How do we define a successful career? Is a successful career simply a job that provides lucrative pay? Should a job be glamorous for it to be called successful? When do we say that we are successful in the kind of career path we have taken?

A successful career is more than just a high-paying job. It means finding your true calling, that is being able to do things that can give you personal and professional fulfilment. A successful career should be something that is aligned with your life visions. It should be closely incorporated to who you truly are and should uphold your personal values. It is therefore important to take the time to understand yourself even better, define core values and know your true calling.

Our personal core values play a vital role in determining career success. They define our life purpose and determine how we will do future actions. These values influence every decision we make. They are the standards to which our individuality is defined. Core values are reflected in the way we interact with people and how we handle different situations though we are unaware of these influences most of the time.

Since our career is a fundamental part of our life, it is important to make sure that our values – everything that we are – is aligned with our profession to achieve expected long-term career results. It is important to clarify our core values and to act in accordance with these core values to achieve a successful career. To define our core values, we need an outstanding personality assessment which will offer accurate results.

The Core Values Index is an outstanding human assessment which offers accurate results describing one's innate, unchanging nature. Since CVI measures a person's innate preferences instead of his or her ability to adapt to a variety of life situations and work experiences, the tool can help a person realise his or her potential. The combination of our innate nature, personality, competencies, skills and talents will determine how we will find work fulfilment.

Unlike other psychometric tests, the CVI offers a 94 percent-score reliability. It is very easy to use and takes just 10 minutes to complete. When you have completed your CVI, you'll receive your report by email. Clarity Career Management also offers workshops, coaching programs and other executive career management services to maximise your CVI advantage.
