You may think that job counseling or career counseling is only for the unemployed, but in reality job counseling can help you get a promotion in your current job. There are many ways that a career counselor can help you evolve into the single mom career woman you want to be.
No matter what sort of job you have there is likely some way you can advance. Visit a job counselor to find out what sort of education requirements there are for the position you’d like to have. Take classes if needed and prepare yourself to discuss a promotion with your employer. Advancing in your job doesn’t happen overnight, but by discussing the possibilities with a job counselor you will be aware of the opportunities available to you and can work towards a certain position.
Job counseling can also offer you tips to help you show your employer that you are the right person for a certain position rather than hiring outside the company. You can learn about the different things you can do to get noticed by the powers that be. As a single mom you may not be available for a ton of overtime, but you can always make yourself valuable while you are at work by going above and beyond your job duties, by being on time and reliable, and by making sure that when you are at work, you aren’t chatting with the babysitter 10 times a day or getting called away from work for anything less than a real emergency.
How you present yourself on your job from day to day can be just as important as the preparations you make to achieve a promotion. A job counselor is not someone that you only need when you are out of work, they are there to help you with every aspect of your career; in fact many companies have a job counselor on the job in the HR department because they know the value of promoting within and advancing current employees. This has a huge effect on company loyalty, length of employment and can cut costs on training as well.
Take the time to find out how job counseling can help you not only find a job, but earn a promotion in your current job. You’ll find a great deal of helpful information and strategies for progressing in your career.
