Your ProValues exercise

Instructions

ProValues (formerly known as the Career Pursuit Profile) is an interactive tool, providing a framework to help you evaluate choices in your career. The first step is identifying your career values. What leads to satisfaction in the work place? After the values are identified, we will ask you to assess how past and current roles have fulfilled each of your values.

The final step is to project how your values will be fulfilled in future roles. The intent of the exercise is to spark reflection and conversations about future jobs, to better understand what a role entails and in some cases, what it facilitates in your personal life. It can be hard to gauge what a job is like based on job descriptions alone.

Unlike other job evaluation tools, this exercise doesn’t apply to a single snapshot of your life. Instead, you are able to return to this tool as you uncover new information, particularly as you increase your understanding of future roles. The exercise challenges you to evaluate choices over time, since your criteria may change. While it requires a fairly thorough undertaking on your part, ultimately, it will serve to help you identify a role which maximizes your satisfaction each step of the way.

Please follow the instructions below, and you’ll be well on your way to learning about how your values fit with future roles you’re thinking about!
