Giraffe Forward Planning

Academic Consulting

As parents, you naturally want your kids to succeed in the future. You want them to have decent career lives working as doctors, lawyers, managers, accountants, engineers, scientists, etc. However, you are worried, because you don’t know where to go next, or you are not certain about getting there. There are shortcuts for your kids, but you need to plan ahead.

By helping your children envision their future career, we will guide them to the faculty and major that they want to study, and allow them to plan for their dream universities accordingly. 

“I didn’t realize the importance of my career path. All I wanted was to enter a top rank university. I am in UPenn right now, but I have switched my major a few times. I don’t know what to do in the future. I wish I could let Giraffe plan for me.” – Christine F.

A Career Plan alongside with Choice of Major and University is Important

Your children have their personal strengths and weaknesses, with each one different from another. By assessing their skills and interests through Holland Codes and O*Net (both accredited by the US Labor Department), and by analysing their personalities through the MBTI test, we help students envision their future career paths.

“I was wondering about Karen’s future career. We thought about business, engineering, medical science, and computer programming, just to name a few. We don’t know which one to follow. Giraffe took a detailed analysis on Karen’s personalities, skills, and interests. They also included analysis on job opportunities in different regions in Canada. Thanks to their support, Karen is now determined to move on to study business.” – Karen’s mom

 

Universities Care about Both Academics and Extracurricular Activities

When your kids’ career options are narrowed down to a few candidates, you will receive customized plans including the courses to be taken at school, additional exams to be written, and extracurricular activities to be involved. Through our effort, they are more likely to save time and energy in order to focus on priority tasks.

“I heard about different rumors of how to get in an Ivy. Everyone has a different idea. However, Giraffe helped me plan my academics and activities. I only took those necessary for me. Therefore, I can save my time and stay focused on my schedule. That’s how I received an offer from Cornell.” – Francis Z.

 

“I wanted to enter an Ivy. I am a big brain. I don’t think I need others’ help. I took six AP exams, took SAT, participated in IB at Richmond Secondary. I achieved outstanding results with a lot of extracurricular activities. However, all my Ivy applications were rejects. So sad. Maybe my approach was wrong in the beginning.” – Isabella C.

University Application

When students enter grade 12, they need to carefully prepare for their university applications. Do they find writing personal statements difficult? Do they find it stressful for an upcoming interview? You should expect such a case, because universities, especially the prestigious ones, use multiple methods to diagnose the right candidates. 

At Giraffe, we help students prepare and edit their personal statements as well as help them prepare for interviews. We can prepare students for their application interviews by having them memorize commonly asked questions. With our support, students are more likely to enter their dream schools.

“I was considered a minimally qualified student for UBC. Giraffe helped me prepare my personal profiles and interviews. I received both Sauder’s offer from UBC and Rotman’s offer from University of Toronto. I feel so glad to have Giraffe with me. Giraffe Instructors are my angels.” – Luke N.

 

“I got all of my subjects above 90%. I’ve heard from the past that I should easily receive offers from Sauder and Engineering at UBC. I think I failed my personal essays and my interviews were crap. I really hope there is a restart button.” –  Kenneth L.
