Career Psychics and Coaches More Helpful Than Friends?

There are times when we know that change is the answer but have no idea what type of change is needed. Careers may turn sharp corners at any point during our working lives and any big decision should be thought through completely.

We look to friends, boyfriends, parents, siblings, mentors, and career psychics to help us sort through the pros and cons. Wait, back up! Career psychics? Find out more about the roles played by various career counselors when you


The New York Times explains some subtle differences: "Career counselors tend to explore psychological undercurrents with clients, and they often have a master’s degree in counseling. Coaches typically come from the corporate world and focus on goal-setting." Those who focus on counseling may translate their psychic or intuitive skills to help their clients "see their dream job."

Career counseling and coaching in general can help uncertain workers achieve a finer focus on their true goals and gifts, and they charge up to $400 per hour for their services. They've indicated that more new graduates are seeking out their help because of their mounting concern for finding work in a weak economy along with student loans hanging over their heads.

Would you consider career counseling, or do you think you'd have just as much success reading books with their recommendations? Is your own judgment along with the advice of those you trust enough when you're mulling over a big transition?

I would never spend hundreds on a career psychic. Actually I wouldn't spend any money.

i never thought i'd consider seeing a coach until i met mine last year on a trip in japan. she's been very helpful and resourceful especially when i've been struggling to find something that works for me on a professional and personal level. (i agree with jettagirl3!) i understand that money is a factor but when it's about figuring yourself out and finding what it is you want...depending on if youve found a counselor or coach you can trust, it's worthwhile. you end up on a path of self discovery...

I've been struggling trying to find the right career path. I'm going to go see on soon. A lot of them charge on a sliding scale depending on your salary. So it not so expensive.

Ummm, I'd never pay $400 for this hocus pocus. I can make my own decisions, with a little bit of input from people who actually know me - and that I can trust - to help with this.
