Based on assessment results, parents report improvement in how they interpret the personality proclivities of their teen after consultation. Specifically, they see how the unique talents and interests of the teen can translate into a significant career. They often report that they have wondered how their teen would adapt to the adult and work world. After consultation they understand the root of their teen’s behaviors and how their teen has already made adaptations in his/her life to overcome weaknesses. Upon reviewing this history, it becomes clear to parents that their teen is highly likely to continue successfully using their strengths and adapting for weaknesses in the same way throughout his/her life. When reviewing career roles typical of others like their teen from assessments based on decades of research, they also see how their teen is likely to act successfully throughout his/her future. Both teens and parents seem quite relieved to gain this insight.
Beyond Just College Major Choice
While I started career consulting with the main purpose of helping clients build focus around a career that they will love, I have found that the insight gained from career assessments has yielded enhanced understanding and communication among parents and teens. As a parent, have you felt unsure about how your teen’s interests, skills and overall personality could lead to college and career success? Have you worried about whether your teen will ever discover career success because you feel some of his/her behaviors or past decisions illuminate a future trend resulting in your teen being too unusual to “fit in?” At EPIC Career, our gold standard career assessments will reveal exactly how your teen’s responses relate to responses of individuals who have reported success in particular career fields. In addition, we help you better understand your teen such that a lifetime of success in particular career fields becomes clear. If you seek this level of insight about your teen, we at EPIC Career are here to help.
