Career counselling typically includes interests, skills and opportunities. Another dimension that can be added to this is the intellectual abilities. A large number of occupations have been analysed in terms of the SOI abilities neede to them. We obtain descriptions from government publications and then transcribe the tasks that they describe into abilities defined by the stucture of intellect. This produced a set of occupation profiles depicting the job requirements in Structure of Intellect terms.
The students who take up the SOI test have an opportunity to compare their profile of abilities with the occupational profiles that have been derived from SOI analysis. The comparison indicates how well their current profiles of abilities fits the profiles of their interests.
SOI Career counselling consists of two levels :
1. Level one comprises the skills and knowledge required for the occupation.
2. Level two comprises the learning abilities required to obtain those skills and knowledge.
As a consequence of this two step process, the student is able to develop some of the learning abilities, akills and knowledge to persue the career of thier choice.
