There are better ways to do just about everything, and that includes managing your career.

At Optima Careers, we transform the intuitive nature of getting to know oneself into a process that is structured and practical. We help you establish criteria to select and evaluate career alternatives. And we employ proven diagnostic tools and exercises that enable deeper analysis.

Our exclusive approach systematically integrates multiple assessments of your skills, strengths, personality and desires to create a unique and actionable personal profile for guiding your career search or managing work/life issues. Taken together, the Optima approach gives deep insight into what you like to do and what you are good at doing. Then, we map the marketplace for each client to determine what they can be paid to do, and help them find the right entry point or make the next best move.

You might choose Optima's Career Discovery Method or our Job Search Method. Or, your situation might be more suited to a targeted strategy session with an Optima consultant. Let us know your needs, and we'll find a way to work with you.
