Career counselors in Orlando use specific interventions when working with individuals on career goals, job loss, burn-out, or career-related counseling goals. One major area to tackle is self-worth and establishing your core value as it relates to your career role. Career counselors have made therapeutic strides in working with individuals on discovering their value and self-worth in their respective career fields. This process allows the individual to advocate for themselves and aim for higher goals than they may have before.
To know one’s self-worth, the focus needs to be on identifying external and internal ways you receive validation. If you are heavily influenced by external acknowledgment or rewards, you might find it is harder to feel proud of yourself without praise. Switching to an internal validation cue can take time, but with career counseling, you can learn to improve your self-worth and visualize your success.
To improve your sense of self-worth when it relates to your career, first validate your individual skillsets and knowledge that is available. Identify what it is that you bring to the career table. Next, look forward and visualize successful situations that are attainable, reachable, and provide positive growth. Be mindful not to let external factors such as money, hierarchy improvement, or world perceptions influence your decision-making. Focus on the positive impressions you see looking back from the mirror at you. These simple career counseling techniques can help spur and improve the positive growth of your career, providing successful longevity and career satisfaction!
