Career Counseling

Finding Your Life Work

Career counseling is a relationship that allows you to better understand:
  • Yourself and others
  • Identify your life/career direction
  • Overcome barriers to your life/career path
  • Implement your life/career goals
Career counselors are like a passenger in the car that you are driving. They help you notice different paths to take bumps in the road or when to pull over to look at a map in more detail. You are the driver in your "career car". With this in mind, career counselors do not tell you what to do. They help you clarify what you most want in life so that you can find a career path that connects to who you are as a person. This often occurs as career counselors listen to you, reflect to you what they hear you say, and, if needed, they may utilize career assessments to help you better understand yourself and your career options. This reflective process allows you to clarify who you are and what you want. Career counselors may help you sort out your thoughts, feelings, and behaviors related to your life/career path. Finnding your life/career direction can sometimes take time. It is up to you to explore yourself and the world around you.
