The Career Motivation Indicator

Career Motivation Indicator

Want to rethink your career direction?

If so, go straight to where you can buy an access code to complete the Career Motivation Indicator questionnaire and receive a full 10 page CMi report. 

CMi is intended to help you make more informed judgements about your career development options.  By providing useful insights into the key drivers behind your career choices, and how they compare with those of other people, it will give you the chance to think more fully about your career goals. More information about what CMi provides is given below, and in our CMi Leaflet.

How do you deal with questions like:

  • 'Where is my career heading?'
  • 'What do I really want from my job?'
  • 'Why am I dissatisfied with work?'
  • 'Why do I long for a change?'

If you are engaged in career or life coaching, or even trying to answer some of the above questions for yourself, the Career Motivation Indicator will help by providing answers and stimulating fresh thinking about your career management and direction.

  • CMi is a rigorously developed measure of career motivation produced by SR&A - its results are both reliable and valid.

  • CMi helps respondents to become more aware of the factors that are most influential in driving their career choices.

  • CMi is based upon our extension of the theories of Edgar Schein and Donald Super.
  • CMi has been renormed and further research has enabled us to clarify its underlying 'global career theme factors' - see below for what CMi measures.

What are Career Motivators?

Termed career 'hot buttons' by career counsellor John Lees, author of the McGraw-Hill best-selling 'How to Get a Job You'll Love', and 'Take Control of your Career', Career Motivators provide an assessment of those aspects of one's needs, values and interests that must be satisfied if one is to gain satisfaction from one's choice of career.  See below for a detailed list.

What Benefits does CMi Bring?
