Instructions: Review each item below and determine your current level of proficiency and the importance the item has for your career success. Use a scale of 1 to 7 (where 1 is low, and 7 is high). See Part 1, Item 1 below for an example, and then overwrite the sample ratings with your own ratings for this item. The gap for each item will be automatically calculated. Interpreting your results: In the example, the gap is -5. The large negative number indicates an item where current proficiency is low and career importance is high—so, this might be an item to address. A gap represented by a large positive number (e.g., 5) indicates that current proficiency is relatively high and career importance is relatively low. In this event, you would not want to pick the item as one to address.
