What’s the difference between career counselling and career advising?

A career counsellor helps you make choices about your career path based on your strengths and interests. They can help you find out what you can do with your degree, whether that means entering the job market or continuing your studies.

A career advisor helps you with your job search. They can give you tips and resources to help you land the job you want.
