Career Counseling

E-mail Print

Career counseling is an interactive process by which counselors and clients exchange and explore information concerning clients’ backgrounds, experiences, interests, abilities, self-esteem, and other personal characteristics that help or inhibit their work readiness and career planning. Career counseling is a systematic approach to providing information and advice to clients in such areas as outreach programs, training, internships, apprenticeships, and job placement. Although the career counselor’s primary concern is the client’s career development, counselors also may provide screening and referral services to employers. Counselors use information gathered through assessment to understand and respond to clients’ needs and concerns; clients use this information to understand themselves better, clarify their goals and perspectives, and make plans for the future.

Local university graduates desperate to land their dream job have taken to "gatecrashing" company offices and entrance exams in a bid to impress employers.

Graduates have been turning up uninvited at company interviews and written exams, pleading for an interview, and visiting company offices with their resumes but without an appointment.

Some 74 percent of people appreciate these innovative approaches and 43.3 percent believed that people can secure a job through this method, according to a survey of 5,000 job seekers by China HR, a job-hunting website.

Some did succeed, as employers admired their boldness. But other companies are unimpressed and students have complained the practice is unfair on those who worked hard to win an interview.
