Post Secondary Career Counselling

Career development is a lifelong process that, whether you know it or not, actually started when you were born! Several factors influence your career development, including your interests, abilities, values, personality, background, and circumstances. Career Counselling is a process that will help you to know and understand yourself and the world of work to make career, educational, and life decisions. 

Career development is more than just deciding on a major and what job you want to get after graduating. It is a lifelong process. Meaning that throughout your life, you will change, situations will change, and you will continually have to make career and life decisions. Career Counseling aims to help you make the decisions you need to make now and give you the knowledge and skills you need to make future career and life decisions.

What Can I Expect?

YOUR CAREER COUNSELOR WILL:

  • Help you figure out who you are and what you want out of your education, your career, and your life.
  • Be someone for you to talk to about your thoughts, ideas, feelings, and concerns about your career and educational choices, who will help you sort out, organize, and make sense of your thoughts and feelings.
  • Help you identify the factors influencing your career development, and help you assess your interests, abilities, and values.
  • Help you locate resources and sources of career information.
  • Help you to determine next steps and develop a plan to achieve your goals.

 

YOUR CAREER COUNSELOR WON’T:

  • Tell you what to do, or tell you what you should major in or what career you should pursue. Rather, they walk you through steps to figure it out. This sometimes can be quite a journey on its own, but it’s well worth your while.

Who Needs Career Counselling?

Since career development is a lifelong process, Career Counselling can be appropriate for anyone, including students in junior high school, post-secondary, out-of-school, and those transitioning careers. The earlier you get started making intentional decisions about your future, however, the better prepared you will be!

Below are some examples of concerns your Career Counsellor can work with you to figure out:
  • “I have no idea what I want to do with my life.”
  • "I don't know what to major in."
  • "I've narrowed it down to a couple of career options, but I'm having difficulty choosing."
  • "I know what I want to major in, but I have no idea what I want to do once I graduate."
  • "I know what I want to do, but I'm not sure what the best major is.
  • "I want to know what kinds of jobs I can get with my major."
  • "I don't feel like I know enough about all the different careers to know what I want to do."
  • "I like a lot of different subjects, and I keep changing my major because I'm not sure which one is the best for me!"
  • "I don't like any of my classes, and none of the majors seem appealing to me."
  • "I have a lot of work experience, and I want to find a new career path to build on my skills."
  • "I was planning on going into the _______ program, but I applied and didn't get in. What do I do now?"
  • "I always thought I wanted to be a _______, but I got into my major, and I don't like it!"
  • "I like my major, but it's not what I want to do for my career."
  • "I know what type of work I'd like to do, but I'm afraid I won't be able to make enough money doing it."
  • "My family wants me to be a _______, but I'm not sure if that's what I want."
  • "I've always planned on being a _______, but I'm wondering if it's only because that's all I know."
  • "I want to find a field to go into where there will always be plenty of jobs."
  • "I want to find a career that will allow me to provide significant financial support for my family."
  • "I'm working towards my career, but I think I might want to be a stay-at-home parent."
