What to look for in the Best Career Counsellors in Pune?
A short list is provided in the following lines for points to look for in the available Career Coaches in Pune, their common practices, and the right approach to safe guard your interests.
The most important thing is knowledge of the career coach (Not the name of the company), normally companies boast of no of employees/ counsellors. Your concern should only be the career coach, his/her age/experience and expertise about your specific requirement. Aim is to get an expert advice for a life time decision for choosing a right career path , name of the company hardly matters. Companies hire cheap freshers as counsellors to guide which must be avoided.
Ask about the counsellor allocated in detail, preferably talk to him/her in person before the counselling session to access her knowledge and expertise and the specific answer that you are going to get after the session. It has been seen that even after two/three sessions the main question is still unanswered.
Take care for the same.
Duration of the counselling session is important, there could be multiple questions that will crop up during the session and it takes time to answer. A counselling session of smaller then 30 minutes may leave many unanswered questions. An ideal duration is 60 to 90 minutes with subsequent sessions for further quarries. It should be an interactive session not a class room teaching.
Ask this too in advance.
Charges of the primary counselling session and subsequent sessions must be asked for. It is a costly exercise and one must know the total cost he/she is going to spend. After the counselling session a few tests are asked for with additional cost to arrive the decision. An advance information is a must.
Now you are well informed to finalise the career counsellor. Go ahead… and explore yourself in depth.
