Why invest in a process of career orientation?

Often, career decisions are among the most important decisions that you will have to make. Our career counsellors can help you make more informed career decisions — ones that take into account your personal reality and your obligations. The decisions we make together are comprehensive and take into account your strengths and limitations, and other key aspects of your life (e.g. personal/family, finances, physical/emotional health). The ultimate goal is to help you select/attain a satisfying career that does not neglect work-life balance.

No matter if you are a student or work in the public or private sector, and no matter your career counselling requirements, we have a career counsellor for you. And our services are available either face-to-face or through our virtual services (videoconferencing and phone) in both French and English.

    — Daphne

  • "Being at a certain point in my career, in which I was questioning my professional objectives, I decided to communicate with Y2. My experience with the team at Y2 Consulting Psychologists was very satisfactory. They made me take knowledge and personality tests which helped to determine my career interests. They also discussed my career aspirations and my fears in terms of the future. A plan of attack was put in place. They revised the content of my c.v. and my covering letter in order to increase my chances of being called for an interview related to a competition for which I had applied.

  • "These meetings helped me regain confidence in myself and I am ready to face the challenges that are before me. I recommend to all who need professional orientation service to call Y2 Consulting Psychologists. You won't be disappointed."

  • "Y2's career counsellor helped me develop a strategy to apply to jobs. Now, I am able to work on cover letters and resumes with confidence to get a positive response. As a result of the career counselling, I was able to obtain a 6 month assignment within my department. Besides I got a job offer that I declined because it wasn't with the federal government. I am currently looking for a job and I am confident that it would be a matter of time to find it."
