Career Counseling: Is it Worth it?
I've never really known what I wanted to do career-wise, so I just got a BBA degree and took an office job. Several years into my career, I'm not satisfied. I started off with low-pay, so I'm not where I want to be money-wise, either.
I've thought about going back to school for my MBA, but even if I do, would it make my career any more satisfying? I've also wondered about pursuing specialized education, but first I have to figure out what field. I've taken some online career tests, but those don't really help.
Now I'm toying with the idea of seeking a career counselor, not to tell me what to do, but to help me figure out based on skills/interests what I might want to pursue. Hopefully by them asking the rights questions, a light bulb will go off. And I also need help then to put together a concrete plan on how to reach my goal.
So my question is, has anyone here sought career counseling, and would you say it's worth it?
Thanks a lot.
