Career Leader Assessment Tool

Career Leader is an online self-assessment tool designed specifically for business students by two career psychologists who have previously worked with MBA students at Harvard Business School.

The tool assesses students’ business interests, motivators and skills through three different questionnaires. Results are then compared to the ‘ideal’ profiles of a variety of business careers.

Students who complete the online tool will receive a detailed individual report which provides the questionnaire results highlighting the potential career paths and organisational cultural fit. The online tool also provides detailed occupational information under My Career Match.

"I really value the CV, Linkedin, interview techniques and support the AGSM Career Development team provided to me. In particular, the team provided me with a fundamental change in direction of my CV and the interview technique support. This was provided over a four week dialogue of support and advice. The result was that I really understood where I could improve and secured a fantastic role at a major Australian brand. I strongly recommend you reach out to the team who are really there to help you succeed."
