Career counseling is a process that helps individuals explore and understand their interests, values, skills, and goals as they relate to career development. It can be particularly helpful for individuals who are unsure about their career path or who want to make a career change.
- Career counseling is offered to discuss the results of the completed assessments.
- Career counseling integrates information about the assessment results and transferability of skills, where applicable.
- The vocational counselor is knowledgeable about a wide variety of disability conditions and their vocational implications. This information is then synthesized with knowledge of many different occupations, job requirements, and potential for accommodations.
- Employability skills include job search strategies that work in the current labor market, interviewing skills to help you showcase your strengths and skills, and how to request accommodations in an interview, if any are needed
- Benefits Counseling is an integral part of the process for choosing vocational goals. My goal is to help you maintain your health insurance and financial stability throughout each step of the process. Through ADEN, once employed, my goal is to continue the process of benefits counseling to address your needs for financial security and growth.
In addition to discussing assessment results, I may also help individuals explore their transferable skills, which are skills that can be applied to a variety of different careers. For example, someone who has strong communication skills may be able to transfer those skills to a variety of different fields, such as sales, marketing, or customer service.
The knowledge of the world of work, the job search and interviewing processes remain the same. The process varies when working with individuals with disabilities when considering additional information about an individual’s restrictions and limitations; the impact, if any, on the occupational choice, transferability of skills, and if accommodations are needed.
