Career counseling is shaped within the framework of an overall assessment of a career goal or career steps that the consultant and the student/graduate will decide at the beginning of the session. Therefore, the content and course of the interview may vary depending on where you are in your career development. A general career counseling interview helps you understand your interests, set career goals that are appropriate for them, and clarify career options that are appropriate for your own values, skills, and strengths.

If you are coming for Master's Degree and PhD planning: Before you come to the interview, you are expected to determine the reason why you need to pursue higher education and decide whether you will study in Turkey or abroad. If you have not yet decided on this issue, we recommend that you clarify your need by conducting a “career counseling” interview with our career consultants.
