IBM is collaborating with MyInnerGenius, one of the world’s leading assessment companies, to help you determine the job roles you will love — careers that are a great match for you – even if you’ve never considered a role in IT.
This program includes assessments in areas such as proofing, reading, basic math and problem-solving — as well as personality traits — to help you find job roles that fit your natural skills, abilities and personality. There is no studying involved here: Regardless of your education or background, these assessments will help you find a role where you have the best chance to be successful and advance in your career.
After you take the assessments, we will provide you with a list of roles and training paths that are a great fit for you.
Imagine having a personal career coach that would be able to do that? And this service is entirely free to you.
In addition, you have the chance to earn IBM Digital Badges that will connect you with job opportunities. IBM Digital Badges display real-time job listings which match your skills. You can search by location, salary and company and even apply directly for a job right from within your search.
And you can opt in to IBM’s Talent Match service. Talent Match is an IBM program which allows employers to find you and make a connection. All of this is completely free and entirely confidential. You control your data and you can share it if you would like.
* NOTE: Before you begin, we recommend you find a location where you will not be distracted or interrupted. The entire assessment takes about an hour, so give yourself plenty of time so you do not feel rushed. This is your time to discover the many possibilities that await you.
