Career Counseling

One-On-One Career Counseling

Career Focus at JVS offers one-on-one services to those in need. Working with a nationally recognized career counselor and utilizing an array of career assessments and counseling sessions, clients can evaluate their interests, values, skills and personality to increase self-knowledge and identify career options. This program is offered at a low cost to eligible participants.

Screening and Assessments

We gather professional and personal goals, skills and personality evaluation, career problems and gaps that people are having to reach their professional goals.


We set the first plan based on personal and professional goals and we schedule sessions for guiding and give orientations to our clients.

Counseling Sessions

Through the counseling sessions, we explore, discover and improve skills, expectations and self-knowledge bringing more awareness and assertiveness to our client’s goals.
