The data lover

You probably also have loads of nifty tools to help you, like the free BridgeU platform. However you're collecting it, mastering data is amazing skill to have - we salute you!
You're a truly inspiring guidance counsellor - your students should count themselves lucky! You know that the biggest motivation for students is setting goals in the short, medium and long term, and you always use their ambitions to keep them on track.

The organisational guru
The secret star player of any team, you're always keeping everybody on track and on time. You know what deadlines are coming up, what documents are outstanding for each student, which teachers need to write references and recommendations... Above all, you're a person with a plan! You probably like to start the guidance process as early as possible, and use organisational tools to track student interests and plan accordingly, and then make sure they're following the application journey in a timely manner.

The extracurricular champion
This is a brilliant counselling style, and it shapes students' lives and futures far beyond the time you actually spend with them! You understand how valuable extracurricular pursuits are, and you're gifted at conveying this value to students and getting them excited about exploring their abilities and pursuing their passions. You know that trying different things can be the spark that ignites a lifelong career, and you're also aware of how extracurriculars can boost university applications. Crucially, you understand that it's not just doing the activity that matters, but for students to be able to express how it's benefiting them. That's probably one of the reasons why you're such a fan of the free BridgeU platform!
