Vocational / Psychometric Testing
We have many variations of career and personality tests administered by our psychological career counsellors. These are highly targeted to tease out a person’s natural strengths and personality highlights. We include 3 clinical interviews and a report at the end which identifies the area of employment that they would be most suited to and find most fulfilling, and then we look at the most appropriate courses to reach that goal. The Counsellor also discusses many different options for learning and locations to best suit the person, which are all factors that make studying either a success or a failure.
The benefits are unprecedented; the cost is fully tax deductible. Our Career Specialists highly recommend this course of action for any new graduate, or student just completing school (year 12 or even year 10). It is also a good opportunity to discover what the long term career goals are to assist with selecting appropriate units for both the later years of high school and selecting the most appropriate course for further education.
Career Counselling/Coaching and Course Advising
We offer Career Counselling and Coaching for people who are trying to make a decision about their next step in studying, applying for jobs, leaving a job, or students finishing up at school and looking at the “next step”. We offer supported guidance and advice for university or TAFE students who may need to discuss their course options for the next year or changing units or even swapping their course over. We even look at the best environment to study in ( online or face to face ), the locations, other environmental factors that can assist in making your future training the most successful it can be.
“Whatever your Career issue is, we can help.”
We do specialist training for new job applicants in “Interview Skills”. These sessions include mock interviews that are recorded and critiqued. The sessions cover preparation techniques, we discuss appropriate documents to take to an interview, image presentation, combating nerves and many other techniques to maximise your chances of getting the job.
