we'll help you to see the wood for the trees

pause

“If you do not know where you come from, then you don't know where you are, and if you don't know where you are, then you don't know where you're going. And if you don't know where you're going, you're probably going wrong.” Terry Pratchet


If you are feeling under pressure to find the job or course that is right for you then you need to pause and reflect on who you really are, what you really need and what you aspire to be... and why.


This part of our program should take no longer than 1 hour of preparation in blocks of no more than 20 minutes.

rewind

To better understand who you are and what motivates you we have pulled together a number of short multiple choice exercises that help "type" your personality, your prefered occupation and your prefered industry.


We say "type" as the results are not definitive but they do give us a place to start from. With your help we then tweak the results to find your true starting point.


In addition to providing the starting point for your program with FirstCareerAcademy you can use the results of this exercise to include in your CV or personal statement and to better understand how potential employers or institutions might view you.

fast forward

Using the infornation from the assessments described above we will guide you to those careers that appear to best fit your personal profile.


Unlike other services we will rank the careers by degree of fit and you can accept or reject them as you go along.


Using this technique we will rapidly learn more about your likes and dislikes and fast forward you to a short list of options that you can explore more deeply in the next step of our program step #2 know more.
