Career counseling helps people achieve a satisfying and rewarding career that fits their interests and talents. Often, career counseling helps people make career-related plans or decisions, make a change in their work, or choose a career. Individuals seek career counseling for a variety of reasons: downsizing, work dissatisfaction, mid-life issues, unemployment, help with selecting a college major, or for assistance with conducting a successful job search.
Individual career counseling is based on a confidential and collaborative relationship and is individually tailored to a client's unique needs and goals. Primary areas of focus include: interests, developed skills and abilities, values, decision-making style, goals and goal-setting, overcoming barriers, challenging myths, and exploring the world of work. Career testing, such as an interest inventory, is included, when necessary.
Career workshops address work and career issues by providing information, support and guidance in a small group, allowing for both personal attention and group interaction.
