11/19/2006: "a different kind of counselling now?"
I'm now on the lookout for a new counsellor. Or maybe that's not the right word - analyst? In any case, in conversation with my mom, she's offered to pay for counselling for me. Of course, now that it's obvious that I don't need a mental health counsellor, I'm focusing my attention on someone that can shed some light on my career; past, present, and future. A forensic career analyst? No, that implies post-humous action. Career analyst, I suppose.
In any case, that's who I'm looking for now. I have an e-mail in to my favourite career advisor (well, she's the only one I've ever had, but she's REALLY good) to get a referral from her. What I'm looking for is someone that can tell me how an employer looks at my resume, how I can change it to address any issues (or mask them entirely), and get an impartial 3rd-party opinion on all the various career change/transition options that I'm currently looking at.
Assuming such a person exists, it will be a very helpful counselling session indeed.
