The UCT Counselling and Career Centre enables students to consult the next step after finishing their studies – choosing a career. Career counselling helps students pick a career that is best suited for them, and we also host seminars regarding the topic of preparation for professional life. Students can also come in to consult their CVs.
Career consultation and coaching
As part of career coaching, you can clarify what is the best way to build your career. With the help of professional counsellors you will find out what type of work you should be doing, what you personally fit for, you will find out what are your strengths and talents and what are possible areas for development. With this type of consultation, you and your counsellor will have more in-depth conversation and questions. It is possible that you will encounter questions that you may not ask yourself and that the counsellor will help you clarify your short and long term career goals.
Duration: 55 min
At a career consultation, you can address a specific topic related to your career situation. For example, reviewing your CV and cover letter, making a decision between specific job offers, preparing for a specific interview, clarifying topics such as presenting your own strengths, reflecting on wages and how to ask for an adequate wage, how to display your expertise or how to prepare for the Assessment Centre. The counsellor will be able to answer all these questions. You can come to this meeting several times. For example, you can prepare for the first interview at the first consultation, at the second consultation you can discuss what offer to choose. The counsellors advise you on the basis of their experience in practice.
