Navigating the employment marketplace can be intimidating. Changing jobs or finding a new job is an arduous but rewarding process. Sometimes we hit a roadblock when we’re changing careers, and we don’t know where to look for advice. That is why we at JL Nixon Consulting provide honest and up-to-date input on your insurance career when you need it.
Finding your own work identity comes in time, but having someone there to guide you through the process is wise. Career guidance can give you a helping hand throughout various aspects of your career or job search.
What is Career Guidance?
Career guidance, as defined by the OECD, the European Commision and the World Bank refers to “services and activities intended to assist individuals, of any age and at any point throughout their lives, to make educational, training and occupational choices and to manage their careers.”
Whether you’re a recent grad or you’re already in the workforce, career guidance can offer you tools and assistance to find your next step. Career guidance gives you the chance to be more than just a résumé. When you work with someone from JL Nixon, we get to know you on a personal and professional level, and can match you with your ideal insurance company.
Who Needs Career Guidance?
Business people of all stages of life can use career guidance to their benefit. Career guidance can assess your skills, interest levels, and personality to put you on the right job track. A few examples of when you should seek career guidance include:
- Recent graduates
- New to the workforce
- Mid-career advice
- Lost job
- Career changes
Regardless of your career goals, it’s nice to have someone by your side to give you unbiased advice. Career guidance gives you the help you need when you’re stuck in a rut.
