Skillscan Testimonials:

The training was well-organized, clear and thorough. Lesah’s examples were great, and her answers to questions were open and thoughtful. Lesah was inspiring…[my] clients found the results very useful for resume building.” – Dorothy Bisbee, June 2013 SkillScan Webinar Participant

 

I appreciated going through the Career Driver section by section and getting a thorough overview of how to read it and what to take from it. It’s helped a client be much more articulate about his strengths and preferences, which is helping him prepare for interviews.” – June 2013 SkillScan Webinar Participant

 

SkillScan is the best tool on the market to take a close look at the skills you have to offer an employer, your community service, or the skills you take into self-employment. I love that it can be used with other self-assessments to strengthen and enhance your self-knowledge.” - Susan Chritton, Senior Content Expert, Identity, MyPath101

 

[My] increased understanding of the practical methods and the resources we covered have allowed me to be more confident in using the assessment with future clients.” – Nov. 2012 SkillScan Webinar Participant

 

I have administered SkillScan primarily to high school and college students. In the time that it normally takes a student to attend a lecture, a student can instead walk away from a SkillScan session with an understanding of his or her primary skill sets and the careers that utilize those skills. There is a strong emphasis on skill development and transferable skills which helps prepare students for today’s competitive market place. I recommend this tool without reservation.” - Jack Harari, Associate Director of Career Services and Industry Partnerships, Benjamin Franklin Institute of Technology

 

I administered Skill Scan to my class of sophomore plastics engineering students today. The students loved it! One said he didn’t realize he had so many skills. Another said he now had words to use to describe his experience when introducing himself to someone professionally. Even those who had a lot of skills yet to develop were excited to record them all in one place. It was a great confidence booster!” - Kimberly Bilawchuk, Career Counselor/Adjunct Faculty, UMass Lowell

 

I found the entire program to be excellent. The breakdown of the job seekers was a helpful way to think about the clients and their needs. I also find the the tool very comprehensive and am anxious to use it. Your webinars will make that much easier – June 2011 Skillscan Webinar Participant

   

The training was well organized, highly informative and allowed time for Q&A. Her slides were excellent and offered as part of the webinar for later review. In addition, Lesah provides ideas for discussing results with clients along with a case study. Her years as a career counselor make her sensitive to how well the assessment works for both the counselor and the client. – Sue Aiken, TSA Career Coach and Private Practice
