How we can benefit you

Prepare for the future

The problem is that nobody knows exactly what the world of work will be even in five years, so predicting the challenges and opportunities that you will face over your career is impossible.

So how can you prepare for the future? Well we do know that you are going to need some core attributes and skills whatever happens and these are called transferable skills.

The good news is that these can be identified and developed and will be needed in virtually all roles in the future. Anybody possessing these attributes will be able to benefit from changes in the employment landscape and effectively future-proof their career.

Inspired choices

Unless you are lucky enough to have had a blinding vocation inspiration then you will have to choose what you want to do in the immediate and longer-term future.

As such you are not really making an independent, logical choice but fitting in with, or even rebelling against, what you perceive to be parental and peer pressure.

What we provide you with is a method and structure that will allow you to objectively identify your real interests and needs and fit them with potential career routes that will provide the best rewards to you.

Overcome the choice bandits

Making an objective logical choice is remarkably difficult and unless you are a robot you will be influenced both consciously and sub-consciously, by branding, corporate messaging and well-meaning but harmful social stereotyping.

We do this by guiding them through the process of making a good career choice and then linking them to suitable opportunities.

Because Career-Fit is a cloud based automated solution it provides a consistent high quality and efficient method of supporting them though their subject and career choice journey and provides important life skills that they are going to need multiple times during their working life.

Life-long learning plan

The Career-Fit life-long learning plan research* suggests that on average people entering the workplace today will have over five career changes during their working-life.

As such people who commit to life-long learning and embrace the opportunities this creates will be rewarded with the opportunity to achieve their potential and have a stimulating and rewarding working life.

Career-Fit provides you with the tools to identify your potential, development needs and employment/training opportunities.

Well-being support

We recognise that choosing a career is one of the most complex and difficult decisions that you have had to make.

We will prepare you to cope with the stress of making such stressful and complex decisions. Not only will this reduce the stress but it will help you to develop critical reasoning and coping skills that you will be able to apply to many other situations that you will face in the future.

The Career-Fit process provides you with the framework to take control and ownership of these important choice decisions and allows you to manage this process in a calm, logical and structured way.

Know your Future Self

The Career-Fit profile helps you to visualise yourself in your chosen future life/career and is a massive aide to developing a positive mindset.

This positivity and the accompanying motivation allow you to take on challenges that while stretching also help you develop the future self you had imagined.

This future visualisation is a technique that was developed by sports psychologists for use by elite sports people to help them achieve extraordinary results. Its use in career planning is new but it does appear to be helping people increase their aspirations and over achieve their previous goals.
