VOCATION

VOCATION is the newest career assessment based on the RIASEC model. It measures 12 interest domains and matches the individual's profile with 138 occupations, pinpointing the most suitable profession that aligns with their personality.
Monitoring the social desirability, the assessment offers excellent reliability and is culturally adapted in order to ensure that the questionnaire is interpreted objectively without a bias against gender and age.

VOCATION is designed to be used in a wide spectrum of career guidance activities. It helps candidates choose an occupation, plan their career, and grow as professionals in the workplace.

The report provides a constructive analysis, helping the evaluator to initiate a meaningful dialogue with the candidate, understand their vocational interests, and match their profile with suitable career options.

Orientation and mobility

VOCATION can be a point of reference for career guidance processes, helping candidates to make informed decisions about their career. For those considering a career transition, it provides a good insight into their job preferences.

The combined approach of RIASEC profiles opens the field of possibilities, allowing a deeper exploration of an individual's aspirations by selecting occupations that align with their personality.

Skills assessment/training courses

VOCATION facilitates a dialogue between the individual and the assessor and as of such, is an indispensable tool for skills assessments and trainings. For training courses, it can help trainers to optimise resources by identifying an individuals' learning style and the environment most conducive to their development.

Recruitment

When combined with a personality questionnaire, VOCATION can be an integral part of your recruitment process. Through an assessment of interests and professional aspirations, recruiters can assign the positions and responsibilities that would be most stimulating and rewarding for employees.
