Are Career or Education Decisions Leaving You Feeling Stuck? 

Big life transitions like graduations, major changes, or career switches are tougher seasons in life. Plus, when you lack an adequate understanding of how to use your unique aptitudes, interests, and values to move through these seasons, you may find that…

  • Unfinished applications loom over you
  • Your personal statements/resumé feel lackluster.
  • It feels like you’re going to make a wrong decision about your major.
  • You have doubts about your school or job choices.
  • Everyone keeps giving you conflicting, crazy-making pieces of advice. 

When these symptoms crop up, it may be time to consider working with a career counselor who can coach you through it.

Who We Serve

High school

Whether going on to college or into the workforce, students in this stage of life face a crucial decision making process.

For those students going to college, making the wrong decisions here means you can end up switching your major multiple times, racking up extra debt, and graduating late with a degree you won’t use.

For students heading to the workforce from high school, getting started is tough. You may not have enough experience to know which types of jobs will work best for you.

Either way, career counseling and aptitude testing can give you hard data to help you make wise decisions about your future.

In fact, when students use frameworks like our own, they are more likely to end up in careers where they succeed.


College students impact their livelihood when they decide their major. Unfortunatley, making this decision without a proven decision-making framework can lead to…

  • Switching majors multiple times
  • Ending up in a career that doesn’t fit
  • Taking on extra debt
  • Feeling lost and confused
  • An inability to find internships and jobs

If you find yourself drifting while in college, an evidence-based framework for career decision making can help you identify the best careers for you. Then, counselors can help you build roadmaps to get you into those careers with the least resistance possible.

Job Changers

Sometimes you need change in your career. These times in a professional’s life can occur for various reason but commonly lead to things like…

  • Burnout
  • A sense that you are in the wrong job
  • Conflicts at work
  • A persistent feeling of dread around work

While it can be tempting to jump ship, switching careers is no small feat. Taking the time to understand your strengths, your values, your interests, and your history can help you avoid recreating the same mess you want to leave. Using our decision making framework and coaching, you can lay the foundation of a new, invigorating, and satisfying work life.
