MyCareer is a flexible web-based application developed to enable individuals to purchase and complete a series of skill certification tests toward the achievement of a specific Job Role Certification. A version of the same application allows users managed from the Skill Management Environment to complete skill assessment test assigned to them by a manager or a third party.

MyCareer is a portal for individual users or users managed within a company from a Skills Management Environment. Individual users can create an account and buy single skill assessment tests, of job profile certification test packages.

The primary metaphors of MyCareer are current and goal jobs, which users are asked to define in their profiles. Once these have been selected the user can track which core skills (usually between 7 and 10 skills per job role) they have been certified for, and which they have not. Users can also see how their current skills compare to different job role requirements.

Skills Management Environment allows managers to create user accounts and assign tests to those users, who they now manage. Users receive an email notifying them whenever they’ve been assigned a test or tests, and are directed to login to their account on the private MyCareer portal. Users can also be given the option of completing any tests they would like, or only those assigned to them. Managers can track completion status of tests and other user activity, for an individual or for one or more groups.

The complete Skill Assessment platform includes components which manage test development, delivery, grouping and packaging, in addition to the Skill Management Environment and the MyCareer components included here.

Like many other tools CE created the SME is eventually wrapped with a site identity, and with a number of optional site specific features, can be fully integrate into a company intranet or website.
