Hi, my name is David Valle. I'm the founder and owner of Itinaucore. Pronounced as "Itin-nah-cor", it is the combination of three words: itinerary, nautical, and core.
I chose the name Itinaucore because when you embark on any journey, an itinerary will help organize and list the places that a person needs to go.
Once an itinerary is established, getting to where you need to go involves navigation. History and literature have written of the adventures and perils of nautical seafaring journeys.
If you're looking for the central or most important part of something, you're looking for its core. You are that important core!
During the global financial crisis of 2007-2008 when 9 million Americans lost their jobs and unemployment peaked at 10%, I learned the value of being adaptable, creative, and thinking out of the box. Changing jobs or having to try another field of work can be scary. Your confidence is tested. You start to wonder if you are making the right decision. What helped me navigate through that turbulence was career assessments that helped me focus on how best I could use my natural abilities and skills to adapt to different jobs. Knowledge of my strengths gave me the confidence to try new fields of work.
Most of us take our strengths, talents, and skills for granted, which at times make it difficult to identify them. However, once you know your strengths-that is, the skills you prefer using, the things you are good at - you will feel more comfortable navigating towards the profession or industry that fits you best. With Artificial Intelligence and automation restructuring society and our working environment, understanding your transferable skills is crucial.
Itinaucore's logo represents "squaring the circle", which is sometimes used as a metaphor for trying to do the impossible. The way jobs and our environment continue to change, sometimes it seems impossible to keep up. I believe that career assessments are not only essential as a foundation for self-discovery, but the itinerary needed to identify your strengths in an organized manner to help you plan your journey and navigate through an ever-changing economy and workplace.
Interestingly, the word 'opportunity' is a nautical term associated with navigation. The word comes from the Latin phrase, ob portum veniens "coming toward a port" which refers to a favorable wind blowing ships into the harbor. Though some may think of opportunity as simply good fortune, preparation is still needed. For example, a sailor still had to be prepared for the "winds of change" before they actually did. Sailors didn't wait for that change of wind to take action, they diligently prepared for it, they anticipated it, and they were keenly tuned in for it.
As the world changes, careers are changing as well, or disappearing. Many that went to school aren't even in the professions they studied. Jobs that exist today, didn't exist 5 years ago.
One needs to become tuned into the winds of change and learn to navigate towards the port of success. This way opportunity is no longer a surprise, but a result of diligent preparation. Confidently knowing your natural abilities, skills, and strengths will help you navigate towards unrecognized opportunities and berth your ship to success.
According to the assessment you chose, you will be given between an hour or two in consultation to help you create a S.W.O.T analysis of your assessment results. A Strength, Weakness, Opportunity, and Threat analysis are used by many organizations to evaluate where they stand in a competitive market and what steps need to be taken for further strategic planning, helping make important decisions to draw a future roadmap.
Itinaucore would like to assist you in understanding and identifying your abilities and strength to create your future roadmap. Please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org or (917) 535 -7497.
