Yes! Career Wisdom offers a comprehensive career counselling package called a “Career Discovery” and Career Focus or Career Review coaching sessions via Zoom or Skype video, Australia-wide and internationally.

Not directly. What we do is coach you to be able to secure a role for yourself through marketing yourself, applying for jobs, effective interviews and networking as well as appropriate actions to find opportunities. Having an extensive network, our clients are often given introductions that may lead to opportunities, however this is not guaranteed. The Make your Move online course is very helpful if you are work seeking.

We gather data which covers your skills and strengths, personality, likes/dislikes, background, ideas, possible occupations and use a blend of counselling and coaching skills to assist you to work out your career direction. We do not dictate which career you should choose but help you sift through the most viable options and plan a strategy. We equip you with greater self-knowledge, likely career choices and options. There is often more research and “trying on” (e.g. talking to people who work in the industry or job) prior to deciding. Every client is different so our service is a blend of client-centred counselling, coaching on actions , consulting and advice.

There is plentiful information available on Labour Market Statistics from government and private sectors as well as specific industries and industry associations that you may be interested in researching yourself (eg.visit https://www.joboutlook.gov.au/ Whilst it is important to gauge demand for a specific field, particularly before embarking on major studies (costly, in terms of time, money and life energy) it is purely a forecast and as we are only too aware, circumstances and trends globally, economically and socially can change rapidly. Remember also, that being qualified for a particular “in demand” role doesn’t guarantee success. You may have plenty of competition and will need to present yourself as the best applicant. Equally, if a sector is shrinking and there are not likely to be many jobs but it is absolutely what you want to do, don’t be deterred. Give yourself the absolute best chance through hard work, applied strategy and connection. A Career Focus coaching session will help you define the actions to take.

Generally career assessments and tests are best used with a qualified career practitioner to assist with interpretation and using them as a tool with other counselling and coaching interactions.  There are many tools and resources available free and paid online, however they are often not solely reliable to make a career decision from but can be a good starting point.  You might like to try the resources at Truity.

If you elect to do the Career Discovery, a comprehensive questionnaire and report is provided covering aspects including values, personality, work history, interests, skills and work related factors.
