  • Talking to a friend over the weekend, I found myself saying that it's almost easier to plan a career change when you're already working at a job/in a career that you can tolerate.  I think the thought struck me because it flies in the face of the common practice of "taking the leap", "cutting the cord", or any other number of metaphors for leaving your current job so you can focus on your next step. Now before going any further its important to say that this approach can work for some people. In fact, there are probably some individuals for whom the only way to make a drastic change is to take drastic action. But my guess is that this

  • It's usually an accumulation of small comments that tips you off.  Perhaps during your weekly/monthly/yearly phone call with your daughter you start to hear a common sentiment:  "It felt like a great job at first but now I'm not sure...," or "I'm as bored at this job as I was at the last one. I still don't know what to do with my life...," or even "I had another talk with my supervisor."    You're a parent.  You know your child. And you can see the problem coming. No matter how it's said, the point is the same: your kid needs a different career. But is there anything that you can (or should) do? Fair question. You're a parent.  You

  • The process problem. In the last post, I made the case that leaving your current job/career to create some space to consider your next career was stacking the deck against you.  I'll be the first to agree that this can work for some people. But, in my experience the pressure that comes with this sort of move makes it more difficult to make a sound career decision.  So where does this leave us? How do we move forward with career change while still holding down our regular job? So where does this leave us? How do we move forward with career change while still holding down our regular job?

  • We all experience stress at work (if you don't, figure out why and tell the rest of us). This stress could come from a variety of sources, but the result is often the same. You start to wonder if you are in the right place, if all hours you are investing in this career are worth it.  This is a common reason that people might initially consider career consultation.  But before we dive headlong into a entire career shift, it can be worthwhile to consider whether these problems come from a poor career fit or poor fit to a specific position. We all experience stress at work (if you don't, please figure out why and then tell the rest of

  • I haven't always been a public transit commuter; for years I drove my 25-35 minute highway commute (rain or shine, bright or dark).  But a recent move has meant that I'm a light rail commuter now, and today that had me thinking about how much factors like your commute matter, but how hard they are to assess in the standard career consultation process. Career Consultation is focused on helping people by increasing knowledge of the world of work, increasing self-insight, and using these sources of information to facilitate the career decision process. But, beyond these topics, there remains a whole category of factors that can drastically affect the quality of your career life. Career Consultation is focused on helping people by increasing knowledge of
