The understanding of careers has adapted into a more fluid process with a focus on individual growth and satisfaction, represented by adaptation and change. A change of career later in life can be an exciting endeavour but will naturally be coupled by some stress and uncertainty.
Mid-career assessments make use of both standardised tests and narrative techniques to assist in creating an in-depth picture of aptitudes, personality, interests and values. The holistic nature of this process seeks to understand each individual within their context and aid them in career decision making, whether that be a slight change in focus or a move to an entirely new field of work.
Coaching and mentoring are also offered in line with career satisfaction, motivation, goal-setting, improved communication and better self-understanding within the career context.
