A survey of MBE counselors and experts showed that there are no standardized instruments for determining the potential of immigrants. Furthermore, many of the existing procedures are not entirely suitable: They are often “language-heavy” and therefore difficult to understand for immigrants and cannot be applied on an intercultural basis. The newly developed competence cards are customized to both the immigrants’ and the counselors’ needs. They are flexible, practically-oriented, visualize competences and are compatible with other counseling offices.
