Clients

 

After 30+ years in business, Prototype has developed strategies for nearly any client base. We have excellent advice and step-by-step processes for students and recent graduates, for mid-life career changers, for those returning to work after a long absence, and for those wishing to ramp down or cut back on structured employment. In addition, we have developed special materials and processes for workers over 50, for people in recovery, and for anyone whose job layoff or change in marital status has created an urgency around the job search process.

Process

 

Each session is developed around your needs, and lasts for approximately 1-2 hours – although we strongly recommend two hours for the first session, to ensure enough time to develop an action plan and other strategies that will move you closer to your goals. Some of our clients are satisfied with one meeting and others choose to work closely with their counselor for the duration of their transition. We’re located in St. Paul, MN and enjoy meeting in-person whenever that’s convenient for our clients. But if distance is an issue, we’ll gladly conduct your sessions over the phone.

Fees

 

A Prototype counseling session costs $145 an hour (billed in 15-minute increments for only the time used). Although we recommend two hours for the first session, there are no pre-packaged or pre-paid requirements – you simply decide as you go along whether and when to meet with your counselor again. Payment is made at the time of each meeting, using check, cash, Visa, Discover or MasterCard.

Scheduling

 

To schedule a meeting, contact us by phone or email. We will work to find the most convenient time for your schedule, including evenings if you are not available during the day. We understand that your job search may be confidential; when leaving a message please provide a “safe” phone number or email address (typically not your employer’s phone or email!).
