Sometimes you might just need an independent unbiased person to talk to. Talking can lead to personal discovery; like understanding what your preferences are and where and with whom you want to work. It’s not only your skills, knowledge and experience that need to be considered when you are searching for work. Think about what you are interested in, the environment you want to work in, the values and motivations that are important to you too. All are important if you want to enjoy and be fulfilled at work.
A professional career consultant has resources, expertise and knowledge that can help you get back on track and make sure that whatever gear you are in, the career change is as smooth as possible.
