Career Counselling

“It is never too late to be who you might have been.” George Eliot

There are generally two types of career counselling. One helps to classify and categorize you according to established types. The other focuses on your stories, history and uniqueness. Both of these processes have their merits. If you are eager to see how your interests, personality style and skills compare to the general population, there is much to gain in better understanding yourself in relation to the other. If you want a more subjective view of yourself, a personal and narrative exploration makes sense.

Combining the subjective and objective elements of the career assessment provides you with a well-rounded and all-inclusive process. By enhancing your awareness, you will better recognize the influences that contribute to your career, academic and life satisfaction and be able to take the necessary steps to achieve your goals.

I got exactly out of these sessions what I wanted to get: A real look inside myself to realize the activities that make me happy, and an understanding that this can be applied to a career. Also, that a drastic career change is feasible and manageable.
