Discover and develop critical work skills

Quote, Paul Watson

TruTalent Skills

TruTalent™ Skills, part of the TruTalent suite, looks at the skills that are critical in both the workplace and for learning. Ensure individuals are prepared and work-ready with a greater understanding of their skillset and ways to develop those skills, as well as access to our searchable career database and Indeed job search.

Show individuals what their top aptitudes and soft skills are, how they can be built over time, and their relationship to career selection. When retakes are charted over time, individuals can see their skillset – and opportunities – grow.

TruTalent Skills provides insight into the complex skills identified as critical for learning and employment success. 15 distinct skill facets comprise five skills within the report: conscientiousness, creativity, critical thinking, leadership and social-emotional. Along with their results, they’ll find details for each skill, ways to develop independent skills, a list of careers that match their top skills, and included job search.

For an even greater understanding of each student, TruTalent Skills works together with TruTalent Personality and TruTalent Intelligences to reveal different aspects of an individual’s talents, gifts and preferences, as well as leading to the best possible career matches using Human eSources Career Matching Technology™.
