Assessment as a Tool for Career Confidence and Communication in the Job Search Process
By Amy Gazaway, Student Success Coordinator for Oklahoma State University

ISFJ. Gold and blue. A Guardian. A Protector. Responsibility, focus, achiever, learner, relator. While the outcomes of personal assessments may yield some interesting letters and words, the deeper meaning behind assessment results provide an immense value to job seekers in helping them identify opportunities that fit and communicate with confidence about their most valuable qualities.

Even Socrates asserted the importance of assessment when he said, “Know thyself,” and one of the important benefits of assessment results is that they provide a lens through which job seekers can better evaluate opportunities for compatibility with who they are. The more aware a job seeker is about his or her personal qualities, the easier it is for the job seeker to determine if a job or an employer will “fit.” For example, if a job seeker has affirmed innate preferences for structure, order and routine as identified by an assessment and an opportunity arises that requires little structure, constant variation, and spur-of-the-moment decision-making, the job seeker would easily be able to discern that the specific positon with the specific employer is not a good match for his or her talents and preferences.
