The Pivotal Talent solution is more than an aptitude or psychometric tests.
This one-of-a-kind, web-based solution applies augmented intelligence and draws on six decades of research to deliver powerfully predictive recommendations and reveal your true potential.

By scientifically and automatically identifying your inherent skills and interests, we’re able to recommend the most suitable subjects and career fields.

Unlike standard tests, the solution also takes into account ‘soft’ skills, like personal interests, preferences and ‘grit’ to widen its calibrations. In doing so, we can narrow down your career focus.

“Having been to two careers guidance professionals in Gauteng, I was still very confused as to what path I wanted to take when leaving school. Pivotal Talent’s CareerGuide assessment was simple to complete, hugely informative and instant! Finally, I can complete my University applications with confidence as I have a clear direction.”

Grade 12 student, Brescia House School

“I recently completed the CareerGuide assessment as I have had absolutely no idea what I wanted to study. I was even considering taking a gap year to try and figure out what my next steps were. After completing the assessment, I now have complete clarity in terms of what I need to study and the areas in which I will excel. I would recommend CareerGuide to any student that is confused or unsure about what they want to study or achieve in the future.”

My daughter Tamsin decided to complete the Pivotal Talent Subject Choice assessment and it was the best decision she could have made. The assessment was truthful and the accuracy was incredible. We are now completely confident that she has made the correct decisions regarding her subject choices.”
