Learn to Market Yourself With H-Training

Our internationally recognised programme has been used by many of our clients to further their careers. One reason for its success is the fact that it focuses on ways to make a candidate harness their strength and competencies in ways that make them stand out.

When you sign up to our programme on Career Guidance for Adults, you learn how to:

  • Align your profile with the needs of current employers
  • Find and evaluate suitable positions

Our career guidance for adults programs is comprehensive and developmental between H-Training and you. We help by working closely with the client, which involves facilitation and reflective listening techniques whilst analysing the client’s career path with tools such as our on our premium package the emotional intelligence assessment . Prospective clients should come prepared with the following: 

1. Come With an Open Mind

Clients should always be willing to learn and put new strategies into practice. A client that comes with an open mind, eager and willing to learn and implement new approaches to professional development will benefit the most from our career guidance for adults programmes. 

2. Willingness To Implement Identified Strategies

All of the skills and knowledge obtained will be for nothing if they aren’t implemented. Clients should be ready to put their skills and knowledge into practice. H-Training will open the door (or many doors), but ultimately you must walk through on your own. Our team will provide all of the support required for your career aspirations

3. A Long-Term View

There will be ups and downs in labour markets, so it stands to reason that there’s no guarantee that clients will land their perfect career immediately after their first session. Honing and mastering the skills developed in our program will take time. Also, keep in mind that suitable career opportunities come and go, so there’s no guaranteed way to time the market in your favour. Patience is a critical virtue to hold for the long term. 

Frequently Asked Questions

FAQ

Career guidance is a developmental program designed to help people make and implement informed decisions about their career options. You can think of it as a journey of self-discovery and development, on which people try to match their personal traits and skills with existing career pathways and align themselves to industry trends to find the best-suited job for them.

A quality career guidance program will benefit you by providing you with an expert, objective point of view with regard to your career development. It might be the case that you’re too focused on your job to take a step back and have a truly objective view of your prospects and career opportunities. Career guidance helps give you the knowledge and expertise needed to leverage your career growth and development. 

 

Furthermore, big changes in your career can induce stress, which is why having a career guidance expert to guide you through this time is beneficial. Searching for new opportunities can also lead to plenty of frustration, rejection, and disappointment. An expert will help you navigate these challenges to help you succeed. With assistance for career preparation to interview tips and much more, they will set realistic, achievable goals for you.  

There’s no shortage of unqualified career advice. But if you’re looking for a qualified professional with a good grasp of job market trends and available job opportunities that would suit your skill set, your best option is a career guidance counsellor.

 

Certified Guidance Counsellors assist and advise people about the academic and personal development decisions they could make to further their careers. Because guidance counsellors tend to work with students, there’s some confusion as to what they can offer adults. It’s not unusual for professionals who work specifically with adults to be called Career Coaches instead. Rather than focus on academic pathways, Career Coaches have a broader view of career prospects and the job market, and are best placed to offer advice on academic, personal development, and career issues.

Careers consultants specialise in helping people make their career choices. Their advice can be used to further careers, transition to different fields of activity, or simply to take stock of existing achievements and set new career goals. Career consultants can help you move onwards and upwards in your career, switch jobs, shift professions, or take on a new challenge, such as running your own business. All this and more can be discussed in our Career Guidance in Cork programme.

 

Career advisers can be freelance experts, in-house consultants, or employees of an HR company. Their approach can be very different, and their advice can vary depending on the business connections they have and the types of tests that they use. Some are in favour of personality and psychometry tests, for instance, while others take a more business-oriented approach to their evaluations and interventions. For more on this, don’t hesitate to get in touch with our friendly team in charge of the Career Guidance in Cork programme.

  • Create a sense of urgency
  • Offer a suggestion based upon what you have learned about a customer’s needs
  • Pose a question to the customer that delivers options within the range of the product or service you are attempting to sell
  • Make an assumption i.e. assume there will be another meeting, or that you will arrange delivery of the product

 

An experienced and reputable career coach can help you with you establish your professional goals and support you in making a career move. From helping you draft your CV to giving you ways to cope with stress, career coaches have valuable information to share. However, they can only steer you in a direction or make suggestions for you to try alternative routes, but they can never tell you what to do. Their modus operandi is to support you through your decision-making process and to give you time and space to come to terms with the changes you’re faced with. To find out more about Career Guidance in Cork, why not book your appointment today?

You shouldn’t be wasting your valuable time and resources but instead investing them into your own success, which is why a qualified career guidance professional is highly effective to facilitating your goals for career development. You should consider the following traits as requirements for selecting a professional; 

  • Academic qualifications: reputable professionals will always be proud to showcase their qualifications, so look for experts with education and training in Human Resource Management, Organisational Psychology, Business Consulting, and similar academic fields. 
  • Proven track record: experience is a major asset when giving advice, so they should be well-established and have plenty of experience providing professional guidance. They will have experience training panel members with interview panel trainingCorporate Group Interview Training, and group facilitation. So if you ever go for an interview involving a couple of interview panel members, the expert will know what questions the panel will ask and help you prepare for one of these situations.  
  • Enthusiasm and Passion: an important job for any career guidance expert is to motivate clients to overcome challenges, fears, and problems with self-esteem to work towards success. It only makes sense that they should themselves be highly enthusiastic and passionate in order to motivate their clients towards a successful path. 
  • Professionalism: if you’re trying to achieve a high level of professionalism, your career guidance expert should equally be committed to professionalism. This means always being on time, dressing appropriately, and conducting themselves in a professional manner. 
  • Local market knowledge: local and regional variations in labour markets can differ drastically, even within Ireland. A reliable career guidance specialist must have a good understanding of the market in which they operate. If you’re looking for tips for conducting an interview in Ireland, for example, they should understand common interview techniques and practices common in Ireland – not France or Germany.
