Career Choice was created to provide affordable, practical, and personalized counseling to individuals and organizations in the process of dealing with the unique challenges of job searching and employment transition. Career Choice aims to provide individualized career counseling services to clients that supports and challenges them to achieve their educational, career, and personal goals. We are about helping you find a career that will reward your efforts and ultimately assist you in reaching your goals, both personal and vocational. Whether you are interested in furthering your education, changing careers, or reentering the workforce, Career Choice can help you.

Career Choice uses a variety of methods in achieving results. Career assessments, individual assignments to increase your personal level of self-awareness, identification of skills and assessment of personal strengths and personality traits, will be included in the process. The counseling process will help you to develop and implement a vision and create goals for your life.

Career Choice offers assistance in a variety of areas including:
  • Career Counseling
  • Career Planning & Decision-Making
  • Career Transition & Return to Work Issues
  • Effective Job Search & Interviewing Strategies
  • Developing An Effective Resume & Cover Letter
  • Creating A Healthy Life Balance

Making a career choice requires getting in touch with our selves and our surroundings. Tapping into our intuition and really listening to our hearts will help us to better assess our life and create a vision of what we want to accomplish in the world. The most important decisions we make often occur while we are relaxing on a beach, enjoying a calm weekend with loved ones, taking in the beauty of nature, or in the peaceful hours of our day. Living a life of balance requires determination and persistence to really make it happen. It also requires letting go and enjoying what we have already accomplished.
