Birkman Self-Assessment

Understanding who you are, what you're good at and what you want out of your career is the first step in uncovering potential career paths or making a career change. Not only will this information help you identify opportunities best suited for you, it will also help you prepare effective cover letters and resumes and communicate your personal brand.

You can learn about yourself through a number of ways, from answering questions (like those listed in the ‘Resources’ section here) to completing formal psychometric assessments. Whichever path you choose, the more you know about yourself, the more likely you are to get the career you really want!

The Birkman Method Assesment for UBC Sauder Alumni

The Birkman Method - UBC Sauder

The Birkman Method is the only assessment that measures an individual’s underlying Needs, which, when fulfilled, provide the comfort and motivation for you to be productive and satisfied in your career and life by combining behavioural and occupational data into one assessement.  The Birkman Method is distinct because it taps into what an individual believes about “most people” around them, providing a unique glimpse into your perception of both yourself and others.  There are many factors that affect a person’s career performance and satisfaction. Just looking at motivations doesn’t give the full picture.
