One important aspect of the role is to keep up-to-date with current information in relation to education and careers. You also need to have excellent communication and interpersonal skills as you are dealing with a wide variety of people on a day to day basis. Having empathy and understanding for people is very important and always be willing to be self reflective. To be inquisitive and always asking questions of yourself and others is also important.
