  • Why do I need a Career Counsellor?
    Let's imagine you have a workplace challenge, demanding boss, unsupportive environment, may get retrenched or facing a career crossroad. What will you do? Maybe have a chat with my network. Friends provide well-intended meaning but may sound biased due to their personal experience. Information in the internet is overloaded. LinkedIn posts are unfiltered or too broad. A Professional Career Counsellor offers clarity and a new perspective, tailored to your existing scenario. He/she will understand, assess, discuss and provide the right intervention and tools to achieve your intended outcome.
  • What's the difference between career development and job placement?
    Career is a journey of lifetime experiences across paid and unpaid jobs. It’s a broader scope that entails work and life. Everyone goes through a career life stage. Job placement is about putting people into jobs. Can be seen as a direct recruitment function. Problem arises due to folks getting into roles that don't fit right into their personal characteristics and traits such as values, interests, skills, personality. As a result, they get restless and frustrated with their career choice. They work, simply to bring home the dollars and cents. Career decision-making is known to be complex. To ensure people are placed in the right job roles, a set of analysis has to be produced and interpreted by a Professional together with you. This involves a series of 1-1 engagement.
  • Why isn't my private career coaching free but local government agencies offer complimentary?
    Trust me, we’ll love to do this for charity! But we got bills to pay. We have worked tirelessly with our past clients (tech professionals, Specialists, mid-senior Executives) to custom build their personal career plan, so that they can see results upon implementation. We guide them to resolve workplace issues, provide alternatives on optimizing their talent, analyze their profile for better career growth or find ways to develop stronger workplace relationships. There are deliverables and post-coaching support with deep career counselling sessions to provide the right intervention and solutions. If you just need any job placement, it's likely we aren't the right people for you. Hence, a fair and equitable fee for the 1:1 engagement. There is a common saying -- if you don’t invest in your career – tell me, who will?
  • Am I right to say that the Career Counsellor will do all the heavy lifting for me?
    A Career Counsellor seek to understand how you feel and think from your current situation. We use a professional PCT (person-centered therapy) approach by Carl Rogers (1940s). A humanistic method to learn about your profile and experience. The Counsellor guides, influences and empower you to transform from where you are, and how you would like it to be, not withstanding factors that are uncontrollable. For example, to switch to a new career despite zero experience. The client works with the Counsellor to make their plan a reality. Therefore, it's a two-way process. Think of the alliance as a partner (Career Counsellor).
  • Can a Career Counsellor help me with job search, resumes and interviews?
    Absolutely! Roles are interchangeable from Career Counsellor to Career Practitioners / Job Coaches.
  • I just need a job to pay my bills. I don't need any career advice.
    Sure. We get it. Reach out to any local career centres, recruitment agencies, job portals or executive search firms. We are unable to help with job placement since Careergowhere is not an online recruitment site. We help to increase employability success and get working professionals land into suitable jobs through the art and science of career counselling.

For complimentary intake session, we trust that you will appear as promised unless there are unforeseen circumstances. We set aside time and effort to support you.

  • Can I postpone my session that I have booked?
    We understand you may have last minute commitments but we also have to be mindful of scheduling, in case there are others who need the career counselling sessions. So, we decide that you can use the free pass once only for complimentary intake session and twice for paid sessions. However, we are flexible - if there is a need to postpone, let us know the reason and we can discuss on a case-by-case basis. On the other hand, we do encourage you to maintain the momentum.
