About the program

The Career Finesse 10 Week Career Discovery Program was developed by our professional career development and human resource practitioner and designed specifically for Australians who are starting their careers out or starting their careers over.

This program runs during school terms and is designed to be flexible and to fit around school and other commitments.

The program explores 3 main areas of career development:

Stage 1. Identify career preferences

Stage 2. Career exploration

Stage 3. Career planning and management

The Career Discovery Program is packed full of years of research and experience coaching clients just like you! We have summarised the most relevant and contemporary information into 10 modules to deliver it in a way that allows participants to learn in their own time, but with the maximum amount of support.

This program gives a broad overview of many topics to address all areas of career development, rather than a deep look into one or two topics.

Through developing this program, we have been able to provide our clients with the knowledge and guidance normally received in about 10-12 coaching sessions in a more cost-effective and accessible way.

How does the program work?

Once you have confirmed your enrolment via our Book Now page, you will receive a welcome email from Danielle with a link to the closed program Facebook page. We recommend that you join straight up. You will also receive a pre-program questionnaire.

From week 1, each Monday you will be sent an email with the workbook (learning module) and the date and time of the Facebook Live group session for that week. You will work through the learning module by yourself. Parents are encouraged to assist where needed.

After week 6, you will be invited to book your individual coaching session with Danielle via videoconference. At this session we will discuss your Career Master and Action Plans and any other career related questions or issues you have.

In between each Facebook Live group session, you will have the opportunity to ask Danielle an unlimited number questions via email if you need extra support 🙂

Participants can expect to invest approxminately 2.5 hours in the program per week. This will entirely depend on the pace at which you work and how much effort you invest in the program. The more you put in, the more you get out.
