Cons of SkillScan
The cost may put some individuals and organisations off.
Based on USA employment market data, so not always translatable for UK-based people.
The assessment is focused primarily on skills and may not take into account other factors that can be important in career decision-making, such as interests and values.
The recommendations provided by the assessment may not be accurate or relevant to the individual's specific career goals or circumstances.
The assessment relies on self-reporting, which can be influenced by an individual's perception of their own skills and abilities.
The assessment may not be as useful for individuals who have already identified their career goals and are seeking more targeted career development support.
The results of the assessment may not be as useful for individuals who do not believe in the concept of transferable skills or do not find the assessment format helpful.
