CAREER GUIDANCE AND COACHING

Traditionally Career Guidance was focused on assisting high school students in making career choices. Today its application extends to working individuals who may feel stuck, underutilised or need to make a career transition to realise their full potential.

It is important that the approach to providing Career Guidance and Coaching goes beyond merely selecting a job or career but empowers an individual to design an approach to life. The Makings Consulting facilitates such a design through a narrative approach whereby a career conversation is entered into with the individual. The inclusion of psychometric assessments will drive the career conversation whilst exploring an individual’s personality, interests, potential and career values. Formal training that can build skills and assist in creating additional career opportunities will also be identified during the conversation.
This is a journey through which an individual can explore various career paths and gather valuable information and insights to make an informed career decision.
