Counselling and Career Development

Plan your career

To successfully plan and develop your career, you need to understand what a career is, and the aspects that will shape your career. You must be able to explore career and study options while also preparing for opportunities by finding, creating, and using resources to start thinking and acting like the professional you want to be.

Explore careers

Gathering career information is an important part of making career decisions and choices. The career information research process starts with identifying the information you need, and then using different sources to answer your questions. You may be curious about careers related to your interests and career options related to your qualification.

Prepare for job opportunities

You need to be proactive when preparing for job opportunities. This includes learning more about yourself and what you want, how to identify opportunities in the job market, creating and expanding your professional network, creating a marketing campaign (including your career portfolio, CV, cover letters, online profile), preparing for job interviews, and using LinkedIn as an important part of your career development.
