Career Counselling

One’s career tends to be an important part of one’s life, and researching and sifting through the vast amount of information available, can be a daunting task. Career counselling is structured so that you can be guided at any stage of life choosing, changing or maintaining a career.

What is Career Counselling ?

Also known as career guidance, career counselling aids people with various choices they make through their lives regarding their careers. With the vast number of choices available to us, it can often be difficult to settle on one, or even know what skills it requires to shift to another. This is where career counselling comes in. A career counsellor is expected to have an understanding of the skills required in different fields, the basic requirements for a particular line of work, and how to assess a client’s abilities to determine whether a certain career is suited to them.

Career counselling may be provided by various individuals trained to provide information pertaining to a career, discuss career growth, and provide other resources to help advance skills and knowledge.

Types of Career Counselling

  • Helping someone decide a direction to begin with, or perhaps guiding one on how to pursue a desired direction
  • What skills, interests, or talents may be useful in what kind of career? Also, which of these are required for a desired career
  • What kind of educational goals and time must you invest to pursue a certain career?
  • The work environment and earnings in a particular stream
  • Whether there are chances at shifts, growth or advancement in certain careers?

Career counselling is a holistic process and involves interviews to determine a person’s drive, ability, personality etc. This not only allows the counsellor, but also the individual to gain proper insight into themselves and then proceed to identify what decisions may suit them.

It is also useful to people across all ages. Students in college may better understand how they can create a career with their major, or perhaps how to shift into a different stream. Similarly, someone may benefit from career counselling even in the middle of their career. It can then help one understand what options are available at this stage, and what may be required to move to another type of job. Career counselling can also be beneficial in maintaining one’s career and growing in it. It can provide resources for skill building, working with individuals, etc.

Thus, at any point in time, this type of counselling can ease the burden and stress of trying to navigate the world of work alone. It equips you with knowledge and a structure to tackle and achieve the goals required.
