Career Direction

Become clear on what is a fulfilling career for YOU and develop a plan on how to get there.

If you do not know where you are going, you will never get there. The essence of career direction lies in the answer to the question: “Now what?”

  • A banker lost his job and never liked it to begin with… Now What?
  • A doctor took time to raise her kids, now an empty nester and ready to jump back in, but her values about the demands of the medical profession have changed … Now What?

When people come upon a turning point in their life and are unclear about which path to take, the words “Now what?” can create an overwhelming feeling. Arjan sees the question “Now what?” as an exciting one and the impetus to explore what motivates you, and makes you the happiest and most fulfilled in your work.

For your work to be satisfying, it must be compatible with your core values and interests. Why are some people so passionate about their work and others consider it a drag? What makes one person feel fulfilled as an investment banker, another as an actress or a third as an entrepreneur? It is because each person is different.

Determining a career direction is a very individualized process. Working with Arjan on career direction is a period of discovery and breaking down barriers. It starts with assessing who you truly are and what makes you “tick.” This in combination with creating an understanding of the workplace will lead to clarity about the career direction you want to take. Clarity inspires people to take action and move forward.

Arjan’s insightful questions, valuable career tools, techniques and assessments will allow you to illuminate your values, interests and strengths, and balance priorities to discover a career path that is right for you.

The Process –The length of the engagement depends on the scope of the work. You will be surprised at the amount of progress that can be made in just a few weeks. Arjan is certified in multiple forms of assessment including the Strong Assessment, one of the most widely respected career assessments in the world for gaining broader insight into an individual’s interests, values, and work style.
