Whether you are in the process of choosing a career, or in the midst of a career change, having a professional by your side always helps. It helps in getting the right guidance to help set your long-term goals professionally and achieve them through scientifically developed aptitude tests and personality tests. It helps us get insights about ourselves, our career and what we can do to improve it.
It helps us to understand the career options that we have, and how to pursue them. It makes us aware of our strengths and weaknesses and lets us know what career would be best suited for us along with discussing the obstacles that we may face along the way. It makes the transition from one field to a different one, a non-stressful event.
Students and professionals have habits that are hard to break, such as procrastinating, not being updated on the latest developments in their chosen career paths, neglecting emotional and mental health, not trying to self-motivate, etc. A Career Counsellor helps break such behavioural patterns that lead to unproductive activities, both at home and in school/college/work.
It provides a platform where frustrations may be reduced, and focus is re-directed to selecting the best career options.
It is always better to seek professional guidance rather than blindly follow what everyone else is doing. The main aim of career counselling is to help students and professionals choose a field that is in tune with their skills and their job expectations.
This is why Career Counselling can serve as an inspiration to those who require it.
