Presence Possibilities aims to help individuals and families succeed through professional assessments and consultations to identify their personality, unique talents, culture, learning style, ideal college major and career; and enable them to utilize their talents to their fullest potential so they may serve and lead in their communities.
1. What is the difference between the various assessment packages?
College Major & Career Exploration
This package will assess your personality, personal strengths, and areas of interest to determine suitable college majors/occupations that have a high potential for providing a fulfilling career. The consultant will also work with you to search for the best colleges for that particular major of your choice.
Learning Style & Multiple Intelligences
This package is beneficial, particularly for 4th to 8th Graders, in understanding their learning styles, strengths, and potentials. The assessment results reveal a student’s preferred learning styles in processing information. The consultant will provide parent(s) with coaching tips and advice on how to develop the best possible environment their child may learn best. As a result, this package will enhance their learning potential, school performances, and the parent and child relationship. The information learned will give parents an idea of what types of careers and environments their child may enjoy.
College Major or Career Path Change
For return clients, the consultant will re-evaluate the previous reports and determine whether or not they need to retake any inventory tests. The consultant will re-identify any new interests and passions together with the client.
For new clients who are considering changing jobs or careers, or are looking for consultation; we recommend scheduling a one-on-one consultation meeting. Additionally, certain suitable inventory tests may be required before the consultation meeting can take place.
