FAQs About Working with The Savvy Career Counselor
Who do you work with?
Career professionals, including coaches, career counselors, and employment counselors. If you are interested in career issues, you are a good candidate for my services.
What's the process?
I offer a range of services that can be tailored to your training and consultation needs.
Email me at Karen@TheSavvyCareerCounselor.com and tell me what you would like help with. I work by the session, so if you have a single burning question that we can address in one session, we'll meet once. If you want ongoing consultation, we will develop a schedule that works for you.
I already have a private practice — how can you help me?
If you are reading this, there's probably something about your private practice that isn't working for you. It can be a relief to talk about your struggles with someone who knows exactly what you are talking about. I can help you diagnose the problems facing your practice, and work with you to develop solutions that work for you.
How do I form my own consultation group?
If you have a group of people that you work with, or even a group of professionals in your network that are all struggling with similar issues, you can hire me to work on an agenda determine by your group.
You may be a group of college career counselors who are all hoping to start a private practice some day — we'll design a program that addresses your questions. Or you may regularly get together with a few colleagues, and decide that you want to do some more in-depth work.
I will work with groups of between 2 and 6 people.
Is this worth it?
I regularly hire other professionals to help me with parts of my business that I struggle with — website design, tax preparation, graphic design, printing. Tapping the skills and resources of the right professional makes my business look great. I offer deep experience in building a private practice, and have helped many clients launch consulting businesses of all types. And since I work by individual sessions, you can try me out for one session, and then decide for yourself.
