Career Guidance and Support

Career guidance explanation and assistance can be provided by experienced career counselors, peer mentors and family and friends. They can be offered in a variety of settings such as workplaces, schools and community organizations.

A career coach assists clients to set and attain their career goals. They do this by engaging in a variety of career-related activities to help people become aware of their strengths skills, interests, and talents in a way that helps them to make informed choices regarding their careers.

The purpose of counseling for career is to ensure that the career that an individual chooses to pursue is the best fit for their skills and abilities as well as their personality. Career guidance is important at every stage of life, but is particularly important in school and during the first years of employment.

Many career counselors also offer assistance with job searches. They can help job seekers find jobs, write resumes, prepare applicants for interviews, and use networking strategies to find work. They can also provide advice on career advancement, workplace issues such as dealing with office politics and negotiations for pay increases.

Counseling for career development is also sought by those who feel their chosen career path is no longer fulfilling. A counselor can help identify and explore other career options including sports psychology or ethical hacking.
