Why Is Career Self-Assesssment/Self-Exploration
So Important to Career Reinvention?
Many people who are considering a career transition
or reinvention have never taken the time to evaluate
their skills, values, interests, and other parameters that
are important to them in their life and work.
They often have gone directly from college into the
working world, taking on role after role, and never
really assessing what makes them happy. It is only
when they find themselves miserable, frustrated, and
unhappy that they begin to question everything.
It is at this moment that career self-exploration is so
important -Before you can change careers or transition
to a new field, you must go back to the basics - knowing
who you are, and mapping out a strategy for a
transition that fits who you are. This is where self-
assessment fits in. I like to refer to it as "self-
exploration" and not "self-assessment," which frankly
sounds too clinical.
What Is Career Self-Assessment/Self-Exploration?
Self-exploration is a period in your life when you step
back from your busy, day-to-day activities and look
inside to take stock of knowing who you are (a sense of
identity) and what is important to you.
It is usually one of the first steps (and in my mind, the
MOST important one) in career reinvention. It is a
process by which you gather information about
yourself (skills, strengths, interests, personal brand,
and communication style) in order to make better
career decisions, and help you decide how to transition
into a new field.
During this phase, it is important to work with a
professional who is trained in administering and
interpreting career assessments. While working with a
career counselor or career coach, you'll go through a
variety of formal (objective) and informal (subjective)
assessments to gather information that will be helpful
in the career reinvention process.
Objective assessments are typically developed by
assessment experts and provide a third-party
viewpoint. Usually, a career coach or assessment
expert reviews and interprets the results with the
Subjective assessments tend to be more informal,
such as a homework assignment or an exercise that you
would do by yourself (questions, journaling,
visualization exercises, meditation, and obtaining
feedback from others). This will help you get a clear
understanding of what is important to you and to help
you envision the future.
Why Is Any of This Important?
When you step out of the day-to-day grind and slow
down and look inside, you begin to get in touch with a
part of yourself which can't be tapped during the busy
