Career Change's aim is to help both adults and school students to set clear career directions to give you a sense of purpose and direction.

Why do Career Planning?

 

This usually becomes apparent when you arrive at a transition point (leaving school, change in personal circumstances) or in a time of crisis (redundancy).

Career planning gives you a focus and a sense of direction and purpose. Knowing what you want to do can save you time, effort, energy and money.

What is career planning?

The career planning model has four stages:

  1. Assessment, interpretation and understanding of work and life preferences and passions for the future.
  2. Exploring viable options - the obvious ones and those arrived at by being encouraged to think outside the square.
  3. Researching those options and testing them against reality.
  4. Identifying goals and a self-marketing package.

In one to three hours, I will lead you through a process that will help you make decisions that are viable, satisfying and rewarding.
