Skills Profiling Tool questionnaire – Two sets of results
What it delivers
What do you need to work in your desired occupation?
Once you finish the questionnaire, the tool will show you two sets of results:
1) Your skills profile
Your skills profile shows your level in each skill tested, with the maximum score being 100. Once enough people have completed the questionnaire, you will also be able to compare your results with those from other people in your country, your age group or with your education level. If your level is higher than the average for the comparison group selected, the tool will show your level in green; if it is lower, it will show up in pink. Do not get too caught up with your particular score. This assessment is not an exact science, and it is only intended to give you an idea about what your strongest skills are and how your skills compare with those of other people.
2) Potential ocupations that match your skills profile
The tool allows you to explore potential occupations and see how your skills profile compares with the skills required for each occupation. The “target” icon represents the minimum level required for a given skill in a given occupation. The tool will also provide some ideas of occupations to consider. We encourage you to discuss these suggested occupations with your career guidance counsellor if you are interested in any of them, as he or she will know which of the suggested occupations you can pursue in your region, what training would be required, and where you can train.
