very serious about your job search and your future. The results are a great conversation starter and are impressive on your social media profiles, especially LinkedIn®.
Better focus for your job search.
The Birkman® test results can help guide you in your job search strategy and employer identification analysis.
Who can benefit from a career exploration test?
Although we believe that individuals from all walks of life could benefit from taking a Birkman Career Exploration Test, we encourage testing for current college students who are undecided on their major, recent college graduates beginning their job search, and female “returners” who have unclear job search direction after time at home. A Birkman® Method test provides an objective assessment that will illuminate your next steps.
