Frequently Asked Questions

What to bring to counseling sessions

When you call to schedule your appointment, a Prototype staff person will tell you what to bring to your session. As a general rule, we'd like to see your resume in advance, if time permits. You can send it via email, fax or regular mail.

Depending on your focus for the session, you might also bring along:

  • copies of jobs you have considered, or have applied for
  • copies of past cover letters
  • lists of jobs you might be interested in
  • training options you are considering
  • journal entries or notes to yourself about goals, ideas or dreams for the future
  • any specific questions you have about job search or career transition

What are the payment options for services?

We accept cash, check or credit card (Visa, MasterCard, Discover). Occasionally, we will also create a payment plan with you to divide payments into smaller pieces. We know it's difficult to find the money sometimes for career services; but we also know that you need good career services to help improve your finances. We'll do what we can to work through that process with you.
