Career Values Card Sort for Career Centers

Understanding one's values supports career fulfillment, growth, and whole-person well-being. To ensure career satisfaction, helping your students understand their career values and work-life balance priorities is equally as important as helping them explore their interests, skills, aptitudes, and personality type.

Our digital and hard-copy Career Values Card Sort is an engaging tool for helping your students explore, clarify, and articulate their career and work-life balance priorities and goals.


Help your students get clear on what's most important to them when they think about how, where, when, with whom, and why they want to work.

The Career Values Card Sort walks students through understanding which kinds of work environments and cultures will allow them to be true to who they are, flex their natural strengths and talents, and do their best work moving forward. 

This tool teaches your students how to ask important questions during career conversations, informational interviews, and formal interviews to best align their work with their values, prevent burnout, and feel engaged and fulfilled in their career.

Balanced Card Sorts was recently invited to contribute the Featured Article for the August 2023 edition of the National Career Development Association's (NCDA) Career Convergence Magazinewhich highlights the importance of helping our students and clients identify and talk about their career and work-life balance values, and priorities. 

"While knowing one’s values won’t alone help clients choose a career direction, it is crucial to have a clear understanding of what is held most important, both in work and life, and is equally important as assessing and understanding skills, interests, aptitudes, strengths, and personality type. Values assessment and clarity should be woven into the career exploration work career professionals do with every one of their clients, regardless of age or career level."
