Hi,


Thanks for your enquiry.


To assist you, I would need to undertake a full assessment which is essential to the career guidance process. Important decisions must be made which must be got right for your future. These decisions must be based on the solid evidence derived from the assessments.


I out-line here in brief the career guidance process to help
you understand the service.
I also invite you to check out my web site and have a fuller understanding of
what is involved. www.candeguidance.com
Also have a look at the page Career Fulfilment page.

The process has to be detailed and comprehensive to have value.
The process takes 2 sessions of approx. two hours each on a one -
to- one basis plus a number of hours of interpretive and research work
done in between sessions
. Subsequent follow-up is also necessary. 


 


The client must also undertake some internet research work set by me.

The initial interview identifies your special situation and requirements.

We proceed in a systematic manner to determine comprehensive information
about you, related to all matters which are relevant to the career
guidance process.
We use psychometric tests needed to fill any gaps in the information.
Among the tests I use are Thomas International PPA and TSTs which are high value
instruments used in the main by HRM specialists.

It is only when all the elements of your profile are identified,
clarified and understood that we can make the best career plan for you going forward.


 


We see where all the elements of your personal profile are pointing.


We identify careers which are most suitable for your unique profile.


This is followed by detailed consideration and a decision.


The next stage is to form a strategic plan to get from here to there taking all circumstances into account

The psychometric assessment provides key information which is central to the process.

For example

 

Your Self Image

Work Strengths

Possible Limitations

General Personal Characteristics

Responsibilities Appropriate to your Personal Profile

Job Emphasis and Career List Appropriate to the Personal Profile.

 

We are thus able to identify your natural behavioural style and we can also determine how you are likely to perform at career related functions such as:

Managing and Motivating

Decision Making

Planning and Problem Solving

Communication

Administration

Developing Others


Effectively we seek to identify and analyse your individual personal
behavioural and operational characteristics as they relate to the workplace, also your
general and academic ability level, special aptitudes, strengths and possible limitations etc.


Your likes and dislikes, fears and motivators, occupational interests etc. are all identified and of course your personal circumstances.

Having painted an objective picture and developed an understanding of
you as an individual we then proceed to identify appropriate career options which are best suited to your overall personal profile
i.e. your set of characteristics, interests and circumstances and exam achievements etc etc etc.


 


Following the making of career decisions you are comfortable with, we
work on the best plan on how to get from here to there.

All is discussed, explained and the needs and benefits explained.
Full written reports are provided for clarity and future referral.



This includes


 -  separate professional reports on each part of the process,
-  an overall report with defined options,
-  information on qualifications and courses and educational opportunities,
-  a career/ Job Search strategy,
-  assistance with a modern style CV
-  continuing follow up with advice and guidance.

Subsequent follow up is included in the cost and can be conducted by
phone and email or further appointment if necessary.
Be assured of a service which is comprehensive and thorough.
Contact me if you have any further questions or concerns.
If you can not access the site let me know and I will send a brochure.


 


Maeve, if you are happy with the foregoing, call me at 2894767 or email me for an early appointment.

Kind regards,



Jack Griffin BA, HDE, TTG, DCG, MIGCI.
