My business helps people to find a career that matches their interests and personality usually through a one-on-one face-to-face career direction consultation. I would like to expand my business by allowing people to go to my website and do online career assessments. Up to now the obstacle to this happening has been that apart from trying to create my own online career assessment instruments (which would be a huge undertaking!!) the only other option is to source online products that are already on the market and then to offer these through an affiliate arrangement (where I would get a percentage of the sale for each administration of the test). I have been trying to search for distributors of such products but up to now I have been unsuccessful. As an example, I use the Jackson Vocational Interest Survey and also the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator with my face-to-face clients which I purchase from Sigma Assessments and CPP-Asia Pacific respectively, however, neither of these distributors offer affiliate arrangements. I would like to find a distributor of online career assessment instruments that I can sign up with as an affiliate to distribute their product.
The project will have three phases:
1. Report on web search to source suitable products and distributors that meet my criteria. Products must
include a general vocational interest scale that can be completed online and a report sent to the test taker
of their vocational interests which will also include a list of suitable occupations they could consider; and
also if possible, a personality scale that can be completed online and results reported back to the test taker.
The career assessment instruments must meet the following requirements:
a. It must have validity and reliability
b. It must be based on a sizeable population sample
c. It must be well regarded by other Career Development practitioners
2. Negotiate with the product distributor to obtain affiliate status. This would be the responsibility of
CareerGuru and would not involve the Freelancer.
3. Develop e-commerce functionality on my website to cater for visitors to my website to be able to take online career assessments. Please note that my website does not yet have a shopping cart function and it would be a part of the project and responsibility of the Freelancer to add this function in consultation with CareerGuru and the product distributor. The test taker must be able to go to my website and click on a test that they would like to take which will then take them to a shopping cart that will include the particular test they want to take and then complete the transaction with their credit card before taking the test. The shopping cart function would also need to automatically calculate the commission and pay the product distributor for each product sale.
