The Harrison Online Career Assessment is a powerful tool that takes the participants responses from a range of relevant questions and turns them into a newly identified list of career options rated according to job satisfaction and enjoyment.
The assessment includes an overview of their greatest strengths as a person, a career development guide that illustrates the ways in which they can most effectively understand and perform work tasks, and a career comparison report which identifies how suited they are to a chosen career and how well they would adapt to that occupation.
The Harrison Online Career Assessment is available in 29 languages and assesses jobseeker behaviour and aptitude in a way that is simple, easy to use and only takes 25-30 minutes to complete. The cost of taking the assessment is $33 including GST.
The Harrison Online Career Assessment Tool generates four separate online reports for jobseekers, which can be provided to employers as an independent assessment of employment suitability:
- Career options report, ranking a list of appropriate careers in descending order by suitability
- Greatest strengths report, which provides an analysis of a jobseeker’s greatest work-related strengths
- Career development report (coaching tool)
- Career comparison report, outlining suitability for a given career.
The career comparison report allows participants to compare their career preferences against the requirements for any given occupation. It can also function as a mentoring tool to give potential employers advice about how best to work with jobseekers to develop their workplace capabilities.
Employers can use a local jobactive provider for tailored recruitment services, at no cost to their business. jobactive providers work closely with employers to understand their recruitment needs.
Job seekers can get help from a jobactive provider to get and keep a job . jobactive providers have the flexibility to tailor their services to a job seeker’s assessed needs.
