For many years Dick Knowdell ran a large career counseling and outplacement center in Silicon Valley. When a new client would come into the office, Dick would have them use the Career Values Card Sort, first thing.
Within 10 minutes, Dick would learn what was truly important to the client. As Dick said, "It was a great way to quickly and accurately get to know the new client."
In that same time, the client would begin to understand what was most important to them and what their priorities in life were.
Is making as much money as possible the most important value to you, or perhaps helping people is more important?
Is work-family balance important to you? How about honesty and integrity.
Everyone of us has values that guide us through life, whether we know it or not. But a key to job satisfaction is doing work and working in a place that is in-line with your values.
As Dick Knowdell is fond of saying, the Career Values Card Sort has "high face value." What that means is, as you do this exercise, it becomes obvious to you, what is so important. You don't need a computer or a test to show you. The cards tell the story right in front of you.
Each card has a value printed on it, along with a short description.
You simply sort through this deck of cards, and organize them into five stacks based on how important each value is.
Then you take the cards with the values that are most important to you, and you rank those, 1 through 8. These are your top, most important values.
Next you write those top 8 values onto the included work sheet. (the online version does this for you).
Then, using that same work sheet, you list your career options.
Now, using the worksheet, you rate each career option on how well it meets your values, 1 through 8. The worksheet shows you how to do this. It's simple.
In this way you can see if a career option is a good fit for you.
