What I Can Help You With
As a school student, it can be a very confusing time at school trying to decide what career you want to follow. Expectations from parents, friends, teachers and others make the career choice even more confusing and stressful as a range of opinions and well-meaning, “If I were you…” advice is often offered.
That “first” career choice needs to be a considered and well thought out one – and one that the young person can stand by with confidence and understanding why they have made it. It’s important to gather information from a range of assessments and leaflets – but it’s more important to help young people make sense of all the information and understand how it applies to them.
Through one on one sessions, students are taken through a process that assists them to manage their current and future career choices.
Changing Careers as an Adult
I have experience in helping you to make sense of the confusion and help you find out more about what motivates you, what you value and what your career options might be.
Career planning is a lifelong process and doesn’t finish once you’ve entered your first career. It is a process of self-discovery – of exploring career choices and refining needs. With age and experience, we learn more about what makes us happy in life. We begin to appreciate the unique and remarkable integration of personality, interests, skills and values that makes each of us who we are. We begin to take serious stock in finding career paths that best compliment this unique sense of identity. and, in time and with change, we find ourselves in careers that truly fit.
