More precise career matching.   Unlike individually administered tests, PinPoint offers more precise career matching  by fully integrating the results from all of its tests to determine how well-suited the user is to a particular career.  Career possibilities are based on any combination of the six aspects of the user's personality determined from the self-assessment tests.

Engages the student.   PinPoint's high level of interactivity and dynamic presentation engages the student in the career exploration process so they become an active participant, piquing their interest and minimizing passivity.  The power and flexibility to explore "what if" scenarios and see how their personality matches a career gives them control over the exploration process, gets them involved, and inspires them to think about their personality and careers.

Meets the needs of the student.  Students can use PinPoint to learn about their personality and get career guidance at their own pace.  This is especially important for students who prefer self-exploration without the assistance of a counselor.

Accommodates time constraints dot.GIF (104 bytes)

Fits in students' busy schedules.  PinPoint is comprised of several discrete modules so the student can do as much or as little as they'd like, making it easy to fit into their busy schedules and accommodating varying attention spans.  PinPoint automatically saves all of the information provided by the user, even for tests they haven't completed, so the user can return later to pick up where they left off.

Teaches about self and careers dot.GIF (104 bytes)

Gives insight and educates.   Students learn about the multiple dimensions of their personality, which can be applied to many areas of their life.  In addition, students are introduced to a large variety of the most current professional careers.

Benefits the School PinPoint increases student retention



Keeps students in school

Studies show that students are less likely to drop out of school if they have a defined career direction.  Using PinPoint, students learn about their personality and see why they are better suited to some careers than others.  As a result, they can discover a career that is right for them.  With a career choice they can feel good about and the confidence that they're well suited to the career they've chosen, they have the motivation to stay in school.
