What is Career Counselling?
Career Counselling is a guided process of clarifying, planning and communicating your abilities in a targeted and confident way.
You may be feeling unhappy in your work, looking for a new direction, job searching or just wanting to be prepared. Particularly in these times of uncertainty and job losses it is essential that you stand out amongst the crowd. This requires clear understanding and communication of your abilities.
There are 4 stages in Career Counselling:

This is an essential question which people do not give enough consideration to but helps you to answer interview questions such as :
“Why do you want this job? Why should I employ you as opposed to others?”
2. Clarity of communication
What are your skills?
