Career GUIDANCE Counsellor
Hi there. I am Janet Labberté, owner of Career Avenues.
I was previously the Managing Partner of Executive Headlines, a boutique headhunting firm with a track record of placement of executives across the board in a wide range of industries. My career spans more than two decades during which time I’ve had extensive exposure to the management of millennials and the placement of most professional titles.
I’m a mother of 2 sons currently at Stellenbosch University and I provide career counselling to other parents whose kids (usually Grade 9-12) need guidance in making important career decisions.
I’m also a freelance digital marketer and blog writer!
Career Avenues - Testimonials
I am a mom of a matric 2021 boy! What drew me to Janet’s profile, was her HEART and PASSION for career guidance and her background of running her own headhunting firms......guiding our kids, having the knowledge of the ACTUAL jobs available, as a major part of her background.
Her response time to messages is very FAST, just the way I like it. My son filled out an online assessment (took him an hour) and we received Janet's summary the very next day. He then did an hour Zoom call with her, exploring the different degrees to study at the Varsities of his choice, as well as career options. Hubby and myself listened in on the Zoom consultation and found it SUPER helpful. At least our son now knows WHERE he can study WHAT and he was happy to suddenly see quite a few more avenues for his year after matric. He has already out-ruled a gap yr, so that really helped. The very next morning we received a summary of the list of varsities and possible degrees in our mails, as well as an offer to contact Janet when we are closer to crunch time.
I just had to share since I am sure we are NOT the only family in this boat.
