Counselling

ráðgjöf

All those who are seeking work can get assistance and practical advice, free of charge, from the Directorate of Labour counsellors regarding the search for a job. The emphasis is placed on empowering each individual and to provide him or her with an edge in the labour market. The goal of the counselling process is to encourage individuals to obtain enhanced self-knowledge, to assist them in identifying where their interest is, what their abilities are and in which direction they should set the course with respect to career development.

The counselling that is provided is multifarious and includes the dissemination of various information about fields of study and areas of work and how best to organise the job-seeking process. They offer interest area analysis, assistance with goal setting, provide guidance regarding decision making when it comes to selecting studies and work and the possibilities for job training and study opportunities are checked. A large part of the consulting involves assistance in making a CV, cover letters and preparations for a job interview. All of this aims at increasing the participation and the possibilities of individuals in the labour market.
