Gonyea Guide for Career Decision-Making & Planning...

Are you confused as to which career direction you should pursue and unsure as to whether you should work with a career counselor?


If so, then my FREE Gonyea Guide for Career Decision-Making & Planning may be ideal for you!  It's a self-directed guide for selecting a career goal and developing a career plan.


Here's a little background information about the Guide...


Decades of research and experience has convinced me that the key to selecting a rewarding career direction is to first identify the factors (aka career selection criteria) that make up your ideal career. For example, what are your:


  • Main interests (passions)?
  • Strongest skills?
  • Most important values and needs?
  • Most descriptive personality traits?
  • Most desirable career and work preferences?


In short, who are you?


Without knowing this information about yourself selecting a career direction is pure guess work and guessing often leads to the wrong selection.  My 22 page guide will walk you through the process of:


  • Identifying your criteria (interests, skills, etc.)
  • Identifying possible matching occupations
  • Researching occupations to discover their true nature
  • Identifying the top (prime) career candidates
  • Narrowing your prime candidates down to a specific career goal to discover the occupation that best matches your career criteria
  • Developing a step-by-step career plan for moving ahead


The Guide is ideal for college students attempting to select their first career direction, as well as adults attempting to make a mid-life career change.

If the Guide does not meet your needs, please consider scheduling a session to discuss your career needs.  See the Online Personal Counseling page for directions regarding how to schedule a session.


Good luck with your career planning!
