Starting Career counseling

What is Career counseling?

Career counseling, sometimes called career coaching, helps individuals make informed career decisions. This type of counseling is led by one of our Providence therapists who is trained to provide career development support.

How does Career counseling work?

Career counseling works to help you navigate your professional career and offer valuable information, such as required skill sets and/or education, regarding a particular position you may be considering. The following are common focuses of conversation that will help your career counselor best help you:

  • Job environment preferences
  • Growth potential
  • Career goals, short- and long-term
  • Personality type
  • Desired lifestyle
  • Potential earnings of a given career

Is Career counseling conducted in person or online?

Career counseling at Thriveworks is conducted both in person and via Online therapy. We encourage you to choose the option that works best for you.

How long does Career counseling last?

Career counseling can last for weeks, months, or even years. It all depends on the goals that you're looking to accomplish and whether you continue to want/need that partner to reach your goals. Either way, our career counselors are here and ready to help you get on the right track.

Need more help deciding?

Any worker who fails to keep their skills current often runs into difficulties if the time comes to change jobs or even career paths. Another problem is when both young and old alike fail to develop their computer skills. Basic computer literacy is not difficult, not even for the technically challenged. In fact, there is very little that’s “technical” with using popular software programs. Those without such skills are going to have to play catchup if they need to move on in their jobs or careers. The best advice out there is to not fall behind, otherwise you risk losing out to the competition.

Career counseling is a great place to start for anyone looking to compete in the jobs market. At its most basic level, good career counseling will assist in these two key areas:

  • Help to update your outdated profile
  • Offer a proper assessment of where you’re at now and where you need to head

The career counselors at Thriveworks Counseling in Providence, RI can fulfill the above areas and more. They can help you understand your strengths and weaknesses, as well as help you harness your strengths and improve your weaknesses. If you’re looking for greater career success or happiness, don’t hesitate to work with a member of our career counseling team.

Failure to Prepare

The biggest challenge of all for most people is being unprepared and ill-equipped. Anyone who needs to suddenly relaunch a career or is just starting out has to be ready. The longer someone is out of work, the more difficult it can be to get into meaningful employment. If you’re stuck in a rut, consider getting in touch with a vocational counseling service provider without delay.

How Vocational or Career Counseling Helps

Choosing careers guidance and support is often a very wise move for anyone at any age. A good counselor can help to uncover problems and suggest solutions to all kinds of things you may not have otherwise spotted. Some of these will include the following (in no particular order):

  • Advice on résumé and cover letting writing
  • Plan a set of attainable goals and a workable plan of action
  • Help with using creative ways to look for work and promote your talents
  • Identify and address issues that may be holding you back
  • Identify any negative thoughts and behaviors
  • Look at fitting career path/role/opportunities
  • Look at how to make the most of any existing skills and life experiences
  • Look into personal issues that may have an impact on work-life
  • Take positive steps to move toward a healthier and happier life

Vivian provides a welcoming conversational space for exchange. She is able to listen with genuine care and when the time is right give feedback that is both empathetic and constructive. If I have to share a problem with her that might be difficult to share with even a close friend, I feel she is able to help coach me along with a patient reassurance that my thoughts and feelings will be considered without judgment. There may not always be a direct or immediate answer to what I’m working through but she is able to encourage healthy thought-habits and emotional strategies which help me to progress. I really appreciate her respectful frame of mind and down-to-earth personality, they make talking with her worthwhile.
