Career Exploration

Discover your why and Career vision

In addition to coaching, I am an IMAGE certified coach offering career packages for students to see what careers match their intrinsic motivations and strengths. After taking an online IMAGE assessment, students will see how their IMAGE pattern affects what roles they instinctively adopt for greater fulfillment in a career path or future vocation.

 

IMAGE identifies distinct patterns from seven motivations that intrinsically reflect the student. These motivational patterns influence the way students interact with friends and family, which areas of work they like or dislike, even the way they handle money or make life decisions.

 

What are intrinsic motivations?

They are inward drives, strengths and spiritual gifts that strongly influence the way students respond to people, situations and problems in the world. It answers the question: What motivates your student into action?

IMAGE is not designed to measure personality; it is designed to measure patterns which affect the roles students adopt when interacting in the world. For example: If the student`s motivation or gift is teaching, then he/she will naturally research truth to find facts and clearly present these findings to others. Or if the student is more of a comforter, his/her natural tendency is to identify with the emotions of others and respond appropriately.

 

The career compatibility profile (ICCP) provides a comprehensive analysis of motivational compatibility for seven broad areas of the work place: artistic, financial, health, public, service, social, technical and service or trade professions. Interests, skills, training and experience are not taken into account in this evaluation. Hence, it is important to realize that this evaluation only reveals compatible career areas aligned to the student`s intrinsic motivational make-up. The ICCP results will give students more career clarity and direct their college search or future path.  

 

In the business world, the goal is to move from surviving to thriving and not be caught in work or a career where students become dissatisfied and unfulfilled. According to Gallup, about 80 % of the population in the United States are not satisfied in their careers, mostly due to choosing work based on salary and benefits. Early discovery of a student`s natural intrinsic role will guide them into a more satisfying career path that matches their inner motivation.

 

To complete the online assessment, students will answer 91 questions which will take about 30 minutes. Two reports are generated from this assessment: the Intrinsic Motivation Assessment Guide and Evaluation  (IMAGE) which identifies intrinsic motivations, and the IMAGE Career Compatibility Profile (ICCP) which correlates their IMAGE results and patterns to their motivational makeups. The ICCP helps identify the greatest areas of fulfillment in different occupations. 

Why take the IMAGE assessment?

IMAGE profiles are like a COMPASS that help students:

  • Identify strengths and gifts (understand themselves better)

  • Greater self-awareness 

  • Better interpersonal skills (how they communicate with others)

  • Explore career options

  • Gain more clarity and direction (less anxiety)

Having a clearer idea of what your student wants to pursue after high school helps avoid unnecessary costs of changing majors during college and increasing debt and financial burden. 

Benefits to Parents:

  • Peace of mind that your student has explored career options and has a clearer plan

  • Peace of mind for your student and less anxiety

  • Time saving in all aspects: visiting colleges, choosing majors with a smaller "list" of options to focus on.

Disclaimer: As a coach, I do not give advise as to what colleges to go to, majors or finer details of testing, careers and college information. Coaching is explorational; not informational.  Career decision and college research is up to the student. A coach does not teach, counsel or advice. A coach empowers students to direct themselves, realize their possibilities as they explore who they are.  A coach supports the self-discovery process with questions that help students with greater self-awareness and more clarity for the next step.
