Career Counseling

Career planning can be a challenging time of ongoing, in-depth personal and vocational exploration. One continually learns—through embracing life, work and educational experiences.

 

We work with clients through one-on-one meetings. Every individual is unique and we cater to that originality—leading to a keener appreciation of self, and enabling a better understanding of your true individual interests, motivations, attributes and abilities.

 

In collaborating with you, we design and construct a program tailor-made to suit your needs. We specialize in working with mid-career, middle to senior management professionals from many different professions and backgrounds.

 

Through our extensive experience, we have constructed programs that help in building a strong foundation for positive career development.

Our Programs

Career Counseling

Clients reassess and redefine what is most important to them. Through one-on-one meetings, we work together to explore and assess strengths, aptitudes, interests, abilities, personality, and life experiences—guiding and focusing forward—ideally translating into a positive career direction.

 

Testing and Assessment

Testing helps provide valuable information and helps to measure various interests, personality, and career/life priorities. The tests we may utilize for assessment include:

  • Strong Interest Inventory

These tests are user-friendly, have excellent test/re-test reliability, and remain the cornerstone in the career development field.
