The Career Management Report will assist you in finding your career direction by helping you begin in defining a critical element for your success: Your Occupational / Behavioural Style. Research suggests that different behavioural styles excel and are attracted to different occupations.
Research suggests that 50-80 percent of all employed adults are in the wrong job or career. The Career Management Report helps you make career decisions and plan your changes by clarifying the job expectations, identifying the reasons for any inner conflict, revealing stressors experienced in your past or present jobs and in analysing your perception of your ‘ideal job.’ In addition, it provides a list of occupations [and related O*NET Job Codes] that require the behaviours that most closely match your natural style.

Research has identified 322 jobs that are held by 95% of the workforce. Of these 322, 71 require only a high school education; and 251 require two or more years of higher education.
Basic Needs and Wants
The needs and wants section of the Career Management Report will indicate what behavioural needs must be met for performance at an optimum level. You will learn more about your strengths and weaknesses. By understanding those weaknesses that may be hindering performance, you can develop an action plan to manage, mitigate or reduce them.
Ideal Work Environment Perceptions
This section of the Career Management Report compares your perception of your ideal environment with the environment best suited for your inherent traits. By identifying your ideal work environment, your report will identify specific duties and responsibilities that you enjoy and will also make you aware of those that create frustration. It will list how the job requires you to respond to problems and challenges, influence others, deal with activity levels, respond to rules set by others and accommodate quality expectations.
