Career strategists provide guidance on how to manage careers over the long term, including tips on things like networking and continuing education. Ultimately, career strategists want to help people achieve their career goals and live fulfilling lives. There are many reasons why someone might want to hire a career strategist. Some of the reasons include:

  • Career strategist can help connect people with the resources they need to further their education or get started in a new career.
  • Career strategist can help individuals understand their strengths and weaknesses, and then provide guidance on how to use those strengths to find a career that they will be happy with.
  • Career strategist can help organizations create a better work environment for their employees.
  • Career strategist can also help people who are struggling in their current career to find a new path that will lead to success.

One of the reasons I decided to become a Career Strategist and study industrial and organizational psychology is because I’m interested in using psychology to improve the workplace. As a career strategists, I also improve the lives of others is by helping them figure out what they want to do with their lives. This can involve assessing someone’s interests, strengths, and values, and then providing them with advice and resources to help them find a career that aligns with who they are and what they do well!
