Career coaching for students, interns and young professionals
It was then when a young person is dynamic, open-minded, interesting, exciting, when it is still no pressure of the attitudes and limiting beliefs, is thinking about 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 it is advisable to consult 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 years, most young people have not has a certain level of awareness, can not properly set goals and implement them. It is in them and help career coach.
What is career coaching and how it works?
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 narrower in the direction in which the coach performs the role of a personal coach and helps in the realization of the career goals of the client.
His task is to help the client to determine long-term career plans — from one year to ten years, to broaden horizons, to give tools for self-growth, learn to set 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 is no secret that many students have rather low self-discipline. Coach, while working with the client, and also performs Supervisory functions, which allows much faster progress towards the goals.
Working with a coach, students get the following features:
- to understand your own desires, to identify talents and abilities
- to form a short-term and long-term career goals
- to make a step by step plan for their implementation
- to acquire the necessary experience and knowledge on the desired profession even while studying in the University
- to obtain a competitive advantage over other job seekers — graduates in the form of real work experience
- positive recommendations-found skills
- learn how to analyze the labor market and to position itself correctly
- learn "traps" and "pitfalls" of employment process
- to expand their own horizons, to learn to think "widely and state"
- to understand the importance of discipline and self-control, to tools for embedding these skills in their own personality
- learn to take responsibility for their lives 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 truly wants to see your child happy, you just have to let him do that without imposing their own ideas and attitudes, not driving in the scope of their personal beliefs.
It's impossible to learn to fly, not having tried their strength, and just watching their wings more! Inefficient to fly, not 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!
