IMPACT OF FAMILY HISTORY AND PERSONAL STYLE IN CAREER DEVELOPMENT

Taking a closer look at the evaluation process conducted by the Licensed Career Counselor, one begins to note the significance of family history and personal style in determining an appropriate career path. 


For instance, a common practice prior to the industrial age was for a son to follow in his father’s footsteps.  Children often were expected to follow the family tradition of a particular trade, and the family business assets were passed along from generation to generation.  Family names often referred to its given trade, such as Cartwright, Smith (a worker in metals) or Carpenter.  Upon the formation of guilds and trade unions, it became easier for young men to learn a trade other than that of his family through apprenticeship.  However, a lad often was limited to family “connections” in obtaining a coveted apprenticeship position.

"I was immediately impressed by Jan. After going through the Dot-Bomb, I knew that I needed to make a career change and that I needed an experienced guide to help choose the right path. Jan's extensive professional credentials -- including her successful track record -- along with her caring, tough-love approach made it a pleasure to work with her. By interpreting standardized aptitude tests, providing counseling, and directing me to conduct career research, Jan helped me to quickly focus on a profession where I can thrive. As a result, Jan has helped me to get on a new and more successful career path. Thanks, Jan! ."--Graham, 41, Seattle
