A thorough and practical approach to career decision making
Many college students are uncertain about who they are, what they’re good at, how they operate and what they want to do with their lives. It takes time and reflection to figure this out. It takes self-awareness and self-regulation too. Others know exactly what they want but will benefit greatly from discussing their career aspirations with an objective and supportive confidant. My career decision program is designed to help all college students gain a better understanding of who they are and how they operate in the world. We take time to account for what I call VIPPSS: Values, Interests, Personality, Passions, Strengths, and Skills. In the end, students come away with greater self-knowledge, better self-regulation habits and a better idea of their best career paths. I cover a checklist of practical information and action items in a comprehensive, 10 hour program (divided into 4 sessions) called Career Decisions. (Fee $2500)
