The Youth Board of Cyprus has launched the Career Counselling Service, aiming at providing reliable guidance to young people, so as to help them make informed decisions on their career choices and their further professional growth.

The YBC Career Counselling Service is a comprehensive program which provides guidance and opportunities for personal and professional development to young people of various ages. It is based on four action pillars:

  1. Individual Guidance by Career Counselors: These can be arranged by appointment. The career counseling meetings are held at all Youth Information Centers in Cyprus.
  2. Career Aptitude Tests: These are significantly helpful tools that enhance young people’s self-awareness and help them make more informed and suitable decisions with regard to their studies and career paths. The tests are offered to high school students for free. The test results are analyzed and presented to them by our Career Counselors.
  3. Soft Skills Development Workshops: These are offered to young people who are seeking for employment, as well as to young professionals. The workshops take place at the Youth Information Centers around Cyprus. They enhance employability skills (CV building, preparation for a job interview, job hunting tips), as well as other soft skills that will assist the attendees’ professional development (career awareness, self-awareness and self-confidence, 21st century professional skills, etc.).
  4. Career Academies: During the two-day or three-day career academies young people have the opportunity to attend intensive courses, lectures, workshops by high profile experts on career choice, job hunting, professional development, funding programs, professional skills development, innovation and entrepreneurship, etc.
