McCann Associates, Boyer Management Group Offer College Students and Recent Grads the Ultimate Job-Search Resource

The Fourth Edition of the Graduate Employment Preparedness Assessment℠ Development Guide Provides the Most Up-to-Date Methods for Securing Employment.

YARDLEY, PA – December 11, 2013 – McCann Associates, the leading provider of online assessment tools, has combined Measured Success™, its online assessment platform, with the employment search expertise of Boyer Management Group, to create the definitive, most up-to-date resource for college students and recent grads to significantly improve their job search skills and increase their chances of landing ideal employment.

The just-released fourth edition of the Graduate Employment Preparedness Assessment℠(GEPA℠) Development Guide, available exclusively online, includes nearly 2,000 of the most current and emerging job search best practices, tools, templates, examples and checklists, all led by the power of the GEPA℠ Assessment, which measures job search competency.

Unlike other assessments offered to college students, GEPA℠ is the only assessment that measures what someone knows about conducting an effective career search,” said Sid Guerrero, Director of Sales for McCann Associates. “As colleges and universities look to prepare their students and recent grads to transition into their career, GEPA℠ and Measured Success can play a vital role in helping them conduct a more effective job search.”

Ideal for students and recent graduates of colleges, universities, trade schools, online employment resource centers, and other institutions, GEPA℠ helps connect people to jobs by measuring someone’s knowledge of the core competencies essential to a successful career search: researching career, employer, and job opportunities; creating essential search materials; interview preparation; conducting an effective interview; and following up after the interview.

According to Hank Boyer, President and CEO of Management Boyer Group, publisher of GEPA℠, “The GEPA℠ Assessment is completed and scored online in less than 40 minutes. Participants then download their Score Report, six-page Personal Feedback Report, and their Development Guide, all of which provide a timely, effective pathway for a successful job search.

“Last year, thousands of college students used GEPA℠ as part of an accredited collegiate curriculum that taught students how to conduct a job search. GEPA℠ enabled the students to measure their learning outcomes, leading to an average 50% increase in their job search skills, making GEPA℠ a powerful tool for connecting graduates with careers. With employment being a major concern in America, we’re pleased to offer such a highly effective resource that aids the ability to secure a job, or better job, more quickly.”
