Q: What resources does Birkman provide to help me find the right career fit?
A: In addition to providing career matches with our work personality test, we provide links to O*Net in our reports so that you can explore the salary, demand, education, and skills associated with roles that you are considering. Birkman reports also provide a wealth of Insights reports that can assist with your job search and interviewing skills.
Q: How are you able to make recommendations for career matches?
A: Our recommendations for career matches aren’t just based on your interest in the role, they are also based off of how similar your entire behavioral and perceptual profile matches to others that are tenured and successful in the role. Our career assessment data indicates whether you will like the job function, if your natural style complements the role, and if you will take a unique approach to succeeding at the job function.
Q: How is Birkman different from other career assessments?
A: Along with career information from the employment personality test, Birkman also provides key reports that help you develop self-awareness as you approach a new role including what strengths you bring to the job and what you need from others to be as successful as possible. These insights give you a leg up to perform at your best.
Q: How can organizations benefit from career exploration data for employees?
A: Organizations that prioritize employee retention can leverage our career data to provide opportunities for development that reduce turnover and hiring expenses. Career exploration data can help your team coach employees in their career path within the organization, especially younger staff or those considering a mid-career change.
"I've helped more than 3,300 high school students and young adults navigate their post-high school path using Birkman. By uncovering their own unique wiring, I show them how to translate those strengths and passions into a fulfilling career as we work through their college counseling. Teenagers have notoriously short attention spans, and Birkman's Interests, which measure passion for different roles and tasks, is just long enough to produce the data I need to guide them. Birkman is an essential tool that supports the success of my business."

"I am a Birkman fan. As a Master Certified Professional, I’ve administered The Birkman Method to more than a thousand people and trained about 1500 others to 'work the Birkman.' It’s more powerful than the other tools I've encountered out there, with more robust validity. I use it when teaching my ‘Career by Design’ through UCLA’s business school and when I'm teaching Inclusive Leadership programs to a range of clients. Each person's Birkman report provides non-judgmental language that helps people hone in on their strengths while becoming more aware of their biases and expectations."
