What do Career Advisors Actually Do?

As a Career Guidance Adviser my aim is to:

“HELP YOU MAKE A CAREER DECISION WHICH IS RIGHT FOR YOU”

Straightforward and easy to do? Sometimes yes. In the main though, the process that you go

through can be quite complicated and time consuming.

There are some misconceptions about the job role of a Career Guidance Adviser and so to give

some clarity and understanding please bear in mind the following:

In order to help you achieve your goal, as Advisers we are required to be the following:

IMPARTIAL

UNBIASED

NON-JUDGEMENTAL

It is also important that you are aware of WHAT WE DO NOT DO as Advisers:

WE WILL NOT TELL YOU WHAT TO DO

WE WILL NOT MAKE DECISIONS FOR YOU

WE WILL NOT FIND YOU A JOB

If you find yourself requiring IAG (Information, Advice & Guidance) you will be the most important person in the process. You will be encouraged to take some ownership for your own career planning. Scary I know but, you will survive!
