This instrument is designed to help clients identify and clarify their career values. The cards sample 41 aspects of career-related preferences such as

  • time
  • freedom
  • precision work
  • excitement
  • recognition, and public contact.

The client is asked to sort each card into five categories (from always valued to never valued).

The instructional booklet includes guidelines for counsellors and group facilitators, an overview of values and their role in career decision making, instructions for the individual user, and five supplementary activities for further clarification of career values. The materials are designed for use with persons contemplating a change of career as well as with job seekers.
