What is a Career Consultant?
A career consultant is a person who offers guidance to individuals looking to make professional changes or people who are making difficult decisions about their careers. Career consultants are also known as career coaches or career advisors.
The role of a career consultant is to assist individuals to make decisions and then match that job with the candidate’s skills and experience.
Career consultants will normally work one on one but may also work with small groups of 5 to 8 who may be just starting out looking for work or experienced people who are not sure what direction their career should take.
Career consultants use a variety of techniques to assist people with their career development including research, networking, and work experience. They can offer advice about job vacancies and the state of the employment market in general.
They work with people who are looking for a new position or have been made redundant.
Career consultants can also offer help with structural changes such as mergers, takeovers, and restructuring. This could include identifying skills needed for future jobs, investigating alternative careers, and finding a suitable new employer.
