“If I knew then, what I know now”
GetWorkerFITTM utilizes an online career assessment and planning tool that equips individuals with the self-knowledge of their strengths and a plan geared toward choosing, preparing for and securing an in-demand career.
“If I knew then, what I know now” is an all-too-common phrase for many recent grads, unemployed or underemployed people in this country. Whether you earned a degree or not, knowing the aptitudes and abilities you can offer an employer is critically important to your career success.
Our comprehensive career assessment requires approximately 2 hours to complete. The individual is guided through each step of the process using engaging avatars. Upon completion, your individual results are displayed, a career plan is established and all of the matching, in-demand careers are listed by zip code.
The next step in the GetWorkerFIT process is to schedule a session with one of our career coaches to go over the results to get laser focused on your career plan.

“Employers and recruiters identify candidates with pre-qualified skills”
Employers and recruiters come to you.
WorkerFIT is a people search, not just a word search like the majority of job search databases. Our WorkerFIT job search database is used by employers and recruiters looking for people with your unique skills, aptitudes and abilities to match the right person (you) with the right job. WorkerFIT is the first, and only, database that can be searched for both internship and employment opportunities that fit your personal skillset. When you complete AssessFIT, you are automatically entered into the WorkerFIT database and as you progress through the GetWorkerfit program, your certifications are updated to your profile.
When looking for a job, there are several benefits of being listed in the WorkerFIT job search database:
- WF database is a living resume that stays with you for as long as you like. You can update and modify it, you can make yourself visible to employers, or, if you have found the perfect job, turn the search feature off.
- WF early search model: If you have not yet achieved degrees or certifications but are looking to get your foot in the door, WF can help. Your personal strengths and skills are automatically generated in your profile after taking AssessFIT. This information is put in our WF personal profile to allow companies to find you for your awesome potential, even if you don’t have a lot of credentials or experience.
- Companies search for you on your strengths, aptitudes and interests, improving the likelihood of finding the right FIT for you. Don’t waste time interviewing for jobs that are not the right FIT for you.
- Best of all, your WorkerFIT listing is a FREE part of the GetWorkerFIT program!
