We spent a lot of time talking to employers, employment counsellors and youth. They helped us come up with competencies that are important when finding, getting and keeping a job. Competencies are things like communication, computer literacy and professionalism.
The Self-Assessment tool will help you identify which competencies you already have and which ones you might need to improve. It will also give you the chance to choose personal strategies for developing each competency area. At the end of the assessment you will get a summary of your competencies and strategies that you can work on.
This Self-Assessment Tool is a pilot program. This means that we want to know if this information is useful to you and if it helped you find, get and keep a job. Six months after you complete this Self-Assessment we will send you an email asking how you are doing with finding, getting and keeping a job and if the Self-Assessment was useful to you.
