Personalised One-to-One Career Coaching

Are you at a career crossroads and feel the urgent need to do something about it? Engaging a career coach can be a wonderful opportunity to nurture your career and learn more about your professional wellbeing. Think of a career coach as your support partner who wants you to reach your full potential and achieve your goals. You will be specially trained and well equipped with newfound skills as you embark on a new career or navigate a career change.

What is Career Guidance?

Career guidance is a one-to-one advisory session where you can develop greater self-awareness, understand your career interests and preferences, recognize your work motivations, and assess your strengths and barriers to employment. A career coach will be assigned to you and strive to help you gain better clarity of yourself, as well as the employment and training landscape out there.

What Does a Coaching Session at e2i Look Like?
