Here's a list of our most frequently asked questions "FAQ's"
Q. Do you provide one-to-one or face-to-face career counselling sessions?
A. Yes! Career Wisdom offers a comprehensive career counselling package called a "Career Discovery" and coaching sessions in Perth, Western Australia.
Q. Will you tell me what career is best for me?
A. We gather data which covers your skills and strengths, personality, likes/dislikes, background, ideas, possible occupations and use a blend of counselling and coaching skills to assist you to work out your career direction. We do not dictate which career you should choose but help you sift through the most viable options and plan a strategy. We equip you with greater self-knowledge, likely career choices and options. There is often more research and "trying on" (e.g. talking to people who work in the industry or job) prior to deciding. Every client is different so our service is not advisory but client centred counselling and coaching on actions.
Q. Can you just offer one career coaching session?
A. Yes, we call this a "Career Focus" mentoring or coaching session. We zone in on a particular need and help you resolve it. It isn't possible within a singular one-hour session to help you with an entire Career Discover package, as this takes longer. For more information on the Career Focus coaching session. Or, for a shorter session without followup see Career Check-up.
Q. Can you tell me what careers will be most in demand in the future?
A. There is plentiful information available on Labour Market Statistics from government and private sectors as well as specific industries and industry associations that you may be interested in researching yourself (eg. for Western Australia, visit www.dtwd.wa.gov.au Whilst it is important to gauge demand for a specific field, particularly before embarking on major studies (costly, in terms of time, money and life energy) it is purely a forecast and as we are only too aware, circumstances and trends globally, economically and socially can change rapidly. Remember also, that being qualified for a particular "in demand" role doesn't guarantee success. You may have plenty of competition and will need to present yourself as the best applicant. Equally, if a sector is shrinking and there are not likely to be many jobs but it is absolutely what you want to do, don't be deterred. Give yourself the absolute best chance through hard work, applied strategy and connection. A Career Focus coaching session will help you define the actions to take.
Q. Can you speak to our group / association / company about career related topics?
A. Yes! Please use the contact form to outline your requirements and we will be in touch.
Q. Can you get me a job?
A. Not directly . We are not a recruitment agency. What we do is coach you to be able to secure a role for yourself through marketing yourself, applying for jobs, effective interviews and networking as well as appropriate actions to find opportunities. Having an extensive network, our clients are often given introductions that may lead to opportunities, however this is not guaranteed.
