At different points in our lives, the decision about what to do resurfaces and forces us to evaluate what our sense of meaning and purpose is. And for a lot of us, that is defined in what we do in our waking hours – what we do for work. The process of finding a career is not always easy. Many factors, including personal interests, skills, values, and the job market, can influence a person’s career decision. It is important to take the time to reflect on what is important to a person, and to consider their strengths and weaknesses when exploring different career options.

Career counselling seeks to explore a person’s values, interests, skills, and goals, in order to provide career support and guidance. Career counsellors use a variety of tools, techniques, and assessments to help individuals understand their strengths, limitations, and areas for growth. They also provide information on the job market, career paths, and educational opportunities, and help individuals prepare for the job search process, including writing resumes and practicing interview skills.
