Do you have what it takes to be a Career Counselor?

Career counseling is similar to traditional counseling, while the primary focus of career counseling is to provide career options, career development and various career related issues. Career counseling helps an individual to select a career field and related course that would help them be smart and financially independent. It also helps an individual to understand his strengths and weaknesses and get into a career that is best suited to his aptitude, skills and interest.

Career counselors are known to work with people from all walks of life such as teenagers, adolescents, seniors, housewives, and so on, who look for advice on choice of career and experienced professionals, businessmen who are looking for a change in career. A career counselor has a professional background in vocational psychology or organizational psychology. In addition, the approach of a career counselor might depend on the client and their concerned field. Intellectual ability and personal assessment are the two most common evaluation techniques used by a career counselor.

Basically, a career counselor is a person who helps you reach a destination in a systematic way by exploring all the career options available. His primary duty is to emphasize on your strengths and give you a wide array of options to choose from. He is a person that will support you in making the right choice. Making the right decision on the choice of career is crucial if one wants to be successful in life. Based on your preferences and available resources, a career counselor will formulate a perfect strategy to achieve education milestones. Later on, they can also assist you in getting a good job after the completion of an educational course.

Without proper guidance it is very difficult to accomplish your goals. A person might wander about in life without any destination in the absence of a career counselor. However, a career counselor should be very careful in giving career guidance. He has to be reliable, conscientious, unbiased and not a money minded person who would misguide people just to yank money.
