Oriented Career Counseling
In the continuation of the new projects in the field of education, "HFI" this year comes with a new service for its students as well as external service (in the future) for students of elementary schools and high schools who are getting prepared to continue their studies in university, at home and abroad. Career orientation for the new service is a necessary facilitator for the future of our students, helping them to select the appropriate field of higher studies in colleges, universities or vocational colleges. The career counseling is focused on measuring the three main features:
- Student’s personality
- Student’s interest
- Student’s intelligence
... Combined with personal & individual counseling / online research, contacts with the respective universities / getting the right information about fees, payments, subjects of educational programs, testing, etc. For this reason, "HF" in the spring of this year, has opened a special office for this type of service being adapted for a nice environment consultancy.
Consulting-oriented career counseling has its focus on:
- Consulting and individual conversations with school students and their parents
- Orientation to the academic field according to their skills
- Testing and evaluation of personality preferences and interests
- Written reports on the performance of career counseling
- Interpretation of personalized data: person-person, e-mail or phone
- Interpersonal counseling
