Day 12: Will Birmingham Take the Bull By its Horns?

We set up our Pit-stops on Birmingham’s High Street, just next to the Bullring Shopping centre, ready for another day of Career MOT Testing.

We were very pleasantly greeted with a multitude of eager faces, happy to try our new free app ‘Career MOT’ and book some free career and CV advice.

It was really great to see so many people inspired to drive their futures forward. Looking forward to another busy day tomorrow!

Day 10: Is Cardiff a City of Executives?

We’ve enjoyed another busy day at our Cardiff Pit-stop on Queen Street… so far we’ve gathered some quite remarkable stats which would suggest that Cardiff could be a City home to many an ENTJ – Extroverted  iNtuitive Thinking Judging profile: which could lead to career paths including an MD, Politician, Marketing Manager or Entrepreneur amongst many others.

We’ve thoroughly enjoyed our time in Cardiff, and who knows, we may just have met the next Steve Jobs (a fellow ENTJ profile!)

 

Day 6: One New Change – Can You Spot The Difference?

They say life is all about change, and that couldn’t be truer for us! Having had a temporary malfunction with our campervan, we pulled up at our 3rd Pit-stop in a replacement vehicle… making sure we kept to our word to drive futures forward.

Change is often not embraced in a positive manner, taking people out of their comfort zones. Yet, the reality is most things change or evolve with time. Small changes to your career in the form of progression, or expansion into new areas can be a positive way to refresh your passion for your role.

We spent the day chatting to City workers about their roles, and running profiles through our Career MOT app – we were pleased to see so many surprised faces as the app unravelled the characteristics of their personalities.

One New Change

We’re looking forward to spending our last day in London at Victoria Station tomorrow… wonder how London will compare with the rest of the countries profile results? Will there be more thinkers and visionaries, or executives and chiefs?… we’ll have to wait and see!

Day 3: Is Edinburgh a City for Dreamers & Idealists?

We spent day 3 of #PitmanOnTour back on Castle Street, Edinburgh with a flurry of shoppers, and local workers, debating career paths and progression.

Interestingly, we are already seeing a regional trend in profile characteristics, with a majority pull towards ‘INFP’ – the result for Dreamers and Idealists. Not as fluffy as the title may suggest, this category suits those who would like to/work in roles such as: teacher, editor, writer, counsellor, report or musician, amongst many others.

We’re looking forward to seeing the outcomes in other regions over the duration of the campaign, and hope we help many make some big career steps and decisions to drive their future forward.

We’ll be back on the road again tomorrow :)

Day 2: A Van with a View – 1st Pit-Stop brakes at the foot of the Castle

Local shoppers, commuters and workers alike have spent today trialling our new free app at the first Pitman Training Career MOT Pit-stop based on Castle Street, Edinburgh.

Many were surprised at just how close our diagnostic profiling station had matched them not just to their characteristics, but their career paths or aspirational goals!

We managed to point a healthy number of onlookers in the direction of their next attainable career move, which left us with a skip in our step – looking forward to covering the length and breath of the UK.

A Van with a View – Edinburgh Castle

We’ll be back to conduct more diagnostic profiling tomorrow morning (5th September) – if you missed us today, be sure to pass by!
