What you'll Accomplish

Getting Started

Once you have taken the MOST Career Assessment, your journey begins with a deep dive into your career needs, hopes, and preferences. This first, crucial step, is designed to take your sense of inspiration and professional identity to the next level by creating a new and compelling career narrative comprised of your core values, purpose, and talents. You will also be asked to observe and reflect upon characteristics of your current roles to deepen self-knowledge about careers where you are bound to make a difference and feel most energized.

Charting your Course

Next, we'll get strategic! Drawing upon an analysis of over 1,000 OD careers, we'll dive into  the top skills that are required by professionals who share your preferences. We'll also take a close look at your Competency Report, and triangulate your strengths and interests in key skill areas with actual careers you’re more likely to enjoy. If you prefer working for an employer, you'll review curated job descriptions and answer key questions about job characteristics that deepen your interests. If you prefer working as an independent consultant, you'll review curated consulting websites that match your preference. 

Plugging In & Standing Out

Just as it's important to have a strategy for finding the right career, it's equally important to make it easy for the right people and opportunities to find you! In this last step of our journey we'll develop your online "thought leadership" presence, as well as a robust professional support system of like-minded and like-hearted individuals from around the world. If you are interested in working for an employer, we'll imagine what your resume could and should express. If your heart is set on independent consulting, we'll help you draft your unique consulting framework.
