Searching for a Career Counsellor – Are you feeling overwhelmed and finding it difficult to determine if your preferred Career Counsellor is legitimate? Find out how to compare and contract Career Counselling Service providers so you do not make a costly mistake.

 

I remember back in the early 2000’s when I first started my practice (then called HR Aspects) and commenced market research to compare and contrast my expertise and experiences with competitors of the time; the internet was still in it’s infancy and very few organisations advertised on Google.

Fast forward 15+ years and there are hundreds and thousands of career providers spruiking their services on Google alone claiming to be a Career Counsellor, Career Coach, Professional Resume Writer, Career Development Consultant, Specialist or Expert. Quite frankly, for the average individual looking for someone to help them with their career related queries or concerns it is very confusing – how can you possibly sort out what services you need and want if Read More

Career Counselling Blog:- IF ONLY I…… STOP the Regrets and start pursuing your dreams

Dream Big

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

If you could be or do anything in this life what would you do or be.  As children we have so many dreams about what we will do, be and become when we grow up but somewhere between childhood and adulthood our dreams become squashed, buried deep, hidden away or totally pulled apart and reworked because they do not fit our loved ones or societies view of who we should be.

So my question to you is “What dreams have you buried or given up on that would bring you fulfillment, happiness and joy”? Do not place any limitations on yourself such as if I only had a million dollars in the bank and did not have to worry about bills, the mortgage, school fees etc I would be or do xxxxxxxx.

Find a way of incorporating your dreams into your life it maybe that you start small for example you may have always wanted to start your own small business; start doing some research, enrol in a small business course, talk to people who work in the industry and have already set up their own small businesses.

By focusing on what you want (big picture) and taking positive small steps to incorporate aspects of the big picture into your life you will eventually see the realisation of your dreams.

Find the peace, contentment, fulfilment, happiness and joy that you have been searching for.  It is YOUR LIFE after all – You deserve to be HAPPY, content and fulfilled.  So take a risk, follow your dreams and be the best person you can be.  Life is too short for mediocrity.

Career Counselling: What role does personality play in our career?

Career Planning and Development – What role does your personality play in career?

 

 

 

 

 

It could be argued that ones personality plays an instrumental role in not only our career selection but our advancement up the corporate ladder.  Thus, one perceives it to be imperative to not only understand our own personality but also with those we work with.

So, how do we determine our personality type?

Most of us will learn this through trial and error, listening to others perceptions and analysing our own.  It can literally take a life time this way.

But there is an easier way.

As a qualified Myer Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI®) practitioner (QMBTI) one is able to administer and analyse a psychological type instrument that will indicate 1 of 16 possible personality (Type) outcomes.

Broken down into four (4) key areas

  1. Extroversion     V         Introversion
  2. Intuition             V         Sensing
  3. Thinking           V         Feeling
  4. Judging            V         Perceiving

The unique combination of each area will provide a detailed insight into how you prefer to communicate and interact in both your professional and personal life.  Imagine the benefits of knowing how to communicate with your boss or client in a way that is beneficial and meaningful for them.  Would that not increase your personal productivity and efficiency which could subsequently equate to an increase in career development and advancement opportunities.
