Careers and Goals
From a young age, we are asked “What do you want to be when you grow up?” It’s a question that has a huge impact on your life, and for most of us it’s not a simple one to answer. Not knowing what the future will be like for you can be exciting, but it can also be daunting and unnerving. Maybe you’re just starting out and really have no idea which path to take. Maybe your job is “not bad” but not what you had imagined and hoped for. Maybe you thought you had it all figured out but now when you look at the plan you made it’s more depressing than exhilarating. Don’t worry, that’s normal and you’re in the right place. Increasingly, people are switching careers several times over their lifespans, so career planning has become a process we go through not more than once as our interests and priorities change. A career counsellor can help you to identify the careers that would be the best fit for your passions, abilities, and goals, so that you can love going to work in the morning, feel confident in what you’re doing, be fulfilled, and have the income you need for your preferred lifestyle.
