Parents on the Journey

A child will make many decisions that will alter the course of their life. Two of these life decisions are what subject to choose for their college education and what career to select after graduation. Both decisions are inextricably linked, yet are usually looked at in isolation. So what should parents be aware of as they prepare to embark on this journey with their child?

  • Enjoying the subject a student is majoring in leads to a more rewarding and successful college experience. This mitigates the risk of lost time and expense from either changing majors, dropping out, or failing to use their qualifications after graduation.
  • Informed decisions and research into what a chosen career actually entails leads to a smoother transition from college to work as well as increased chances of successful career progression.
  • Empowering a young person with concrete practical knowledge of what to expect in the workplace helps them build confidence and drive.
  • Preparing graduates and young adults for the challenges and demands of a college environment or workplace avoids disillusionment, dissatisfaction and undue anxiety.

PRISM Career Explorer is a convenient, easy to use, online resource that provides instructive, insightful information that can empower students and graduates to take control of their future - one step at a time.

College study and career planning requires young people to perform four core tasks:

  • Understand themselves and their natural strengths.
  • Research the full spectrum of careers that would allow them to make full use of their abilities.
  • Learn how to communicate their unique skill set to potential universities and employers.
  • Adapt their behavior and harness their strengths to suit different situations and environments, such as a demanding workplace or educational establishment.

How does PRISM Career Explorer support you?

Neuroscience

PRISM Brain Mapping 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 neuroscience discoveries to provide users with a series of 'maps' which are representations of how their brain prefers to work.

PRISM Career Explorer thus measures behavioral preferences.

It measures the intensity of a person's expressed preference for a range of behaviors and the work activities related to those behaviours.
