The ‘BullsEye’ Career Program is simply a package of 3 tests and 5 consultations that identify your “best fit” career and in only a month. That’s how long it takes to complete the tests and get the consultations about the results. The unique package of test reports is selected from only the top career test publishers. The consultations consultant to interpret, apply and synthesize the results for your specific situation requires and, therefore is conducted only by, a career expert.
This ‘best fit’ career program assesses three facets about you:
- your interests – what you like
- your abilities – what you are good at and what’s driving in you; and
- your personality – what meets your style needs and utilizes your style strengths.
If you took any single one of these career assessments (personality, abilities or interests) you would get a list of careers matching that one aspect of you. A career interest test would match your interests to occupations you’d like. An ability test would match your capabilities or self-described skills with jobs you are capable of performing well. A personality test would match careers with your personal style. But, each test would miss those careers and occupations that are only produced by the other tests.
When you take all three of these career tests, you will find a longer list of matching careers. But, you will also find that a few occupations are the same on all three assessments. In other words, all three tests produce some career results that intersect with each other. It’s the intersection of career results from these three tests that is the foundation of the BullsEye Career Program.
Let’s look at this diagram to better understand how the BullsEye Career program works:
Each line in this diagram represents a the ‘best fit’ careers for you as generated by a single career assessment – interest test, personality test or ability test. When you complete one assessment, it creates a “line of careers” that suits you. For example, an interest test might produce these careers: elementary school teacher, carpenter, non-profit director and bank manager (represented by one line) while an ability test would produce this career line-up: facilities manger, corporate director and non-profit director.
Notice that the lines of suitable careers from each test bisects the target from a different angle. This suggests that each test produces a career list that is different and distincet from the other two. That’s because each test utilizes a different measurement perspective (or angle) to produce career matching results. Those tests pertaining to the BullsEye Career program use the following test types: (1) objective task modules to measure abilities, (2) subjective scale ranging from very high to very low to measure interests and (3) a subjective dyad choice (a or b) to measure personal style or personality.
Notice also that the lines on the diagram do not run parallel to each other. They, in fact intersect in the green colored zone in the middle. This middle zone is the BullsEye. This diagram suggests that tests used in the BullsEye Career Program produce career list results that not completely distinct from each other. This is most important feature about the program.
Notice that the lines intersect in the middle. When you find the same career or occupation appearing on all three of the assessments, you have “career intersection”. Careers that “intersect” or appear on all three tests are depicted by the green zone or in the bullseye. When 3 test produce the same or almost identical careers it most strongly indicates that this narrow selection of careers are clearly the ‘ best fit’ for you. As you can see, this approach takes the ‘guess work’ and the ‘trial and error’ of out of career decisions.
The BullsEye Career Program does indeed take most of the guesswork out of career decisions. And, with it there is no need for trial and error. You can get it “right” the first time. You can know the right career for you with this program . . . and know it with certainty.
If, however, you are satisfied to simply “hit” the target board (anywhere in the white area) to reduce the trial and error approach, you need only take one career assessment test. To hit the yellow or blue zones and take most of the guesswork out of finding a career, it is recommended that you take at least 2 career tests. . . . But . . . if you truly want to hit the bull’s eye and eliminate both guess work or ‘trial and error’ from choosing a career, take the BullsEye Career Program.
BullsEye Career Program has been called many things over the years: OPTiM’s Best Fit Career or OPTiM’s Complete Best Fit Career. There is also a student version of this program as well: OPTIM’s Career and College Success Tests + College Career Services or OPTIM’s Complete BEST FIT CAREER Package for STUDENTs. Pick any one of these career programs to find your BullsEye Career. And, know what to be with certainty.
