Career Counseling | Entertainment Community Fund

Career Counseling

Are you interested in identifying new ways of thriving in your life and career? Our Career Counseling Program assists you in exploring meaningful opportunities to support your industry career. 

Career development is a lifelong process of navigating change, understanding oneself and making decisions that lead to greater fulfillment. Our career counselors can support you in gaining the knowledge, attitude and skills to navigate your career decisions today and in the future.

Through individual counseling, groups and workshops our career counselors will:  

  • Support you in addressing common challenges ranging from the competitive nature of work to creating better work-life balance while meeting your financial needs. 
  • Help you address the barriers to career decision-making, such as limiting beliefs, time and energy management, and adapting to change. 
  • Collaborate with you to develop short- and long-term action plans that increase resiliency in the face of career uncertainty.
