Roles of the Career Counselor
Services of career counselors differ, depending on the counselor's level of competence, the setting, client needs, and other factors. Master Career Counselors and other professional career counselors help people make and carry out decisions and plans related to life/career directions. Strategies and techniques of professional career counselors are tailored to the specific needs of the person seeking help. It is likely that the career counselor will do one or more of the following:
Conduct individual and group personal counseling sessions to help clarify life/career goals.
Administer and interpret tests and inventories to assess abilities, interests, and other factors, and to identify career options.
Encourage exploratory activities through assignments and planning experiences.
Utilize career planning systems and occupational information systems to help individuals better understand the world of work.
Provide opportunities for improving decision-making skills.
Assist in developing individualized career plans.
Teach job hunting strategies and skills and assist in the development of resumes.
Help resolve potential personal conflicts on the job through practice in human relations skills.
Assist in understanding the integration of work and other life roles.
Provide support for persons experiencing job stress, job loss, and career transition.
When I was beginning my personal growth journey, a wise person told me that when I was feeling resentful or afraid or sad, that I should remember the phrase "gratitude is the attitude" when I was ready to feel better. That phrase has helped me feel better tens of thousands of times.
Would you share what you are most grateful for? Your story could be just what another person is searching for to renew themselves? Thanks.
