Career Counseling & Career Coaching

Additional Information

This is a long form text area designed for your content that you can fill up with as many words as your heart desires. You can write articles, long mission statements, company policies, executive profiles, company awards/distinctions, office locations, shareholder reports, whitepapers, media mentions and other pieces of content that don’t fit into a shorter, more succinct space.


Articles – Good topics for articles include anything related to your company – recent changes to operations, the latest company softball game – or the industry you’re in. General business trends (think national and even international) are great article fodder, too.


Mission statements – You can tell a lot about a company by its mission statement. Don’t have one? Now might be a good time to create one and post it here. A good mission statement tells you what drives a company to do what it does.


Company policies – Are there company policies that are particularly important to your business? Perhaps your unlimited paternity/maternity leave policy has endeared you to employees across the company. This is a good place to talk about that.


Executive profiles – A company is only as strong as its executive leadership. This is a good place to show off who’s occupying the corner offices. Write a nice bio about each executive that includes what they do, how long they’ve been at it, and what got them to where they are.

Career counseling and career coaching are similar in nature to traditional counseling. However, the focus is generally on issues such as:

  • career exploration
  • career change
  • personal career development
  • other career related issues

Typically when people come for career counseling they know exactly what they want to get out of the process, but are unsure about how it will work.

Sometimes an employment change causes an individual to alter the prior course of their employment career and learning how to maximize their prior experiences into their new career choice is helpful.

The Process

Career counseling is the process of helping the individual to select a course of study that may help them to get into an occupation or make them more employable. A career counselor helps the candidates to get into the career that is suited to their aptitude, personality, interest and skills. So it is the process of making an effective correlation between the internal psychology of a candidate with the external factors of employability and courses.

The approach of career counseling varies, but will generally include the completion of one or more assessments. These assessments typically include cognitive ability tests, and personality assessments. The two most commonly used assessments are the Strong Interest Inventory and the MBTI.

Who Benefits

Career counselors work with people from various walks of life, such as adolescents seeking to explore career options, or experienced professionals contemplating a career change. Our career counselors have a background in vocational psychology and/or industrial/organizational psychology.​
