INDIVIDUALIZED CAREER COUNSELING AND EXPLORATION

 

Appropriate for those wanting to change careers as well as those happy with their occupation but interested in exploring different settings.  It is not uncommon for some clients to realize at the assessment stage that they can improve their present level of job satisfaction and career direction by learning to adjust to new workplace trends.  Motivational interviewing, a method that works on facilitating and engaging intrinsic motivation within the client in order to change behavior, is used when appropriate.

 

The program helps clients to:

 

* Review their work accomplishments

* Recognize what they have liked and disliked in their work history

* Discover what motivates them at work

* Find out what's really important to them in their work setting

* Identify their skills and interests

* Evaluate how well they are balancing their life

* Pull this information together to determine direction

* Research and discover future work possibilities best suited to them

* Create an action plan to reach their goals

 

The VIA questionnaire is used to identify character strengths.  Every client accessing career-related counselling will receive an online portfolio and access to the Choices program (available through Bridges) which provides planning and exploration products to give clients in transition reasons to achieve more -- exploring all their options, setting goals and making plans to get there.
