What does a career consultant do?

A career consultant or coach responds to whatever career-related issues are troubling the client. One of the most commonly asked questions is how to determine a new career direction or how to move abroad. Many career consultants have experience in recruitment. Because this question is very perplexing to the person and because it can be a difficult question to resolve on one’s own, the career consultant can be very helpful. We don’t know what the client wants to do, but part of our expertise is to help the client define what he wants to do.
The client may be too close to the issue and may lack the needed objectivity to define an answer. The career consultant is not personally involved with the issue and therefore can guide the client through the steps which will allow her/him to identify one or more possibilities s/he wants to pursue. Because the consultant has worked with a variety of clients on similar issues over a period of years, s/he can be an effective guide. Many people want to move overseas, yet don’t fully understand how this achieved. Often times people are given information by friends or family and are misguided because the information is either old or inaccurate. If the client wants — or sometimes needs — to choose a new direction, the first step is for him/her to define his/her favorite skills, interests, values. This can be done with exercises, various assessment instruments (sometimes called “tests”) and discussions with the career consultant.  A career consultant is there to teach and guide you through the process of finding work, not to do everything for you.

“He recruited me for work in Saudi about 5 years ago and I found him extremely capable and trustworthy. He solved a couple of visa problems for me with great professionalism and determination. I then met him in Saudi and this confirmed my first impressions; he is a truly able and committed individual.He also has a very good background in fields beyond recruitment. A great chap! ”  Kyriacos Andreas Kyriacou – Teacher
