Will the real Career Counselor please raise her hand.

As individuals from non psychology backgrounds, functioning as Career Counselors, offer guidance based on 'Standardized psychometric tests'!.. As providing assistance in procuring admissions, is fast becoming the sole focus of Career Counselors.. As more and more Career Counselors are ending up functioning merely as Information banks... I feel compelled to pause and rethink my title of Career Counselor.

As a Career Counselor, this is what I do.

  • Help individuals see themselves as unique beings by helping them discover themselves in terms of - their abilities, aptitude, personality traits, interests, learning styles, shortcomings, peeves, family dynamics...

  • Help them understand themselves in terms of - what is important to them, what they want from life, why they desire that which they do, what is it that they truly desire.

  • Help individuals familiarise with the world of work and help them discover their place in it by guiding them towards careers which would be the best fit for them. Careers where they are likely to experience a high degree of happiness, contentment and success.

  • Help them chart a path towards their recommended career/s, by setting short term and long term goals and guide, motivate and mentor them towards achieving these goals.

So, should I raise my hand, or do I rechristen my job title?_____________________________________________
