The following sections outline the main steps a student takes through Morrisby. The site tailors itself to the student's current situation, so not all sections will be shown to all users, and the sections tailor themselves to the student and school. Students can elect to take different routes through after the profiling, and are likely to want to go back and forth across the site as they build their career plan.
Profiling - Information Gathering
The student starts by completing a series of assessments and questionnaires. The number and length depend on the stage that the student is at. The information collected during profiling builds up a "profile" of the student, which provides the basis for the suggestions that are presented later.
The student is shown their profile, which helps them understand their aptitudes, their most suitable career interests, work style, and work place preferences. This helps them appreciate how their unique make-up can fit into the world of employment.
The student's unique profile is analysed against more than 600 careers and the closest matches are highlighted for further investigation. They can be 'favourited' by the student or replaced with closer matches. Any qualification discrepancies are shown and students may change the highest level of qualification they expect to achieve. This illustrates to students how important their school qualifications are in achieving their goals and career aspirations.
