A new app promises to measure people’s skills and abilities and point them towards their dream job.
Pitman Training, which has a centre in Saxon Gate West, Milton Keynes, has launched the Career MOT app and has invited people to have a go with it.
Ade Abass, the centre manager for Pitman in Milton Keynes, said; “We hope people will make a pit stop in their day to call in for a career MOT. We believe that a bit of encouragement, in a fun way, will show there are ways we can take charge of our careers, and we hope this will lead to Milton Keynes being a place full of happier workers.
“Asking if your skills are perfectly matched to the job you’re in, and if you could make use of your key character traits to help you get ahead, our Career MOTs are a chance to see how you can help yourself to be happier at work.”
After creating an avatar people then answer just a few quick questions and the app highlights assets, career characteristics, along with suggested career paths to consider. The app is available at www.pitmancareermot.com, and on iPhones, iPads and android phones.
