New York, New York (PRWEB) May 25, 2006 –-
Ask anyone how they like their job and chances are one out of two people will be unhappy. Until now, most of these people would have to turn to local career counselors, college career offices, or networking groups to help them figure out how to find fulfilling work and make a big career change. These are no longer the only options. As the workday gets longer—leaving employees with little time for social gatherings let alone professional meetings or time to even think about a new career—career advisors are making their resources available by telephone. Employees can now be anywhere as long as it’s near a phone line or in a place with good cell reception and have access to the help they need.
“Finding a new job may feel like a full-time job, but finding a new career ends up feeling like climbing an insurmountable mountain for most people,” says Annemarie Segaric of Segaric Coaching, Inc., a Life & Career Transition company based in Manhattan. According to Segaric, author of the career change booklet, “107 Tips for Changing Careers While Still Paying the Bills” (ISBN 0-9759107-0-1), most would-be career changers overwhelm themselves in just thinking about their many options and in wondering if they could swing it financially. This often leads them to stay and put up with the current job that’s not making them very happy or they make a move to another job but in the same field. That change provides a boost of energy but according to Segaric, “These individuals find they quickly become restless after a short period of time since they haven’t addressed their true dissatisfactions. They have only changed what their surroundings look like.”
Segaric encourages her clients to not go through a career change alone but knows that very few have the time to invest in attending networking groups or in-person counseling sessions. She offers them an alternative. Every first Monday of the month, Segaric leads a free telephone seminar, “How to Figure Out What You Want When Changing Careers”, and has had attendees signing up from all over the country. If these career changers feel they need more one-on-one support, Segaric is available for individual coaching that also takes place over the phone. As she pointed out, “What’s great is that people who might not normally have access to career support get to call in and hear how other people are handling their career change while also receiving practical tips they can implement immediately. And for those whose schedule is hectic, they find it much easier to fit in a telephone call either in between meetings, at lunch time or after the kids are in bed.”
The next free telephone seminar takes place June 5th at 8:30pm EST. Visit http://www.segaric.com for more information.
