What Our Students Have to Say
The job interview master class was exactly what I needed. I have done a lot of job interviews before, but that's not the same as a professional preparation like this. Recommendation from me!
Kelvin Black
From Dallas, USA
I took the whole career guidance course, because I wanted to improve my job application skills all around and it worked!
Zasha Swan
From Australia
I looked for advice regarding intercultural skills, because it was the first time I applied for a job in an English speaking country. The course was very helpful and taught me a lot. I especially liked the approach of the trainer, which was a lot more fun than I thought.
Frank Wang
From the Philippines
I participated in a career guidance course before, but it was before COVID and not online like this one. I needed specific input concerning my CV and help with the questions/answers of some common job interview questions. The trainer and I found a working solution for everything, so it was really very helpful.

What is Career Guidance? Why is it important?

”Career Guidance” as a broad term can relate to a number of options, typical persons who are taking advantage of those could be the following:

  • An adult who wants to make the most out of his or her work life
  • A confused student who is not sure yet about the subject he shall choose

The reasons to take part in career guidance are related to career and personal development, like we can see in the following examples:

  • Dealing with redundancy at your place of work
  • Seeking a new class or course
  • Returning to work after a career break
  • Building new talents and skills
  • Professional and personal development
  • Going for a promotion
  • Changing careers
  • New job
  • Setting up a business

Whatever the particular situation of the individual is who takes part in career guidance counseling, the common target of career guide is to help bringing the individual in a position to actively gain control of its career and professional future. The use of career guidance is therefore also to help you know more about your professional self and find out what skills and talents you already possess.

How is career guidance done?

An expert career guide will use a combination of advising, mentoring, coaching, which is not limited to any special discipline and may also include fitting interview techniques, a series of analysis, assessments, and other methods.

Highly structured career guidance is also based on your requirements and thus is individualized for you. It can help you formulate your own career goals and plan the path to these goals accordingly and efficiently. This way it lets you explore career options and also show you concrete steps on how to take them.
