Career Counselor Advice
A little over a year ago I changed jobs. The new job is still within my industry and while there are many benefits, including a much shorter commute and an environment that isn't toxic, it feels like a definite step backwards in my career. This has been very hard for me. I want to leave the job, though I'm trapped given that the shorter commute has been beneficial to my family, including my two kids. As a result, I've been depressed and anxious, with a notable drop in self-esteem. I've been thinking about seeking the advice of a career counselor because I really want to make sure that the next move is the right one for me - a better fit culturally and one in which I find more job satisfaction. I'm wondering if anyone has had any positive experiences with career counselors - have they helped you see clarity when you've felt lost and in a fog? Have they helped you reposition yourself when you're clearly on the wrong track? Or maybe a psychologist is the better bet for me? I'd love to hear about your experience and any guidance and recommendations that you can provide! Many thanks.
