ARE you in need of new inspiration or direction for your career plans and dreams?

What you need is a compass for your career.

That is exactly what Boston City Campus and Business College offers you.

The college has a compu-terised career guidance programme, the Career Compass.

This programme is ideal for you, whether you are starting your career or already working, but thinking about applying your mind to something new and different.

“Everyone can benefit from some career clarity – whether it is assistance in decision-making or confirmation of an existing career path,” says Kerry Damons, the college’s head of marketing.

Damons says the Career Compass programme has an electronic as well as a personal component.

The electronic component is very user-friendly. You complete a set of questions that is then compiled into an accurate report of preferred industries and career plans for you. It also provides basic information about a wide range of careers – what it is all about, as well as the ideal candidates for those careers in terms of skills and personality traits.

The personal component of Career Compass entails meeting one of the in-house career advisors at Boston for a face-to-face consultation.

During this consultation, the advisor will discuss various career options available in your selected industry.

For example, if the electronic component has identified Information Technology (IT) as the ideal industry for you, you may be advised to start with learning about the internet, or you may start with programming. The idea is to realise that there is something for everyone within almost every industry.

In this way, Boston hopes to help get you on your way to your dream career.

Those who use Career Compass are not obliged to enroll for a course at Boston City Campus and Business College, but are free to do so if they so wish.

Do not be intimidated by closing dates for applications and registrations. There are colleges such as Boston City Campus and Business College that offer the option to register anytime throughout the year.
