Why do professionals need career counseling and guidance?
Career counseling goes beyond just choosing the right course or academic stream and is much more than simply getting a job. It is a lifelong process since throughout your life your situations and interests keep changing and you are looking for something different. Due to these changes, a person has to make fresh decisions regarding their career and life. Counseling can not only help you with present decisions but guide you as to what is best for your future.
Professionals who have reached a stagnation point in their careers are often looking to MBA and other courses to climb to higher levels up their organizations. It is important that they learn about their key managerial strengths and areas of development to wisely choose a course suitable for them. Others who are looking for career switch, for them it becomes essential to figure out which industry you they want to move to and if they are actually fit for that?
A common problem with working professionals is that they are sometimes stressed and find it difficult to manage the work-life balance. In such cases, it is really important for you to figure out what is stressing you out – work factors or personal factors? We are sure you don’t want to go through an early mid-life crisis! So talk to professional counselors about it.
Career counseling also helps organizations to figure out what motivates them at work and what doesn’t. The more motivated a person is, the better they can perform at work. Different people are motivated by different things: money, recognition, power etc. Hence it is important to figure out what is it that motivates a person the most to realize their full potential at an organization.
