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
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.
Picking a career path is difficult when you have no idea what you want to do with your life. Bouncing between options and never settling on anything can even bring on mental health issues when allowed to go on for too long. Not to mention that even when you have chosen a career, there comes the new stress of finding that perfect job. Or maybe you’re already working and decide that you’re in the wrong career.
There’s no doubt that embarking on a new career or job—at any age—is one of life’s major events. For this reason, there are professionals dedicated to helping people find the career that is best suited for them. These professionals also help their clients to find a successful and meaningful job, one that brings the individual happiness and fulfillment.
If this sounds like a service you could benefit from, reach out to Thriveworks Salem Counseling to schedule career counseling now. Our career counselors and coaches would be honored to work with you.
Career Counseling: How Does It Work?
The good news is that there are so many excellent career counseling services around these days. Most of these employ highly trained vocational counseling therapists who can work at all levels. What this means is that no one has to go through this difficult time alone. It’s amazing how much easier an otherwise complicated decision-making process can become with a little professional guidance.
Students have a clean slate; they haven’t even started in the workplace yet. Older workers have things a bit tougher. It can be easier to find a job when you have a job, but not always. You might need to retrain for something but just don’t have time because of your current work commitments. If frustration goes on for too long you need to watch out for the following signs:
- Feelings of insecurity
- Feelings of failure and worthlessness
- Sleep disturbances
- Overwhelm of stress
Obviously, these are all things that will only hinder and never help you to move on with a career.
