“Your work is going to fill a large part of your life, and the only way to
be truly satisfied is to do what you believe is great work. And the only
way to do great work is to love what you do. If you haven't found it yet, keep looking. Don't settle. As with all matters of the heart, you'll know when you find it.”

 

– Steve Jobs -

ALL CAREER SERVICES ARE OFFERED ONLINE

 

WE HAVE CRAFTED A FULLY ONLINE, INTEGRATED CAREER GUIDANCE AND COACHING SOLUTION THAT IS AS VALUABLE AS AN IN-PERSON CONSULTATION. 

  • The online solution offer the same value (and more)

  • It is just as in-depth and thorough

  • It allows you the flexibility of completing the assessments in your own time and in your own space

  • It is a much more efficient process

  • It includes face-to-face meetings via Zoom so we still get to "meet" you

 

SUBJECT CHOICE ASSESSMENTS

Many Grade 9s don't realise the impact of their subject choice decisions until it's too late.

At such a young age, it is so hard to know what's out there and which career options you may want to consider in future.

 

Using a variety of assessments, we help to ensure that the school subjects you are choosing are in line with your natural strengths and interests. We take a long-term view of possible suitable career options to make sure that you are not prematurely closing any doors and are setting yourself up for academic success.

 

We help you to make sense of your options and gain clarity about what is required to enter into various careers so that you can make subject choice decisions with confidence. 

"Candice came very highly recommended, and just at the right time! My daughter was struggling to make decisions with her Grade 10 subject choices as well as what her future career path may be. 

 

It was such an incredible and valuable experience, and most definitely money well spent! Candice, your feedback was so thorough and accurate. Your knowledge, professionalism and passion left us knowing not only her subject choices but potential career choices suitable to Jenna’s personality.

Thank you for everything, it is greatly appreciated!"

CAREER GUIDANCE ASSESSMENTS

DOES THIS SOUND LIKE YOU?

All your friends seem to know what to do after school but you don't have a clue!

You have so many interests and have no idea how to narrow them down.

Your parents or teachers want you to make a decision soon, but you feel overwhelmed.

Your parents / friends / teachers have given you conflicting advice and you don't know whose advice to take.

You have heard that there are not many jobs available in the career you're interested in.

You just don't really know what's out there.

You're not sure if you can study in your field of interest with the subjects you take.

You are not really interested in very many jobs and feel like your options are limited.

You are feeling stressed about your future and under pressure to make the "right" choice.

You're not sure if you want to study at a university.

You have a pretty good idea of what you want to do, but need some reassurance, and some direction.

You have no idea how to get into your field of interest.

You want to know more about university and college entrance requirements.

You feel like the world of work is changing so fast - the range of career possibilities is quite daunting.

You don't know where to start!

The decisions that you make at school have a massive impact on your life – affecting not just your further education, training or employment, but also your future opportunities, social life, finances and mental and physical health.

Our goal is to prepare you to transition smoothly towards a career path that you love and that you can be successful in.

You will feel a lot more motivated at school and excited about your future when you have a clear understanding of yourself and how you might want to live and work when you leave school.

By learning more about yourself and equipping yourself with knowledge, you will be able to feel more in control and have an optimistic outlook on life and a greater sense of purpose and direction.

I can highly recommend Candice's Online Career Guidance services for your teen.


Candice took our unusual home education journey in her stride and took time to really understand our son, his interests and passions. He was somewhat reluctant, but Candice drew him out and engaged him fully. 
She helped him to see how he could use his passions (sailing and the outdoors) in a number of different career options which were carefully researched and included a number of useful links in her detailed report.


She also helped him to understand how his personality and strengths influence the way he learns and interacts with others.

ADULT CAREER COACHING

DOES THIS SOUND LIKE YOU?

Do you want to figure out how you can live your purpose?

Do you find yourself asking if you can really do your current job for another year or for the rest of your life?

Are you feeling disconnected, bored or overwhelmed at work?

Does your work leave you feeling burnt out with little to no energy left to enjoy your life outside work?

Are you asking yourself if it’s too late to realign your initial dream with your current reality?

Are you unsure of what steps to take to enter or re-enter the job market?

Are you ready to make a career “pivot” or “swerve”?

Are you wondering if there’s something out there for you that you haven’t considered?

Do you have lots of ideas but little focus and direction?

Are you feeling disappointed that your career hasn’t turned out the way you expected?

Do you feel like you have learned so much more about yourself since you made your initial career choice?

Do you feel the need to re-look at your original choice to see whether it should be redirected or altered?

Do you find yourself day-dreaming of all the other things you could be doing with your time?

Careers are a lot less simple and predictable than they were in the past. The fast pace of economic and technological change means that staying at one company from entry-level to retirement is a thing of the past.

Many adults are now looking beyond the financial and stability factors related to full-time corporate employment, and placing more emphasis on their personal needs such as job / career satisfaction; work-life balance; a sense of personal achievement; and doing work that reflects one’s personal values.

The career coaching process enables you to explore your unique gifts and potential and apply this to your career path and choices going into the future.

Candice's approach is grounded in intuition and perceptiveness; as such, she treats each client as a unique individual and tailors the sessions accordingly. However, she always coaches from a place of empathy and understanding, while remaining firm in the belief that self-awareness is key. 

 

She is there to be your sounding board, to provide you with objective insights which will help you to gain clarity and guide you towards your goals. Her aim is to help you find out what you’re good at and what you love. During the coaching process, we delve into your ideas and passions in order to move closer towards determining your purpose. Next steps are to find out what the world needs and what you can get paid for. Candice assists her clients to replace limiting beliefs and fears with empowering thought patterns and action steps.

Thank you, Candice, for your professionalism and patience when I was seeking career guidance.

 

I absolutely chose the right person to assist me in unravelling where I was, where I wanted to go and how I would achieve my goals. I needed to clear the fog and take a leap of faith that I ultimately knew was the right thing to do. The difference was how would I get there. Your assessments were accurate. I could step back and redefine my goals.

 

After months in a new role, I believe that without your experience, patience and advice I would not have taken the jump out of my comfort zone.

 

You are an amazing person to work with and I have appreciated this adventure in so many ways! Thank you!”

After 3 weeks of tests, analysis, and goal setting we identified and considered my options for going forth. Candice's passion, realism, and knowledge of the field has helped me identify my career goals. We worked on breaking the end goal into smaller feasible steps which I can start working on immediately. In addition to setting my professional goals, we also explored various hobbies that'll satisfy my far-flung interests. I am forever grateful for the hard work she has put into helping me make tough decisions.
