Finding a career that suits you

You’ve heard it at every job interview, the dreaded question: “what are your strengths and weaknesses”. It’s a difficult question to answer for a lot of people. More often than not, most people stutter through the answer while others try to remember their results from a personality assessment they had to take for a new job or aptitude test that they took back when they were in high school.

Personality assessments are great to empower people to learn more about themselves and understand themselves better, but often that work doesn’t translate into how those attributes play out in the career that you chose for yourself. Working in a career that allows you to play to your strengths has proven to be an important part of carving a fulfilling career for yourself.

There is a simpler way to get to the best answer to this question, besides sitting through a 120 question assessment which gives you the most impossible options to choose between. We’ve discovered an app that can pick up what your strengths are and pairs your best attributes to the ideal career for you.

The Knack app uses gamification to help assess what your talents are and connects users to their potential careers. The app offers three games that a user can play: Meta Maze, Balloon Brigade and Wasabi Waiter. By playing these games, you are measured on qualities like emotional intelligence, cognitive abilities, logical thinking and problem-solving. Based on how you score on the different qualities, you can discover your hidden strengths and see which career paths are best suited and linked to those strengths. The results are personalised, putting you in control of how you choose to navigate your career by playing to your strengths.

You can give the game a try by downloading the Knack App.

To get the best out of the app and gain accurate results, it is best to play it in a controlled environment with limited distractions, a secure and stable internet connection.

You can also share your results with us on our social media pages using #GetUpKnacks, we would love to know what knacks you’ve got!
