Find me a career … but how? It is a common request asked by many of my clients. There are two challenges ahead namely which career do you choose and once you have chosen a career where do you start? We have therefore divided our career services for individuals into two sections namely find me a career and find me a job.
Let’s focus on find me a career before focusing on how to find a job in that career. Choosing which career to follow is almost as big a life decision as deciding whether or not to get married. You only have one choice. Although people try, it is impossible to follow more than one career as you can only live one life. What’s even more scary is that after just a few years of leaving college or University, your career path almost becomes fixed. You find yourself only being able to secure jobs that are related to jobs that you have performed in the past. It becomes very expensive to change career path once you have started on a certain route. The common phrase of climbing the career ladder is true. Once you have decided on a particular career ladder to climb, if you change you mind or feel that it is not suited to you, you have to climb down and start to climb another ladder.
So where do you start? How do you discover the perfect career for you? I recommend that you start with a simple career choice profile. It is a bit like gardening, it is recommended that before you do anything in the garden, you test the soil to see if it is acid or alkaline. Our career choice profile will tell you in a matter of minutes a lot about you including suggesting the types of careers that you are most suited to perform.
Once you have completed the career choice profile, we’ll offer you some professional career advice and begin to help you develop a personal inventory. Our Career Advice can be offered in the form of Telephone Career consultancy directly with career expert Sarah Berry or through one of our 30-day Career Development e-programmes.
Once you have developed a personality inventory, we then suggest you do some career planning. To help you, career expert Sarah Berry has written a book called “How to plan your career” that is available from this site as a downloadable e-book. Not only will the e-book show you how to choose a career but also how to change career.
Once you have embarked on a specific career path you may also be interested in discovering “how to be headhunted” or “how to love the job you do”.
So our “find me a career” services offer you a step-by-step process to achieving both career satisfaction and career success.
