Career Transition

A career transition is an exciting and (often) daunting time, where alternative careers are considered. Generally the process includes elements of both career counselling (in order to identify and give consideration to options), followed by career coaching (to get the transition happening). Some examples of the type of question CareerScope counsellors might hear in career transition include:

“I've always wanted to be a [you fill the blank]. Is this realistic? How do I make it happen?"

"I love being a mum/dad, but I am ready to move back into paid work. But I don't know where to start."

 

CareerScope counsellors have available a variety of tools that may be incorporated in the discussion. The tools look at elements such as individual career values, career motivators, career interests and personality preferences.

The career transition program typically involves meeting regularly over at least 6 sessions.

Vocational Assessment

Some clients are looking for an objective evaluation of their personal characteristics and preferences to see how these might correspond to particular jobs. This differs to careers which are highly individualised, and instead focuses on the core-characteristics of particular roles. The vocational assessment involves a counselling session as well as completing nine psychometric inventories conducted by a registered psychologist. Following this, you will receive a full report incorporating the results of the assessment. You will meet (either face-to-face or over the phone) the careers counsellor to discuss the results. The report will include some suggestions of job titles with characteristics which match your results. A vocational assessment can be helpful to help clarify ideas and for people asking themselves:

“I just want an objective measure of whether I might be suited to
working as a (you insert job title here).”

While the tools are excellent, well validated and highly regarded for their purpose, they might be used as a starting point for a broader career discussion.

 

 

Vocational Assessment: $700. Career counselling / coaching is available at $150 per hour.

 

CareerScope counsellors believe you have the answer, you just need to be asked the right questions.
