The Career Consulting Process
Career consultants can provide you with information on many occupations based on your interests, skills, preferences, past experiences, education and training. If you require a career consulting appointment, you should be prepared to commit two to three hours of time over a three to four week interval – 45 minutes for an initial career advising individual appointment, 30 minutes to complete one or more assessment tools, one hour to attend an assessment debrief appointment if you choose to complete assessment tools and a 45 minute follow-up appointment with a career consultant to further discuss your individual situation.
Career consultants may recommend self-assessment tools, which will be delivered and interpreted by trained staff.
If you are uncertain about your career path or have not had the opportunity to gain paid experience in your chosen career field, volunteering can be a tremendous source of information and experience!
