Are you in career transition or hope to be soon? Recent media reports say that as this recession eases, thousands of people who are unhappy with their careers and/or jobs will be looking.
If you are one of the above, you may decide not to go it alone, but instead to reach out to a career coach/counselor for personalized help, and personalized it should be. Career transition services should not be "one size fits all". Unfortunately, this is how it seems to many clients who are introduced to a very non-personalized process of assessments and inventories all designed for at least quick, and hopefully easy answers.
Would you rather just talk? Would you prefer to discuss your situation with your coach/counselor as well as work through the rest of the process? If you would, you are not alone. Make sure when selecting your coach/counselor, you find someone who will allow you the time to talk and to reflect. Your future depends on it.
