Students are now confused about what they're supposed to do next. This is exactly what Nicole Oringer said. She is the co-owner of Ivy Educational Services, a New Jersey company that began career coaching four years ago. They help students with their college applications. Why do these students opt for professional experts help? Oringer says, "This is a generation of students that has been given a lot of resources and advice."
Career guidance is essential to today's upcoming group of graduates. NYTimes has it that students and families are willing to spend a few hundred dollars for an hour of consultation that will enable them to figure out what their strengths are, work on their CVs and coordinate interview and job-searching techniques.
All in all, this career coaching session can total up t $5,000. Maura Koutoujian of Jody Michael Associates, is just one of the people engaged in this kind of business. For a $4,995 package, Koutoujian offers his services including a proprietary "career discovery process."
The cost is high yet parents are happy to spend the amount as long as it launches their child into adulthood. "We want it to be a deliberate step, not something that happens," says Koutoujian. He uses strategies and tests like the Highlands Ability Battery assessment, in order to uncover the interests that might lead to a career.
Being out front with the perfect career move has suddenly become a social necessity. Career coaching is important. If you cannot afford the cost of a professional help, your school's guidance councelor may just be able to help you.
This is the cost of parenting and education today in order to lead to a successful career path for the next generation. To further understand what your child is going through, and before assuming he's a typical millenial, find out if your child is a Straggler, a Wanderer or a Sprinter.
