“Everyone, at one time or another, wonders what they are doing with their lives or if they are doing all they can be doing. Many of us work every day at the same job often finding ourselves getting frustrated at the thought that we are going nowhere. High School and college kids have these concerns a lot not sure what they want to do with the rest of their lives. Many of them seek out career planning and life coaching for lost college kids.
Career planning and life coaching for lost college kids is great at any time in their college years or even after they are out of college, whether by graduation or dropping out. Often young adults go to college for an education, but they are not real sure of what they want to major in, so they take a general curriculum and just sort of ‘float’ through college trying to decide what they want.
Some students may know what they want as a major when they start college, but then they seem to lose interest after the first couple of years and sort of get lost in the shuffle of college, not really knowing why they’re there. Career planning and life coaching for lost college kids is very helpful in getting them back on track. The coaches will sit down with the students in question and do a full evaluation of their skills, values and goals in life. They then look at what education the student has completed up to that point. The career and life coach will determine what it is the individual wants to do when they get out of college-what they want for a career.
One good aspect of career planning and life coaching for lost college kids is that it shows them ways it is possible for them to reach a certain goal they have for their future. If there are obstacles standing in the way, they will do everything they possibly can to remove those obstacles. If cost is an issue, there are many scholarships, grants and financial aid programs that are available but the students often aren’t aware of them. The coaches help them not only by making them aware of the potential financial help, but by helping them apply for it.
The students can see the coaches on a one time basis or have multiple sessions, if they feel the need. Sometimes it takes many sessions of evaluation, testing, feedback and counseling before the student actually knows what they really want in a lifetime goal. Career planning and life coaching for lost college kids is very effective for students with a disability, making them aware of many programs available to make getting an education and career much easier than they ever imagined.”
