Career guidance consists of the services that help people successfully manage their career development. Although this aspect of human development occurs on its own as we mature, everyone can benefit from assistance navigating through this process.
Career Choice Assistance: Career guidance often involves assisting students and adults who are trying to choose a career. Career development professionals may administer self-assessment instruments or teach their clients how to use self-administered tools, to help them learn about their interests, values, skills and personality type. They can educate individuals about how to explore occupations that are most suitable based on that information and then ultimately teach them how to decide which one is the best choice.
Job Search Help: Helping you choose a career would be pointless if you didn't subsequently learn how to find a job in the field you chose. Therefore career guidance also consists of providing job search assistance. We generally don't learn job search strategy in the classroom. Therefore most people don't have these necessary skills when they begin to look for employment.
