Warrendale, PA, February 25, 2016—The Print and Graphics Scholarship Foundation (PGSF) has partnered with Peak Focus to bring students a powerful tool called the Harrison Assessment Career Navigation System to support them in finding a career that will best suit them, as well as impact their happiness and fulfillment for many years to come.
We don't just provide them with a career report, we provide an interactive, online tool which will allow students to see more than 650 careers ranked in order according to their likes and dislikes. They'll be able to sort the careers by education levels, search for enjoyment levels related to specific careers, or explore what they would like or dislike about specific careers. They can also run reports related to their greatest strengths or likely career development issues.
“As a student, choosing a career path is one of the most important decisions of your life. You can now find a career that aligns with your interests, personality, and the things you like doing,” said Julie Scher, Managing Partner of Harrison Assessments and Founding Partner of Peak Focus. “The Harrison Assessment Career Navigation System is based on world-wide research that clearly shows that when you find this alignment, you are more than three times as likely to succeed in your career.”
“The future of the graphic communication industry depends on people—talented people to fill the gap our industry is just beginning to experience,” said John Berthelsen, Vice President of Development, PGSF. “We believe that our partnership with Harrison Assessments and Peak Focus will help students to fill this gap. Together we are building for the future.”
