Career Counseling - What does it mean ?

If you're in a rut and are not sure of what to do for a living, perhaps career counseling may be in order. By investing in a career counseling session, you'll be able to learn which professions might be suitable and hopefully more interesting to you. There's nothing worse than working at a job you don't enjoy. Visiting a career counselor is a positive step towards job satisfaction.

Those who partake in career counseling sessions will first have to take an aptitude test to see which profession is right for them. They may be surprised to learn that their original career plan doesn't suit them at all. In fact, many who choose career counseling end up employed in a field that is the exact opposite of what they originally had in mind.

There's more to career counseling than placement tests, however. Career counselors critique resumes, suggest the best and most efficient methods of searching for employment, help strengthen negotiation skills, assist in getting better salary and promotion packages and generally steer you in the right direction. Since they have a reputation to protect, it's in their best interest to have a high customer satisfaction rate.

Teenagers who participate in career counseling classes and workshops benefit the most. Not only will they learn which careers they are most suited for, but they will also learn which jobs pay the most and even which companies to avoid. Through career counseling they will learn about trends in different industries as well as projected future trends. Students who are happy with their suggested career choices, and the required courses for that career, tend to do better in high school and college.

Society as a whole benefits when people are happy in their careers. Stress due to unhappiness in the workplace dissipates as do incidents of domestic violence. Happy workers are also productive workers. Many business leaders now send promising employees to receive career counseling to determine where they would be the happiest, and subsequently do the most good, within their companies.

Career Counseling can benefit the economy as well. Those who are happy with their jobs are less likely to become unemployed. This means there's a lower turnover rate among businesses that encourage career counseling for their employees.

If you're not happy at your present place of employment, but aren't sure of what it is you'd like to do, you might consider career counseling. Chances are, you'll leave the session with a new, positive outlook.
