Career Counseling

YWCA Boulder County offers Boulder's only low-cost, personalized career counseling and job search coaching.

Our staff is committed to helping clients achieve career clarity and learn job search skills. Through one-on-one sessions, we are able to help clients write resumes, prepare for interviews, identify skills, and find careers that match their interests and work styles. YWCA Career Services serves both men and women of all ages, incomes, and life-stages. We work with people in career transition, those seeking greater career satisfaction, the unemployed, and underemployed.

We help clients assess their past career experience and where and how to find greater satisfaction. YWCA uses many resources and tools to help clients translate prior experience in to employable skills, find careers that match interests and work styles, write resumes, prepare for interviews, and develop networking skills.

Fees for individualized career counseling sessions are based on a sliding scale, depending on size of family and annual family income. Rates range from $33 to $139 per session.
