Career Services for Individuals (Individual Career Counseling | Strategic Coaching)

Career Transitions offers individual counseling and strategic coaching services to guide, support, and encourage people in navigating their life transitions.

Individual Career Counseling

Q: Why should I consider career counseling?

A. The advantage of individual counseling is that it provides guidance specifically tailored to the details of your situation. Most people find that their career choices or job dissatisfaction are due to multiple factors in their work and personal lives. Individual counseling gives you the flexibility to explore these issues in depth.

Q. How long will it take?

A. It usually takes six to eight sessions with a counselor to identify the issues and implement a plan for progress. Once your strategy is clear, you may want to enroll in one of our classes; this gives you additional guidance at a lower per-hour rate, along with the benefits of meeting others who are working toward similar goals.

Q. Is individual counseling or a group class better for me?

A. Many people decide to do both. A private introductory session or two can help establish your direction, so that a 30-hour class like Reinventing Your Career is more focused and relevant. Individual sessions can be added between classes or after the class has completed, so that you keep momentum to achieve your action plan.

Q. I'm in the right career but I still feel dissatisfied. Can you help?

A. Yes. For people who are in the right line of work but feel that their work life and personal goals are not in balance, strategic coaching is a valuable way to regain harmony and purpose.

Q. Are you a placement service?

A. No. Although we do not directly offer job opportunities with local employers, we do help you learn how to network and can help you develop productive contacts.
