Individual Career Counseling Program for UC Berkeley Staff


Career counseling allows you to explore the world of work and educational opportunities and to plan goals you can achieve. The counseling process often leads to personal insights and growth, which will help you maximize the resources and opportunities available to you at UC Berkeley.

Learning + Organizational Development's career counseling program, housed at Counseling and Psychological Services (CPS) in the University Health Service, provides assistance to staff and faculty who wish to clarify career questions and to plan sound and attainable career goals. The program involves a process of assessment and self-exploration that will lead to a better understanding of interests, skills and goals and, ultimately, increased ability to make meaningful career decisions at UC Berkeley. It includes up to four personal interviews, career testing, and assistance in accessing information and resources to help you achieve your career goals. The personal and confidential nature of the meetings will be respected at all times.

This counseling program is staffed by a multicultural group of professionals with training in career development, career counseling, vocational psychology, and related fields - counselors who can offer meaningful assistance in helping you address the opportunities and challenges in career planning.
