What Does Career Counseling Involve?

1) Assessment
This involves a process of objectively evaluating your skills, interests and values to determine an appropriate career or career position. It may include a series of vocational and personality instruments, such as the Strong Interest Inventory, the FIRO-B, or the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator, among others.

Assessment may also involve the identification of barriers to effective employment, such as poor decision-making abilities or self-defeating attitudes and behaviors

2) Research
It is important to learn how to find and use career information so that you can effectively research companies, organizations and industries of interest. I offer help in determining areas to research, as well as how to conduct productive face-to-face informational interviews.

3) Career Management
This may include a variety of interpersonal goals, such as creating greater visibility within an organization, advancing within a company, getting along with others at work, or dealing with office politics. Together, we develop strategies to accomplish your goals.

4) Self-Marketing
This area includes developing a career network, creating an outstanding resume, sharpening interviewing skills, and negotiating a salary, benefits and severance package.

5) Action Plan
What is my next step? Do I need further training? Do I need a job change or a career change?
