Career Coaching

We understand that your job is one of the most important aspects of your life. This is why we provide a Career Coaching service to assist you to recognise all your career options, or even re-confirm your chosen career direction.

Firstly, we will step you through completing an online occupational profiling assessment. This is a self-assessment that will assist in recognising your key vocational interests and work needs. You can conduct this assessment online and it will take you about 20 minutes.

Our trained interpreter will then review your results and produce a tailored written report for you.

The investment in conducting our online occupational profiling assessment is $195.00 (plus GST).

This profiling tool is most effective when incorporated into a career coaching consultation, giving you further clarification on the occupational profiling conducted, as well as advice and guidance regarding:

  • Recognising occupational options
  • Identifying training (i.e. availability of courses and training providers)
  • Devising a career plan

The investment in our Career Coaching Consultation service is $125.00 (plus GST) per hour.
