Vocational Research/Vocational Evaluation

Vocational research or vocational evaluation is a vital process used by the experts at Laura M. Wilson & Associates Inc. to evaluate the vocational interests, skills, and abilities of a person. We also help people understand the functional impact of a disability they might have on the jobs they can or cannot do. Our experts may also let you know about assistive technologies, accommodations, and devices that can help in eliminating barriers to employment.

Clients Benefit the Most

Every step of the vocational research process is beneficial for the clients as they learn about their strengths and weaknesses. The indication of their strengths helps the clients to feel more self-confident and more empowered to handle career-related decision making by themselves. This confidence helps them to learn new stuff later on and get a dream job they always hoped of getting but couldn’t get due to some reasons.

The Goal

The key aim of vocational research is to help people re-entering the workforce to discover the areas in which they are strong and need no further learning and areas in which they need support, re-learning, or proper training. Once these are discovered, the path to a job goal clears quickly.

What Assessments are Done?

Though the nature of the assessments that must be done on an individual varies from one case to another, the following process is adhered to, in most cases. First, the academic abilities of a person are determined. Then the interests are discovered, and finally, the key skills possessed by a person are evaluated. These skills include everything from the aptitude of the person to motor ability, size & color discrimination to visual acuity, and even skills needed to do mechanical, industrial, clerical, and business management jobs.

What Next?

At the end of the vocational research process, the right educational/training or skill development institution is hunted, and a vocational plan is developed according to the identified skills and interests of a person. After a person completes a training/educational or skill development course, he or she is steered towards a career option, he or she is aiming for while keeping a close eye on the progress. If you are wondering how long does a vocational evaluation takes, you won’t get a specific answer. It differs from one case to the other.
