Is Career Counseling Worth It?

Maybe you’re the parent of a high school student who has yet to identify their passion, or you’re a college student unsure if the career path you’ve projected for yourself is actually what you were meant to do. Or perhaps you’ve been part of the working world for years, only to realize, “this is not for me.”

Regardless of where you are in your career-searching journey, learning how to find a job you love can be a hard question to answer on your own, which begs the question, ”is career counseling worth it?”

Let’s take a closer look at what career counseling is, why it’s effective, and how Morgan Guidance can help you with your search to find a rewarding career path.

What is Career Counseling?

From the moment you are born, your perfect career path has been a work in progress. Rather than tell you what career path to follow or what major to study, career counselors identify the personal factors that make you who you are, and use them to identify your most fulfilling career path. These factors include everything from your abilities and interests to your personal values, circumstances, and personality.

What Makes Career Counseling Effective?

By exploring your skills, strengths, and interests, career counselors are able to offer the most personalized advice to identify the best fitting career paths for you, and ultimately, which careers are the least likely to bring you joy.

For students, career counseling offers a host of other benefits often not realized. By identifying the career paths that align with a student’s interests, abilities, and values, students are given an invaluable “sneak peek” into what their future could hold. With their most rewarding career paths identified, students can move forward with their schooling and career plan with more focus, drive, and determination, knowing what’s at the end of the proverbial tunnel if they are to follow a certain path.
