Would You Consider Visiting a Career Coach?

Sometimes it takes a little outside help to clearly see the big picture and discover our strengths and true passions, and that might mean seeking the sound advice of a professional.

Career counselors would surely offer a better assessment of the types of jobs that would be most suitable for you than, say, a color test. Would you consider visiting one if you had the funds to do so?

Well I've already chosen my dream job and am working towards it but I know some less than so guided people (my friends) who really have no idea what they're going to do so this is something I'll definetly try to recommend to them!

I have been working with someone for years and it has been absolutely priceless. Actually no, I CAN put a price on it: $75 an hour visit, 4 times over the past 3 years and $6,000 in compensation increases at a new job I love. It pays for itself. Not to mention I am happier and more focused. Even if you love what you do and don't see yourself making a big change - they can help you look at the big picture. I plan on working for another 40 years and now I have a plan instead of being frustrated about my current position. Sometimes you just need an independent view of things. That being said - find yourself a counselor who is smarter than you, who you respect, and who has connections.

i'm not opposed to it but i think that for right now - i enjoy the concept of my job so i'm ok with what i do. the thing that may come along is when i get older - i'm not sure if i'll want to change careers once i have a family
