In this unstable economy full of uncertainties, the aspect of careers may seem intimidating, whether you’re just joining the workforce or having second thoughts on your current career choice

Our lives are mostly centred around our careers, as it makes up almost one-third of our lives and totals up to almost 90,000 hours at work, according to an industrial-organisational psychologist and data scientist, Andrew Naber.
Therefore, we need all the help we can get to make sure we make the right informed decision when it comes to our careers.
Career counselling can assist our decision-making process when it comes to making the right career decisions
Some of the benefits of career counselling include:
You’ll be able to clarify your career goals by connecting who you are with what the workforce can offer, allowing you to make informed decisions for your career prospects.
It helps you explore your career options by studying your personality, capabilities, interests, and more.
It allows you to discover your strengths and weaknesses through personality tests, aptitude tests, and more.
You’ll be able to learn key skills, as some career counselling with career advisors will allow you to learn what to do for job interviews and career negotiation.
The counselling will help you strategise for your current or future career plans customised for you.
