PRISM Career Explorer...

Making Life Decisions, Simple

Study planning, career planning and decision-making involves learning about careers, types of work, educational requirements, and job functions. To help students do this easily, PRISM Career Explorer provides instant access to a comprehensive database of around 500 Major fields of study and 1,000 occupations. These have been uniquely profiled to provide insights into what behaviors and aptitudes are required in order for a candidate to be successful.

Students and graduates need to be able to make informed career decisions that takes into consideration not only their eligibility through qualifications, but more importantly their suitability to a job and its particular work environment. This dual approach not only increases the possibilities of smooth and secure career development but also ensures that students will find their chosen career satisfying and fulfilling.

PRISM Career Explorer provides a robust and detailed assessment that:

  • Identifies behavioral preferences or strengths which determine the suitability to any given occupation.
  • Measures aptitude and how much one would enjoy doing specific work.
  • Indicates work environment match which examines the range of organisational cultures and working environments that one would be best suited to.

TAKE A TOUR

This is a link to a free tour of the online research portal, however, you will first be guided to a registration page. The portal you will view will open as a seperate tab and is a generic sample which will not feature any personalized results. You will be able to explore the O*NET careers database, the list of major subjects, as well as view a sample report. The resources library and the behavioral and aptitude comparisons to the careers database and college majors will be disabled. If after you have completed the tour you are interested in unclocking all the features of the tool, you may return to the Canvas4Careers page and select 'Purchase A Report' which will divert you to PayPal. Once payment has been completed, your full, personalized report will be unlocked and you will gain access to the entirety of the research portal.

Neuroscience

The science behind PRISM is a unique way of identifying people's behavior preferences based on brain activity. Unlike traditional psychometric instruments, PRISM approaches human behavior from the perspective of neuroscience, rather than psychological theory. This exciting online tool takes advantage of some of the most up-to-date neuroscientific discoveries.

Neuroscience is playing an increasingly important role in commerce. The remarkable complexity of the brain has revealed that:

  • Human beings cannot credibly be divided up into a fixed number of types who are unable to act outside of their preferences.
  • People can no longer be labelled or pigeon-holed into specific 'boxes' and personality is no longer a strong enough indicator to predict how a person will behave in any given situation.
  • Contemporary behavior profiling cannot credibly provide people with 'scores', based on right or wrong answers.

PRISM provides users with a powerful, graphic explanation for why they approach situations and individuals in different ways.

Each PRISM 'map' is therefore, a picture of the user as a unique individual.

 

The World of Recruitment

If we can align the way students and graduates plan for study and career options in the same way that successful recruitment is managed, then young people will be better equipped to compete in the job market and to find their pathway to successful and satisfying careers. 

Like other parts of business, recruitment is rapidly being transformed through the digital age and companies are increasingly becoming more analytically driven, and therefore more discerning. This phenomenon is crucial both for recruiters and for candidates as there is much evidence of increasing recruitment failure rates.

A study by Michigan State University concluded that the traditional CV and interview process is only 14% accurate in predicting a successful hire. Suitability matching, that is, behavior, aptitudes, core traits and work environment matching are far more effective predictors of a candidate’s fit to both a role and to an organization. 

PRISM Brain mapping is widely used by organizations to support recruitment strategies through a simple, fast and highly accurate process. Job role benchmarking and suitability matching are becoming the new methods by which employers are transforming their recruitment strategies.

This same methodology is now available through C4C. By understanding how organizations make good hiring decisions, C4C applies the same approach in order to help students make good study and career decisions.

How We Can Help You

PRISM Career Explorer is not one product, it is a comprehensive suite of online tools that support study and career exploration, easily and effectively. These tools allow the user to 'explore' and research career and study opportunities through a step-by-step online process. This enhances, supports and streamlines an establishment's career counseling services by giving both the student and the counselor a step by step process, procedure and guidance. Whilst this does not replace the role for counseling, PRISM Career Explorer empowers students and graduates to be more self-sufficient and work through much of the decision making by themselves whilst at the same time learning more about themselves.

Taken together, this process can streamline the workflow and enable career counsellors to support critical decision making rather than helping students through the whole process.

In addition, PRISM provides practitioner programs which augment the online tools and experience of students, thus strengthening the capacity and role of career counselling personnel.
