Equipping clients with insight and knowledge to begin a meaningful job search, create their own job, or focus on building new capabilities.
It is also important that you discuss with the client their current career objectives. Are they looking for any job, which may be seen as a short-term solution (for example, to save money to go back to school), or are they focused on finding a job that matches their broader, long-term career objectives?
Even if their goal is to get a job now, you can help them explore their career interests to ensure that they take the most appropriate available job to help them get on the path to a longer-term rewarding and in-demand career. It is even possible that they may decide, at this point, to veer off the job search path to create their own job or focus on learning to acquire new skills.
