There are over 47,000 options one can take when deciding on what career to choose. That's how many jobs there are in the Dictionary of Occupational Titles put out by the US Department of Labor. The best way to effectively choose a career is to use high quality assessments in conjunction with a professional consultant with the expertise to guide you. Dr. Steven Harvey has worked in the field of educational and career consulting for over 15 years and has authored research in national career and educational peer reviewed journals. He has presented on various educational and career topics and has extensive background in educational and vocational theory (See the About Us section of this web site for Dr. Harvey's bio and a copy of his academic resume).
Career Decision Making ($500): Most Career Consultants use assessments that examine interests only or focus on personality, both of which are not strong predictors of future career satisfaction. Dr. Harvey uses two assessments that examine five critical variables in choosing a career, Needs, Abilities, Values, Work Temperaments, and Interests. These five variables combine to create a complete picture of the client and are used in a detailed process to select the best possible career, leading to increased likelihood of job satisfaction and success. The CECA Career Decision Making package is two sessions:
- First Session: Dr. Harvey will call the client and provide the assessments and directions on how to complete them. In addition, clients will be educated on the process and what they can expect from their Career Decision Making package experience.
- Second Session: During the second session, Dr. Harvey will interpret the assessments and provide each client with two different summary reports and a comprehensive narrative, allowing the client to better understand their findings. Clients will leave confident and with clear direction of the next steps they need to take to choose their career.
Career Coaching: ($1250 Annually) Career Coaching targets executives, presidents, vice presidents, chief executive officers, and young professionals who are looking to excel in their careers, overcome barriers to success, develop a career vision, and create a success strategy.
General Consulting ($75 1st hour, $50 each hour after): Dr. Harvey can address a wide-array of educational and career related issues. Most consulting sessions are complemented with follow-up by Dr. Harvey and additional resources provided via email or phone.
