CAREER GUIDANCE

Discover your Journey

Embarking on a fulfilling career journey marks a significant milestone in everyone's life. Yet, navigating the expansive realm of career choices and making informed decisions can feel overwhelming. That's where About Mind comes in. We recognise the importance of strategic career planning and its profound impact on your overall happiness and success. Our Career Guidance services are tailored to provide you with the insights, tools, and support necessary to unlock your full potential and pursue a career that resonates with your aspirations and values. Whether you're a grade 9 student seeking guidance on subject choices, a grade 12 student looking to explore or confirm study options, a recent graduate exploring career pathways, a seasoned professional seeking fresh challenges, or someone in transition searching for direction, we're here to assist you at every step of your journey.

SUBJECT CHOICE (GRADE 9)

Help with Subject Selection

The foundation of informed and successful career choices lies in selecting the appropriate subjects for Grades 10 through 12. These choices directly impact the range of tertiary programs available, as most programs have recommended and required school subjects. For students to make well-informed decisions about their Grade 10 subjects, they should have a clear understanding of the career path they intend to pursue after successfully completing Grade 12. However, many students find themselves uncertain about their future career options at this stage.

The objective of our subject choice guidance is to assist individuals in gaining clarity regarding their interests, values, personality, and aptitude, and how these factors align with potential future career paths.

Our comprehensive and personalised approach includes:

  • Career Exploration Workbook: Completed prior to the session, this workbook aids students in reflecting on their interests, values, and goals.

  • 45-Minute In-Depth Interview: A dedicated session where our experienced psychologist delve into the student's aspirations, strengths, and preferences.

  • Psychometric Testing: We conduct comprehensive psychometric assessments to evaluate aptitudes, personality traits, interests, and values, providing valuable insights into the student's strengths and areas for development.

  • 60-Minute Feedback Session: Following the assessments, we provide detailed feedback to the student, discussing their results and exploring how they align with potential career paths.

  • Written Report with Subject Choice Recommendations.
     

Through this thorough and personalised approach, we aim to empower students to make well-informed decisions about their subject choices, laying a solid foundation for their future academic and career endeavours.

CAREER GUIDANCE (GRADE 10-12)
