But, according to a Gallup poll, two-thirds of American employees are not engaged at work. Countless individuals are unhappy or unsatisfied in their careers, but feel pressures – both internal and external – to remain in their current positions.
Perhaps you wake up dreading your work, but aren’t sure what steps to take to feel more satisfied and fulfilled in your career.
You may feel mired down in workplace depression, to the point that it is limiting your ability to see and take the first step toward pursuing a more satisfying profession. At Dynamic Transitions, we emphasize a compassionate, supportive environment to help you take actionable steps toward a more fulfilling career.
If you aren’t sure where to begin, we offer career tests and initial assignments to help us pinpoint possible career options. We use proven techniques to take quick, effective strides toward your career goals. Unlike traditional talk therapy, you don’t have to wait and hope we discover your ideal career over time. Rather, you can gain clarity and hope immediately as you feel like your professional goals are understood.
While it is exciting to think about how much better you will feel in your new position, getting there takes work, dedication, focus and a willingness to come out of your shell. But, when you are committed, you can take an active role in shaping and developing your own, long-term solutions.
Our goal is to help you develop a variety of career-related strategies and skills you can apply to different fields and throughout your professional life, both here in New York and wherever your career takes you. Part of feeling satisfied in your career is understanding yourself, your professional goals and the career strategies you need to reach those goals. We can simplify the process of changing careers by helping you recognize your strengths, the obstacles that have stood in your way in the past and the steps you need to take to move forward in your career.
You may feel an initial fear, sadness or disappointment as you contemplate or take steps toward changing careers. We understand there is a loss or change that you need to deal with. But, at the same time, we are happy and excited for you and the opportunity you have. It takes courage to reach out and say that you want to make a change. We like to think we’re holding onto hope for you, encouraging you and supporting you until you are ready to embrace your situation.
In our extensive experience we have learned that, if you’re motivated enough, you will find a way to reach your goals. It is never too late. Feeling unhappy in your career is often an indicator that it’s time to make a change. We can help you approach your career change strategically and efficiently to reach success.
A truly effective career assessment requires more than one test. Many readily available tests – including those online – are not necessarily useful. At Dynamic Transitions, we employ a comprehensive battery of tests and interviews to understand your personal and professional skills and goals. We can help you find solutions that satisfy who you are as a whole person, rather than just matching your skills with professions.
A career change isn’t a panacea. The idea that if you love your job you’ll never work a day in your life is not true. Even if you love your job or career, there will always be parts that you don’t like and processes you don’t believe are necessary. A great job isn’t a cure-all, but finding a career and job that’s a better fit for you is a vital first step to feel happier and more satisfied in your work and in your life.
