Career Fancy is designed to be an alternative to the traditional method of getting careers advice. Our process avoids having to organise face to face careers advice sessions or trying to work out what to do next after wading through countless online advice sites, each saying something different.
Backed up by information on up to nine different careers, there are specific in-depth details on three of these including labour market data and a local perspective on courses, training and potential vacancies. It can be used by almost anyone, including those looking for their ﬁrst career or someone looking to change to something new.
This online service works by the client answering a series of questions based on four main areas:
The results are brought together and the final profile is created. This includes the identification of three careers that match the client’s interest, personality characteristics and work environment preferences. All this is overseen by a fully qualified Careers Guidance Practitioner.
As part of the enhanced option, we also provide support for those wishing to pursue a career in one of the choices we’ve outlined as part of their profile. This applies to ONE vacancy or CV/Application form only and includes sourcing Vacancy/Training/Academic course vacancies, checking suitability for the client and checking their CV or Application form before applying.
Please note Career Fancy is only available to those based in the UK.
Here’s where we bring your questionnaire responses to life! What will your Dream Career look like?
So, what will the role involve? What will the salary be, what are the growth prospects for the three main careers suggested? Here’s where you’ll find out!
That’s all great, but then what? Your own Plan of Action is designed specifically to show you the way forward. It will explain what needs to be done and by when etc. Essential stuff to keep you on track!
You’ll get your results via a profile created specifically for you. It will be available online via you signing into your account and available on your smartphone, desktop, laptop or any other device capable of connecting to the internet.
We’ve put together an outline of what you get when you sign up for the Career Fancy journey.
A dedicated career profile outlining everything you need to know and do to get you to where you need to go. This will include:
*The three leading career suggestions will include information on
What the role entails, Is the career a good match? Salaries, Hours, Growth prospects, Qualifications and training required for entry, Career Path & Progression and Further sources of information on the career.
The enhanced version also provides online support including where to source suitable vacancies for work, training or courses, checking CV and application forms and supporting their completion.
Well, to be honest, we don’t believe there is another purely online service that is similar to Career Fancy. Many internet-based career research options will come up with suggestions but not much else. We go the extra mile and make it personal and local to you.
Career Fancy could help you:
By doing all this, you’ll have a much better chance of finding the right role for you.
It’s really for anyone who feels stuck! Stuck in a mundane boring job that’s leading nowhere. It’s for those who feel and indeed know there is something better out here for them, but they just need that extra bit of advice that will get them on the right path. Most of our clients are 18 to mid-30s, but the over 40s and 50s have also found Career Fancy to be of great benefit.
Whenever you feel what you do day to day is not enough. This doesn’t necessarily mean just pay – but also what makes you want to get up in the morning and go to work rather than desperately try and find a reason to take a day off!
