Athens Career Counseling

Meet with a local Thriveworks provider -- we accept insurance & provide personalized, high-quality care.


Choosing a career path used to be a simple process years ago. Young people would pick their chosen vocation, find a job after school, and then stick with it for life. Back in the day, folks would often work for the same company till they retired. Aside from Japan, there aren’t too many “job’s for life” options out there anymore.

Deciding on a new career or a change in profession half way through your life can be a painful process for anyone who is ill-prepared. It makes perfect sense for anyone struggling in the job market to reach out and seek professional help. A good career counseling service can often guide people and help them move forward with new confidence.

Overcoming Obstacles

The biggest obstacle with finding a new career is uncertainty, and that can manifest in three ways:

  • The individual has no idea what it is they want to do
  • Unsure what they’re qualified to apply for exactly
  • The inevitable drop in self-esteem because of the two points above

Joblessness or job indecision can hinder a person to the point of paralysis. The longer this uncertainty goes on for the more challenging the ordeal becomes.

Vocational Counseling Works

Vocational counseling has assisted many people in overcoming their self-doubts and challenges. What it does is give people the tools to restart their lives and begin on a new and more optimistic path. It can help the indecisive one become more decisive and more proactive. Often, all anyone needs is a little steering in the right direction. Career guidance is usually able to do just that.

Any effective plan has to be set out in two ways:

  • A well-defined main goal
  • A blueprint for getting there
