Do you struggle with finding your career path? Are you struggling with job searching? Preparing for an interview? Writing a resumé?
If so, vocational counseling can be helpful to you!
The definition of success as per the Oxford dictionary, is "the accomplishment of an aim or purpose". An old view of this word often included attaining wealth and power. However, this is not the aim or purpose of all people. Our counselors are here to help you to explore and identify your purpose in work. Some people work to live, and others live to work. Some people place work as a central part of their lives, while others prefer to have other priorities, with work as a less important focal point. Interest, abilities, financial need, time demand, and life situation may all impact career choice.
Here are some situations in which vocational/career counseling may be helpful for you:
-You are a college student and are thinking about changing or establishing a major, but are unsure about making that decision
-You are a college graduate having difficulty finding your first job post-graduation, either in your field of study or in another field
