Understanding The Career Fit Spectrum.

The key to workplace happiness is aligning individuals skills, present and future needs through exploration of who they are, their strengths, areas of interest, and values. When these are in harmony with the requirements of the role and the organization, career fit can be achieved.

If someone isn’t working out in their job it’s probably because it’s not a good fit.

Poor fits in job commonly happen because:
- The individual doesn’t have the skills or capabilities.
- There is a mismatch between personal values and the requirements of the job.
- There are unrealistic expectations, or no shared understanding of the job requirements.

Elements Of A Good Career Fit

 Who we work with

Icon - Organizations


No matter what the situation, an organization’s success or failure is determined by its people. From the veteran to the newest entrant into its workforce, “fit” is the key. To find out how your organization would benefit from partnering with CareerTrails, consider the following:

  • Is your staff achieving its full potential?
  • Are your leaders effective?
  • Have you set future leaders up for success?
  • Do you have the right mix of people in the right jobs?
  • Are your selection practices yielding hires who fit?
  • Is your workforce engaged?


Icon - Individuals


Whether you are you exploring a first career choice, unhappy in your current role or looking for a career change, we can help you align your unique qualities with desired workplace opportunities. Our approach is 
a combination of both the pragmatic and the personal. It starts with conducting a preliminary needs analysis to ensure on both sides there is a good fit and a clear alignment of expectations regarding outcomes. Delivery is personalized and tailored to meet each client’s needs.

  • Do you know what a good career "fit" looks like for you?
  • Have you a plan to get you there?
  • Can you confidently articulate your individual strengths and values?
  • Are your interview skills effective?


 Success stories

“I value the time we have spent together these past 6 months. Your help in identifying my values, naming my accomplishments ...has contributed to my clearer vision for the future, and for certain, has made a positive impact on my life.”

Michelle P. (organizational client)

“Many years ago you helped me with some career counselling. You had guided me in the direction of education, and I am in my 7th year of teaching primary immersion!  Looking back, I owe a lot of my current success to you and I apologize for not letting you know sooner. Thank you again.”

Mark Choquette (individual client)
