Career Counseling – Therapists, Coaches, and Counselors in Westminster
The world of work is much larger, with many more choices, than we could have ever imagined when we were young. While in grade school, children are often administered a test, the results of which are supposed to tell them what careers they have aptitude and interest in. Unfortunately, there are a couple of problems with that test. First, they are often administered while the children are still children, as opposed to when they are young adults considering college. By the time they are old enough to begin making serious choices about the direction of their lives, they’ve either disregarded or completely forgotten the results of their aptitude test.
Many adults find themselves realizing mid-career that their job isn’t fulfilling. And fulfillment doesn’t just come from financial reward, though that is part of it. Fulfillment means when you go to work each day you’re excited about how your job utilizes your unique strengths and makes a difference for the end-user of your product, idea, or service. Some folks accept that going to an unfulfilling job every day is “just part of being an adult,” but it doesn’t have to be.
