Career development is a lifelong process that is influenced by a variety of factors, including your personal values, interests and abilities. Career counselling can help you get to know and understand yourself and the job market so that you can make better decisions about your next steps.
Who is career counselling intended for?
Career counselling can be suitable for everyone - for Masters and Bachelors, for freshmen and graduating students or graduates. FSV UK offers the services of a career counsellor free of charge to all its students and recent graduates.
What can you expect from career counselling?
- A career counsellor is someone you can talk to about your ideas, feelings and concerns about your career and education choices, someone who can help you sort out your thoughts.
- A career counsellor can help you find and navigate sources of information related to education and work.
- A career counsellor can give you feedback on your resume or cover letters.
- A career counsellor can help you determine next steps and create a plan to achieve your goals.
- A career counsellor will not find a job for you or tell you how to make a decision, but will help you figure it out for yourself.
A few examples of questions that bring students to career counselling:
"I'm already in my third year and I have no idea what I want to do."
“I'm considering several options, but I'm having a hard time choosing between them.
"I enjoy the field of study, but I have no idea what I want to do when I graduate."
"I know what kind of work I want to do, but I'm not sure what would be the best follow-up field of study for me."
"I would like to know what kinds of jobs are suitable for graduates in my field."
"I like a lot of different subjects and I keep changing majors because I'm not sure which one is the best for me."
"In a year, I would like to continue studying the chosen field, but now I have a break. How can I make the best out of the free year?"
"I really wanted to study this field but I got in and now I don't enjoy it at all."
"My parents wanted me to study this field, but I'm not sure if it's what I want."
