Making a career choice can be a somewhat agonizing decision because there are many factors that come into play. When you spend over half of your waking hours at work, you want to make sure that you make the right choice.
Jobs change much more rapidly and the “jobs of tomorrow” are not even around yet today, so it is important to start looking at your career more as a journey and focus on your skills and strengths that can translate to different opportunities.
This means that you can make an informed choice about what realm you want to work in, determine the skills and strengths you gravitate toward, and carve out a path that gets you in a career that excites you… at least for now. In ten or twenty years, you might want to grow in a new direction and flex a different type of intellectual muscle.
Typically for our clients, this package saves hours, days, weeks, and months of time agonizing over a career choice by working with aligning strengths and talents with interests and drives, combined with market research to help sift out the right career based on an informed choice.
Here is how Career5 works with clients to help make new career choices:
(for new career goers, transitioners, or encore careers )
1) Take our YouScience® Assessment.
Let’s get you on the right track, learn your skills, cognitive abilities, and the careers that are a good fit.
2) Determine your key strengths, interests, leadership traits you gravitate toward, and what is meaningful to you, as well as align your life and career goals.
By discovering more of who you are, we can more accurately sift out and align what you want out of your career.
3) Research, research, research what careers are important to you.
Through the internet, LinkedIn, job boards, and speaking with others, we can sift down careers you are leaning toward.
4) Conduct an ROI (return on investment) of a career choice based on costs.
Costs matter when making a career choice, and it is best to make an informed choice by weighing a 10-yr projected income of your career choice.
5) Conduct an ROI of a career choice based on happiness.
Money isn’t everything, and sometimes sanity and an inner calling in an area where you need to grow-may be more important.
6) Make a career choice and strategize your path.
Sift through the best career choice with your coach and strategize your path of how you will get there.
Coaching helps you sift through what you REALLY want out of your career.
By working with a coach, you can really deep dive into what you want to carve out of your career. The world is a different place now. You will not be at the same job for decades, and if your career is a journey, with a little clarity, forethought, intention, you can make it spectacular!

” It was a difficult decision to transfer over to a new career field, but my graduate degree was almost finished, I knew I could transfer some of my old skills to my new field, but I just needed the extra coaching support, job market intel, and a clear strategy that Career5 provided for me.”
