How to become a Career Counsellor?
Saurabh Nanda says:
“In today’s ever-changing world of new career-paths and disappearing conventional job options, it is not easy to keep abreast with the latest changes in options available. An aspirant can not simply rely on conventional sources of career advice based on old experiences. To keep personal aspirations balanced with the needs of the industry, one needs an experienced hand to hold onto. Career counsellors do that for you. A good career counsellor needs to be knowledgeable, excellent at research, great at understanding an applicant’s personal factors and then matching all those with the best possible options available. If you want to become a career counsellor, then start solving people’s problems through communication and research. There are some career counsellor certifications you can study for, both online and otherwise. But a good career counsellor can be anyone who can develop trust with an applicant by understanding his/her problem and solving it in a step-by-step way.”
