Created by communication professionals for communication professionals, the career evaluator™ is a free self-assessment app that assesses individual knowledge and experience against the Global Standard of the Profession, best practices and the Cropley Competency Model for Strategic Communication Management.
The app will help you to:
Once installed on your device, launch the career evaluator™ and create an account. You can also login with Facebook.
Once you have completed the registration process you can begin the self-assessment. Plan enough time to complete your assessment in one sitting. This should take around 30 minutes. Select any one of seven areas of competency from the app dashboard. To complete the assessment, you will need to complete all seven areas of competency.
You will be asked to use a set of criteria to indicate your self-assessment of knowledge and skill against each area. The criteria can be found in the top right-hand corner of the app where you see the information icon.
On completion you will receive a snapshot of your strengths and development opportunities and you will be able to download a full PDF report of your self-assessment mapped against the competencies and descriptors.
If you enjoyed using the career evaluator™ please take a few moments to rate it in the App Store and Google Play and share it with your colleagues.
Discuss your results with your manager, mentor or a trusted colleague. You may also find it helpful to ask your manager or colleagues to complete the assessment and rate you against some or all of the competencies. Coming together and comparing their ratings with your self-ratings can provide valuable insight into your level of competency.
Next, you may wish to develop a personal action plan to help you consolidate your development areas. An action plan template is available below.
