As you get closer to finishing school you'll get asked one question a lot: what are you going to do next? It’s a huge decision, and it’s not always easy to know what your options are or what careers are like in reality. Sure there are websites, career fairs and open days, but these only go so far and you can end up with a lot of information but no way to figure out what’s right for you.
Swivel Careers will help you put it all together. We’ll take you step-by-step through the process of choosing a career with support at every stage.
With Swivel Careers your dedicated career coach will work with you to develop a holistic view of who you are and what you enjoy, before taking you through different career options.
We’ll support you every step of the way, but it’s your career, your choice.
First, your Swivel Careers coach will ask you to complete a few psychometric assessments. They’ll discuss the results with you and ask questions to build a detailed view of your personality, interests, strengths, passions, values and ambitions.
Next they’ll walk you through which careers could be a match, discuss these with you in detail and shortlist the careers you’re interested in.
Finally they’ll help you design your career path, set goals and map out how to get there.
We also offer group workshops in schools, covering things like writing CVs, preparing for interviews and the skills you’ll need to succeed at work.
Before doing the Swivel course I knew I wanted to go to University but was unsure about what course I wanted to study. This course helped me to identify my strengths and weaknesses, skills and passions which helped me to decide what University course would best suit me as an individual. The Swivel course has also given me a purpose to go and complete the University course as I now know where I am heading going forward in my life.
The main difference between Swivel and previous careers sessions was that the Swivel session was based on real-world recruitment techniques, and dealt with how careers and recruitment will actually work in the future.
Swivel gave me a sense of clarity and self-awareness in terms of what to do after school as well as a potential career path.
