A career counselling session looks different for everyone but each session follows a structured basis that allows for a successful approach leading to profitable results. Here are seven tips for counsellors that will make sure they receive the best outcome from the sessions they provide to each individual:
First and foremost, providing an individual with the space to freely share their problems and listening attentively is just as important as guiding them in their career path. The career counsellors at CuroMinds have the ability to listen patiently and without judgement.
- Understanding the Client.
The career counsellors at CuroMinds ensure that they gather a thorough understanding of the client’s report before moving forward with the sessions. They also need to validate the client’s psychometric assessment in order to be able to identify their skill sets. The initial sessions must begin with “exploring the challenges a client faces before assisting them in resolving developmental and situational difficulties” (Sajjad, 2017).
- Building a Relationship.
An effective session would be one where the counsellor is able to develop a healthy relationship with their client – through which they can gain awareness regarding their past experiences, challenges and achievements with regards to their career. On the other hand, blindly conducting sessions without being well informed would leave little chance of gaining the client’s trust, further hindering opportunity for growth.
- Being well aware of different career fields.
The career counsellors at CuroMinds possess expert understanding of the labour market, latest updates in different fields and can bring the research into their sessions so as to guide a client on the right domain.
- Assessments and Homework.
Regularly giving clients assessments in the form of questionnaires and prompts that help in gathering as much information as possible forms a crucial part of any successful counselling session. They can even do so by providing feedback or intake forms.
- Individualised approach.
Operating on a “one size fits all” approach would lead to little progress during sessions. Therefore, it is imperative that a counsellor is able to tailor their approaches to the needs of every individual. In this manner, they can work with their clients in developing a plan and goals for their career.
Career counselling is a service provided to individuals who are seeking guidance in selecting a career path that best suits their interests, skills, and abilities. In Jaipur, career counselling services are available to students, graduates, professionals, and anyone else who is looking for career advice.
