It's a Process.  And then it keeps repeating...

Get to Know Yourself

Explore Possibilities

Make a Choice

Make it Happen


The career planning process involves getting to know yourself through reflection and assessments, exploring possibilities by doing research, making choices and a decision then putting a plan into action.  Depending where you are in the process we will explore what's important to you and create action steps and accountability to help you reach your goals. 


As much as you’d like to select a career choice and stick to it, life doesn’t always work out that way. Career planning isn’t a one-time decision, it’s an ongoing cycle that you will re-visit throughout your life. 

"By failing to prepare, you are preparing to fail."
~ Benjamin Franklin
