How to support career choice

Bring structured to the career choice process

By providing people with a logical process on how to make and implement their career choice gives them confidence to make the decision and will also increase their eventual satisfaction with the decision.

Protect against choice bandits

Career choice is damaged by the individual’s conscious and unconscious bias. They are also under the influence of many elements that either intentionally or unintentionally are affecting the choice process.

Family and peer group pressures together with marketing and social media mis-information combine to make it very difficult for somebody on their own to rationally and objectively assess the relative merits of particular career options.

Using our methodology, the independent advisor can help the individual to make this an objective assessment which opens them up to opportunities that previously they would not have considered.

Provide choice tools

These tools help people to develop a far higher level of self-awareness and a good understanding of their interests, personal needs, attributes, skills and motivation.

The profile generated by these tools can then be used to identify the most suitable career direction that they should explore.

Identify potential and areas for development

The coach can request a report that shows how well the individual fits particular elements of the role and the areas that will need further education and development.

This can be used in selecting education routes as well as career routes.

Focus on the future

The world of work is changing at an increasing rate and there is a need for virtually everybody to be constantly developing skills and knowledge. This commitment to life-long learning and building skills that can be transferred from one career to another has some major positive elements in allowing individuals more opportunities to fulfil their potential and maximise their well-being.

If advisors can help individuals to concentrate upon building up these transferable skills and attributes they will be far more employable throughout their many careers and will not be locked into careers that they have fallen out of love with.

Provide career review

It is predicted that people entering the workforce now will have over 5 career changes in their working life. Careers are journeys and there will be a number of times when careers need to be reviewed or changed.

People’s circumstances, and their chosen career, change over time so what was once a sound career decision has developed into a route that is less suitable and motivational.

The advisor can use our methodology to identify the options and opportunities available to the individual at any stage of their career up to and including retirement planning.
