Is Your Chesterfield Career Working?

When we were little kids, we all looked forward to a special day in school — Career Day! Our parents might come in and talk about their jobs, or maybe even a firefighter or a police officer would make an appearance and tell us what they did all day long.  We thought to ourselves, “Wow! I’m going to have an exciting job when I grow up, too!”

Then, we got a little older.  We went to college and before we knew it, we had a spouse and children, all who depend on us for everything they need, and so we settled into a job we don’t like just to pay the bills.  Or maybe we just keep bouncing from job to job hoping we land in one that we don’t hate.

Let’s be honest: this isn’t working. If you’re ready to make some career changes and the Chesterfield, VA area is your home, Thriveworks Chesterfield Career Counseling can help you make those changes today!
Being able to get paid for doing what I love — is that really possible for me?”

YES! We are thrilled that you asked and we’re excited to see the changes that will happen in your life as a result of our time together.  Your counselor will hold up a mirror to your life and ask you some questions.  Your honest answers to those questions and what you do with the knowledge you gain could change your entire life.
