Careers Guidance Report
Private and Confidential

Mr Simon Pearson
The following assessment has been produced by whichCAREER.com. It
uses a combination of validated psychometric measures and has been
written to assist you in your choice of career and occupation.
You should find that this report is a valuable aid, as are all
psychometric measures, when used in conjunction with other sources
of data. It is not intended to be used in isolation. One of its
greatest benefits is to pinpoint areas of strengths which you
should follow up.
The report is divided into three sections. The first is a
personality profile, summarising your personality in relation to
the workplace. The second section is a summary of your occupational
preferences, based on your reported interests. Finally, the report
makes recommendations on the fields of endeavour that you should
investigate. These should be pursued at the levels indicated in the
career preferences section of the report.
The report shows remarkable accuracy if the questionnaires have
been answered honestly. Even if one or two errors have occurred,
the measures have been designed to minimise their effect. The report
however will be invalid if there has been a deliberate attempt to

You are an influential and persuasive leader with a logical and systematic
approach. You are a good communicator, able to draw out others' opinions
and to bring them around to your way of thinking.
You pay attention to details, rely on facts and need things to be correct.
Others may view you as somewhat of a perfectionist.
You may vacillate when taking a decision, only finally deciding when
you are absolutely convinced that the decision you are taking is the correct

You are open to change and you are willing to accept direction. You
like to please. Being outgoing, you want to get on a "first name basis"
as quickly as possible with new acquaintances.
You are strongest in specialist or technical roles. When your goals
are clear, you are a self starter, and you generally tackle projects and
tasks, once you understand them, with enthusiasm.
You probably avoid making unpopular or harsh decisions, and you generally
take an indirect approach when directing others.
You need to feel both accepted by the group and to have some influence
over it. You want social recognition, but you also want others to recognise
your special skills or expertise. You are motivated by money, both for
its status and for spending in your social sphere. Your drive to achieve
is coupled with a drive to avoid error. You require variety in the people
you meet and in your activities, both at work and socially.
Your aspirations are high. You are interested in preparing yourself
for occupations that require post-secondary or academic education, but
you would be willing to settle for a lower level of training.

power, authority, freedom and recognition for the work that you are doing.
You want to do things in a systematic, logical manner. Security and clear
objectives are important to you.

and it is likely that you will still find it somewhat difficult to work
