New Career Profiling Tool Makes Life a Breeze


New Career Profiling Tool Makes Life a Breeze for Careers Advisers

Auckland, November 2008 – a new online career profiling tool helps students choose a career path that matches their natural gifts and talents.

“With limited time and resources, Careers Advisers will find MYCAREERMATCH very affordable with no accreditation required, and no special software to install” says CEO Nathan Chanesman.

“Assessments are conducted via the Internet and Career Profiles are emailed immediately to the Student with a copy going to the Careers Adviser. Students can complete from home or school”.

“In just 15 minutes students discover their personal style, what they are naturally good at, and the careers they are likely to succeed in”.

Mr Chanesman said that even though there are a number of online career assessments, most had followed very similar formats and he wanted MYCAREERMATCH to offer something new to students and Careers Advisers.

“We wanted to give students a new experience, not just in relation to how they chose a course subject, but also in how their subject choice applied to their natural gifts and talents, through to their career choice. We asked the question “if a student chose this course, would they be naturally suited to the career path that this course leads to”.

Good question when making a career pathway decision.

Priced to meet limited budgets, MYCAREERMATCH is very affordable for schools and Colleges. Using our ‘Not for Profit’ policy, Site License fees are scaled to reflect the size of the schools. Averaging just a few dollars per report, Site Licenses offer unlimited profiling for Students, School Leavers and Teachers.

MYCAREERMATCH does not conflict with any of the education tools Careers Advisers may be using, and free access to Workbooks, Power Points, Teachers and Parents Guides is included in the Site License.

“We are delighted that Careers Advisers are recommending MyCareerMatch to their colleagues” says Chanesman.

“This is an excellent tool for students to provide option driven career paths. They gain an understanding of themselves but are still given the power to choose an area in which they have the most interest” said Stuart Jones, Careers Advisers at Penrith Christian School.

“Career Reports include valuable information that helps in job interviews and resume writing” said Roger Mckim, Careers Adviser, Green Point Christian College.

“The website contains a wealth of information and career videos and is extremely user friendly for students and teachers” said Anne Dequemin, Career Adviser at the Charlton Christian College.
