Careers Counselling

Why careers counselling?

The economy and the world of work are changing faster and faster. Suddenly, academic education and professional experience are no longer in demand.  We have to constantly change or adapt.

Even after many years of successful professional activity, we also seek new challenges and possibilities in certain stages of life.

Sometimes, significant life events lead to profound questions about the meaning of life and a change in values, which in turn raises the question of our professional situation.

You’ll get a carefully developed picture of your situation, your preferences, potentials and future prospects.

Are you in such a situation, too? Then, we should get to know each other. In our preliminary discussion, we’ll do an appraisal of your situation together. This discussion will take at maximum one hour and is free. After that, you’ll get a tailor-made offer from me.
