What kind of services do you provide?
We provide personalized career and college coaching services to high school as well as college students. Our services are designed to cater to students’ needs at every stage of the college application process, from their freshman year to their senior year. We offer several packages, including the Essential Package, which includes comprehensive career and college assessments, and Freshman, Sophomore, Junior, and Senior Packages that coach students through time-sensitive deadlines. Our Application, Common App, and Essay Packages are designed to help students create a unique college application profile that stands out. Additionally, we offer workshops, resources for parents, and customized packages to meet the needs of each family.
What is the ideal time to begin planning for college?
We have found that starting to think about and to prepare for college should ideally start during the summer before your high school freshman year, but getting help later can still be of benefit to you
Why begin so early. Won’t my student’s interest change?
Yes, your student’s interest might change but not his or her aptitudes. We rely heavily on your student’s natural hard wiring (aptitudes) to generate results. When you start the process early it gives our team the much needed time to a relationship with your student that allows us to mentor them to refine their choices, improve learning/test scores, own how they are wired, select the correct high school classes to lessen the amount of time and money they spend at college and use summers as well as breaks to shadow/ test-drive careers they’re interested in. It also allows us to guide students on how to record life events for a few years to build an impressive essay for both college and scholarship interviews. All this also builds much-needed confidence to make the most of college years and enjoy it without the stress of the unknown
Does College Career Consulting work for and/or endorse specific colleges?
No, we do not. We do not match students to any specific college but we give you a list of schools or universities that are a good fit for your students’ personality and career choice.
How is College Career Consulting different from other services?
College Career Consulting stands out from other career services in several ways. Firstly, we collect and analyze data in a unique and comprehensive way, integrating multiple assessments to create a personalized profile that offers a holistic view of your student. Secondly, we provide personalized coaching and ongoing mentoring, tailoring our approach to the needs and goals of each individual student. Finally, our ability to communicate the results of our assessments and coaching in a unique and engaging way has proven to inspire excitement, confidence, and hope in our students. We are more than just an assessment – we offer a comprehensive and personalized approach to college and career planning that sets us apart from other services.
Do the sessions have to be face-to-face or can they be done in a different format?
We understand that students have busy schedules, which is why our sessions are a combination of both face-to-face and remote sessions. While we love meeting with our clients in person, we initially connect via video chat to save on travel time. Whether we meet with you in person or remotely, rest assured that our sessions are designed to be engaging, informative, and tailored to your individual needs and goals.
Will College Career Consulting tell me what my career should be?
Yes and no. We will provide comprehensive and exhaustive data to help you make the best career choice. However, it is up to the student to make the final decision. We will provide a list of good career fits as well as poor fits. We will explain how those careers match or don’t match the student’s learning style preferences, natural aptitudes, temperament, values, and interests.
What are aptitudes?
Everyone is born with certain aptitudes that can be developed to make you special. Aptitudes are natural talents, special abilities for doing, or learning to do, certain kinds of things easily and quickly. It is the hardwiring of your brain. It is your ‘design’ and they have little to do with knowledge, culture, education, or even interests. Your aptitudes do not change and are different than your personality, interests or skills, which do change over time. Since your aptitudes come easy to you and do not change they are foundational to building a satisfying career profile unique to you.
