Career coaching for students, trainees and young professionals
It is when the young man is dynamic, open to everything new, interesting, exciting, when the load of attitudes and limiting beliefs does not yet weigh on him, it is worthwhile to think about the matter of his life.
Usually, the employment of the graduate as follows: any it "attach" to the parent through a friend or a young professional looking for a job himself, often not their specialty. Sometimes young professionals lack not only professional experience, but also the ability to analyze the labor market, to evaluate the company to find jobs, navigate the level of wages.
Yesterday's students are also not able to form an objective opinion about their own resources and possibilities: someone underestimates them too, and someone — on the contrary, appreciates too high and wonders, receiving a denial of employment.
When is it expedient to turn to a career coach?
In my opinion, if a student has a desire to do a good job, and then build a brilliant career in the prestigious company, or to organize subsequently their own business, planning to achieve these goals is to start another 4-5 year of College.
This "Golden days" for the man: fear, barriers, attitudes, "I can't", "I can't do that", etc., the Student was more interested, he is not yet tired of life, not burdened with family and domestic issues, loans, other obligations do not limit health problems.
On the other hand, at the age of 20-22, most young people do not yet have a certain level of awareness, do not know how to correctly set goals and implement them. It is in this they will help career coach.
What is career coaching and how does it work?
Coaching is a partnership between coach and client which reveals the potential of the latter. It is a process aimed at achieving goals in various areas of life that contribute to the implementation of training and development and, consequently, to improve the competence and professional skills of the student. This is a technology that moves a client from the scope of the problems in the sphere of the most effective solutions.
Career coaching is a narrower direction in which the coach acts as a personal mentor and helps in the implementation of the client's career goals.
Its task is to help the client determine long-term career plans - from one to ten years, expand horizons, provide tools for independent growth, teach goals and implement them.
The coach helps the client objectively assess its own resources and make up for their lack. Also, joint work with a personal mentor allows the young person to identify their own talents, abilities, tendencies, to understand its uniqueness, to form the answer to the question: "Why the employer should hire You?"
It's no secret that many students have rather low self-discipline. The coach, while working with the client, also performs monitoring functions, which allows the latter to advance much faster to the set goals.
Cooperating with the coach, students receive the following opportunities:
- realize their own desires, reveal talents and abilities;
- form short-term and long-term career goals;
- make a step-by-step plan for their implementation;
- to acquire the necessary experience and knowledge in the required specialty even while studying at the university;
- to get competitive advantages over other job seekers - graduates in the form of real work experience,
- positive recommendations, acquired skills;
- learn to analyze the labor market and correctly position themselves;
- learn "traps" and "pitfalls" of the employment process;
- to expand own horizons, to learn to think "broadly and in a state way";
- to realize the importance of self-discipline and self-control, to obtain the tools for embedding these skills in one's own personality;
- learn to take responsibility for your life and everything that happens in it.
In conclusion, I would like to add the following: the earlier you recognize the tendencies and talents of the child, the teenager, the student, the more likely it will be able to achieve meaningful results in career and in life. You know that over 40 years we spend at work 74 880 hours of our lives? It's very, very much! If we do what I like, what happens, what the soul is happiness, isn't it?
I'm sure every parent sincerely wants to see his child happy, we just have to let him do this without imposing our own ideas and attitudes, without driving us into our personal beliefs.
It is impossible to learn how to fly without having tried your strength, but just watching others waving their wings! It is not effective to fly without knowing where and why!
Now, using the broadest possible information fields, it was not difficult to conduct a self-test and determine in what sphere of activity should manifest itself where you can achieve maximum success, getting not only a good salary and social package, but the real pleasure from work!
