Morning Keynote Speaker
Richard Knowdell, NCDA Fellow

He has developed four popular career assessments that have been translated into nine languages. Knowdell will be presenting on the Transferable Skill Assessment Tool That Even Works With Resistant Clients
Some job search and career changing clients are often suspicious and resistant to traditional paper-and-pencil or on-line assessment tools. Among the host of “informal” assessment tools available involve using card sorts. These tools are especially effective with dislocated workers, welfare-to-work clients and military members transitioning to the private sector. In this fast paced session, the presenter will administer and interpret a card sort assessment tool with the workshop attendees.
- receive a free assessment tool they can use over and over again with clients
- learn which skills to highlight in job interviews
- learn which skills to include on their resume
- learn which skills to leave off the resume
- learn which skills lead to client burnout
- learn a technique that clients can use to quickly identify their motivated skills
