What is the career orientation program? 12 months ago
Having a plan is essential to advance in every aspect of life, but it is especially important when it comes to your career. Career orientation is the guidance given to individuals to help them gain knowledge, information, skills and experiences needed to identify career opportunities.
The Career Orientation Platform, Basic Check, provides topics that are crucial for ensuring that your career paths are the right paths. Writing a CV, a motivational letter, developing a social circle, preparing for interviews, verbal and non-verbal communication, career planning, skill, and career tests, and setting goals are just some of the topics that are being developed within this platform.
Career counseling has always been important but only recently has received merit recognition. Previously, people have searched for career counselors to change their career if they weren’t satisfied with their job. Now people admit that this is not ideal. The importance of this program is great because it helps in identifying skills, aspirations, and minimizing mistakes during career guidance. Therefore, everyone can benefit from such a program, which does not exclude even those who are not satisfied with the career they’ve chosen and want to change or return to it.
