The focus in career counseling is generally on issues such as career exploration, career change, personal career development and other career related issues. Career counseling helps the client to select a course of study that may help him/her to get into job or make them employable. A career counselor helps candidates to get into a career that is suited to their aptitude, personality, interest, skills, resources and temperament. Career Counseling is helpful for people of all ages and in different stages of life. It is helpful for school students, graduates and those wishing to make a mid-career change.
A career counselor can put a person’s qualification, experience, strengths and weakness in a broad perspective taking into consideration schooling, desired salary, personal hobbies and interests, location and job market to help them make a decision. It will help greatly to find the current position as well as the future direction.
