5 Benefits of Career Counselling


If you are confused on the career you would like to set yourself on, and all the 'counselling' you receive from your parents and/or friends doesn't seem to get you anywhere, some professional help from a career counsellor can actually work.

What are the benefits of career counselling?

There are many. With the handful of options available on the job market today, career counselling may be able to put you in the right direction, well at least as far as pinpointing what career path you should be really focusing on. A professional advisor is someone who can help you identify and work on your strengths and weaknesses. Hopefully, you will in time, together with your career counsellour, understand what jobs and/or careers you are more likely to be interested in.

Muovo has found the following article of incredible help, and would like to share these insights from CV Tips with you.

1. Test to Determine Your Strengths and Weaknesses.
When you engage in career counselling, you will most likely be working with a trained professional who can provide you with various aptitude and career assessment tests. These tests are designed to match your natural skills, strengths and abilities with key components of specific careers. You will also be able to determine what weaknesses you may have so that you can avoid working towards a career that will only lead to frustration. Having this information ahead of time can be invaluable when choosing what career path to take.

2. Set Goals to Achieve Greater Results.
A large part of your professional advisor's job is to guide you through the process of goal setting in your career endeavors. She or he can help you identify the steps needed to reach important goals along the way as you explore new career options or make changes in the career you already have. This can be a major benefit for you if you struggle with reaching goals or making changes, as you will be accountable not only to yourself, but to another person.

3. Identify Choices in Careers.
Whether you are new on the job market or have been going through the process of switching careers mid-life, you may be amazed at the full range of career options available today. While this may be positive, it can also be overwhelming. A career counsellor can assist you with focusing on one area of a career path that works best for you so that you save time and efforts by working on realistic career goals that are right for you.

4. Use Educational Support and Guidance.
As you start working with a career counsellor, you may encounter many careers that require specific training or education. This process can be made more pleasant by sharing the experience with a supporting career counsellor who can help you along the way with support, resources and tools to help you achieve the training you need to be successful in your new career path.

5. Don't Forget Job Search Support.
If you are ready to start looking for a new job, a career counsellor can be an invaluable source of support and encouragement. Career counsellors often offer cover letter, resume and interviewing services in conjunction with their counselling services. A good career counselor will be able to provide you with the tools, feedback and resources you need to be successful in your job search.

Good luck!
