90-Second Quiz Uses Images to Match Your Unique Personality Profile with the Best Careers that Don't Require a College Degree
SkillPointe, the number one resource for career guidance, training, scholarships and best local skills-based jobs, today announced the launch of StartPointe, the world’s fastest personality profile and career-matching solution focused on skilled careers not requiring a four-year college degree.
“Many different career assessment tools are too long and complicated for today’s busy students and job seekers,” said Todd Wilson, SkillPointe founder. "Thanks to its unique image-based and fast-paced design, StartPointe makes career discovery simple, fast and fun!"
The one-of-a-kind solution is not only fast, but also highly sophisticated, based on a proprietary mobile-first format pioneered by Traitify by Paradox, part of the leading conversational recruiting software. Years of research has shown that some personality traits can be predictive of success for a candidate in a particular role. This innovative tool drills deep into individual personality traits and matches them with a variety of skilled careers that match your unique personality type.
“This tool is a great starting point for busy working adults and students exploring different career options," said James Franchi, SkillPointe CEO. "It provides job seekers with a refined list of careers that fit their personality profile, which makes the process more efficient, especially in the early stages when people may not know where to start.”
As job seekers dive deeper into suggested careers on SkillPointe, they find a wealth of additional insights, including salaries, job responsibilities, current demand, future growth, training needed and what certification or state license is required to get started.
