What Should I expect from career counseling?
A career coach will help you identify where you are in the career development process and guide you through the specific steps that will help you formulate and implement an action plan.
This process can involve self-assessment, gathering information, weighing alternatives and decision making. However, the role of the career counselor is not to select or decide which career is right for you, but to provide guidance and resources to help you form your own conclusions regarding the direction of your career.
What typically happens in the first session with a consultant?
Your consultant will use the first session to gather information on your career history, professional experience, education, outside interests and life goals. This information will help your career consultant evaluate the current situation and recommend the steps you will need to take to accomplish your goals.
