How to prepare for a career counselling session

Consider the following questions:

  • What do you need help with?
  • Does your resume need improving?
  • Are you confident in addressing Key Selection Criteria?
  • Are you able to talk about your skills in an interview or are you a little rusty?
  • Are you having trouble making a decision on the type of work you would like to do?
  • Are you having trouble deciding what types of positions to apply for?

It is ok if you have not done this preparation before your session, however good preparation ensures a clear intention for the session and the career counsellor can centre the focus of the session on the career outcomes you are trying to achieve. CCCA career practitioners will provide services to people experiencing barriers to employment.   Each CCCA career practitioner will explain the fee structure at the first interview and provide a guide in relation to the number of sessions needed.
