Career Clarity

I need help but I’m not sure what to ask for.

Sometimes, you can’t even articulate what you need. You just know your career isn’t working for you, and you’d like some help to figure it out. If you wonder whether you need to make a change but have no idea what that might be, this is the place to start. Career clarity comes in all forms. You may need clarity on what career is the best fit for you. You may need to figure out if the problem is the field, the role, or the employer. Or you want to understand why you feel like you keep climbing the same hill over and over, without making any progress.

Are you looking for some career clarity?

• I’m ready for a change. What should it be?
• What else could I be doing with my skills?
• Why am I struggling so much in my career?
• I feel ready for more. How do I achieve it?

• Where do I want to land at the end of this reorganization?
• I’m done with this career, but not with working. What comes next?
• Do I want to start my own business?
• Things seem to be going well at work. Why am I so miserable?
