Job Change after 25 Years in Retail

I'm looking to make a job change after 25 years in my own retail business. I am uncertain about what I want to do and would like to meet with a career couselor to discuss some different options. Do you offer this type of service?

I certainly would recommmend that you work with a career counselor. You could contact: The Jewish Vocational Service at 216 West Jackson Blvd., Suite 700, Chicago, Illinois 60606, (312) 673-3400. The Skokie office of JVS is at 5150 W Golf Road, (847) 568-5150.

Finding a Career Counselor

How do I go about choosing a career counselor that has a proven track record in helping individuals change careers? I am really struggling with many questions such as: Who am I? What is my purpose in life? What are my passions, and how can I apply them to a new career? I've come to the conclusion that I can't make these decisions all on my own. I've tried reading books on career change, but at this point, I believe serious coaching and networking is the best way for me to proceed. Should I expect to pay for these services?

Former Trader

I have been a floor trader for the past 17 years, and have traded for a group as well as a sole-proprietor. With the advent of screen based trading systems, the trading floor has become virtually obsolete. I would like to speak to a Career Expert and explore any and all opportunities.

Sounds like you are in the "market" for some career counseling. It will be best for you to meet with someone in person. There are some excellent agencies and private practitioners in the area, it all depends on what type of services you generally feel more comfortable with.

Going From Journalism to Social Work

A friend of mine has been looking for a job change. He's been working as a sports writer for a local newspaper, but he's now interested in finding different work in media or journalism and/or a new career in the mental health-social work field. The questions are, How does one locate a career guidance counselor that is free that could assist him in discovering his possible career options related to these two areas of employment? Could they provide him access to resources? Could they assist him in locating actual job opportunities? It would be helpful if you could help me with my friend's questions and concerns.

Professional Career Change

I have worked as an auditor/accountant for the past 10 years and I currently work for one of the Big Four firms. Within the last two years I have decided that I have no desire to continue on this path, although I am not completely sure where I would like to end up. My interest right now lies in Human Resources as a compensation analyst. I have no compensation experience but I do have experience in analyzing data and critical thinking. What is the best way for me to break into this field? I realize that I would most likely have to take a pay cut also and I'm okay with that as long as I'm rewarded appropriately.
