    careers guidance

    Hello.

    Careers Service : careers guidance
    What is careers guidance?

    Careers guidance is the support offered by qualified and experienced advisers to help you work through the process of career choice. It is impartial, confidential, and is focussed on your individual needs. Careers guidance can help you clarify where you are in the process, identify what you need to do next and how to go about it.

    Is "careers guidance" BE? Is "career guidance" AE?

    Thank you.

    It's BE, British English. In American English, we typically do not pluralize nouns used as adjectives. I've heard this sort of thing on the BBC World Report. This is not something we do in American English. I would always say "career guidance". English does not pluralize adjectives, generally speaking. Though we see nouns used as plural adjectives in BrE.

    If I listen enough, I might learn how to speak BrE ... ... No! Never!
