Career counselling and vocational guidance

Choosing a job is a difficult decision with a major impact on your professional future.


Many times we are in the situation where we want to make a change to our professional life or for various reasons we are compelled to change our jobs.


In any of these cases, the directions we must head to or the decisions we must take are not at all easy, especially if our previous experience was not exactly the right one and we want to avoid it. We need specialized guidance in order to avoid wrong choices, failures, weak performances, abandonment or demotivation, which all lead to depression. The right choice at the right moment has more chances for a safe investment in our professional future and in other resources.


We are here to help you get over this impasse easier and to increase the chances to find an appropriate job according to your aspirations and your professional training, to the labour offer existing on the local market, but not the least, a job according to your abilities.
