Jeff Neil, Career Counseling NYC clients

If you want to discover your best job and career options in 2 coaching sessions, you're in the right place.

Here's the proven, practical, and results-oriented career coaching process I use to help my career clients identify exciting new job and career paths that fit them in two career counseling and coaching sessions:

  • Clients complete a proprietary assessment before we meet, which ensures our work together is focused and productive.
  • During our 1st career counseling session, I will take the time to get to know you. I will delve into your skills, abilities, experience, current situation, and preferences, gaining a comprehensive understanding of who you are and your potential.
  • After our session, I'll conduct comprehensive job & career idea research on your behalf (most career counselors don't do this work for clients - instead, they have clients do the research themselves).
  • In our 2nd career coaching session, I'll tell you about the specific job options and career paths that best fit you.
  • Following our 2nd session, I'll send a comprehensive package containing Summary Profiles for each job idea we discuss (click here to see a sample profile). Additionally, I will provide you with proprietary resources that will help you evaluate and assess each job idea effectively, so you can choose the best one for you.

More than 95% of my career counseling clients know what types of jobs and careers they want to target after just two coaching sessions.

If discovering the best job and career path for you is worth a $380 investment in yourself, I invite you to schedule a 10-minute complimentary consultation.

This will enable me to confirm that I possess the necessary expertise and knowledge to assist you. It also provides you with the opportunity to have your questions answered and determine if my services meet your needs.

You truly have nothing to lose and potentially everything to gain by scheduling a complimentary consultation to discuss your situation.

Why People Hire Me (In Their Words)

"I'm lost in my career path and don't know what to do next. Having trouble breaking into anything else."

"I am not happy in my current job. I don't feel fulfilled, and I feel like I have so much more potential than what I'm doing in my current job."

"For the past few years, I've felt stuck within my position. It has been extremely frustrating and stressful. I am very ready to take on a new role."

"My current work isn't the right fit for me. I am currently at a crossroads as to where to turn next. I know my general strengths and weaknesses but don’t know how to translate those into an appropriate and fulfilling career choice."

"Being unsatisfied with work has caused me to neglect my physical health, have panic attacks (and nightmares), and has taken a toll on my home life and relationships."

"This is my third job in 7 years where I've grown so unhappy that it's at the point of affecting not just my performance, but also my health."

"I feel like I've been settling for mediocracy and there must be something else out there I could be doing that will be more fulfilling and better aligned with my skills, values, and interests."

"I have no idea what I want to do. It seems like everyone I am competing against for jobs has more experience than me and would be the preferred candidate."

"I've figured for some time that I have wanted to go down a different career path, but have never been able to focus on one goal, or indeed how to make the first step. I feel it's now time to try my best to focus."

If you can relate to any of those, you can schedule a complimentary, no-pressure consultation to discuss your situation and my services to see if I can support your career success too.

What Causes Career Regret?

Regret is a powerful emotion that many of us feel at different times in life.

One common cause of regret for many people is their career. Sometimes, regret from our work and career decisions can have a large and lasting impact on our sense of fulfillment and happiness.

Here are a few common causes of career regret:

Unfulfilled Aspirations: One common source of career regret is the feeling of unfulfilled aspirations. People may regret not pursuing their passions or dreams, opting for a safer or more practical career path instead. This can lead to a persistent sense of longing and a belief that they missed out on something significant.

Missed Opportunities: Regret can also arise from missed opportunities or decisions that led to missed chances for advancement or growth. Individuals might look back and wish they had taken that promotion, switched companies, or pursued further education when they had the chance.

Burnout and Stress: Many people experience career regret due to the negative impact their jobs have had on their physical and mental health. A demanding and stressful job can lead to regret about prioritizing career success over well-being.

Work-Life Balance: Balancing work and personal life is a common struggle. Individuals who regret not spending more time with their families or pursuing personal interests due to career demands may experience a sense of lost time and missed moments.

Financial Choices: Financial decisions tied to one's career, such as taking on excessive debt or failing to save adequately for the future, can also lead to deep regret. People may lament the financial stress and insecurity that their career choices have brought about.

Lack of Purpose: A profound source of career regret is a sense of lacking purpose or meaning in one's work. Feeling that their career doesn't align with their values or contribute meaningfully to society can leave individuals with a nagging sense of emptiness.

Comparison with Others: Social comparison can amplify feelings of career regret. When people see others achieving success or happiness in their careers, it can intensify their own feelings of regret.

While regret can be painful, it can also be a catalyst for learning, growth, and making more informed career choices.

Five Strategies to Identify Your Ideal Job & Career and Make Your Career Change

Are you inspired to make a career change

Strategy 1: Be Genuinely Inspired & Engaged At Work

Over time, being in the wrong job crushes your soul. 

That's just one reason people in the wrong work feel like they have to "push" themselves to succeed at work.

Pushing works well for some people... usually for a limited period of time.

But when we keep running into a big obstacle at work - or a series of small ones - it takes a LOT of pushing to get past them. After a while, that becomes exhausting.

That's why pushing ourselves in the wrong type of job is typically a recipe for frustration and unhappiness.

Wouldn't it be easier - and better - if we feel pulled forward effortlessly to our success at work?

There are natural pulls in your life - things that genuinely inspire you, increase your energy, and empower you to be your best.

When you make a career transition to a job and career path that aligns with the natural pulls in your life... you'll create a "vacuum effect" that pulls you forward in your career effortlessly.

And you'll have much more satisfaction and motivation at work, and in your personal life too. You'll be more creative. You'll feel more fulfilled. And you'll be more successful.

In our career counseling work together, I'll help you identify new job and career ideas that will pull you forward.

Be True to Yourself Career Coaching Advice

Strategy 2: Put Your Personal Strengths and Innate Talents to Work in Your Career

As a career coach and career counselor based in Manhattan with nearly two decades of experience coaching professionals in NYC to make successful career changes and transitions...

I've seen many talented people fall into the trap of NOT recognizing or valuing their strengths and abilities.

I know everyone has a unique combination of skills, talents and interests... and that is what makes each one of us special. 

When you know what they are and you align them with your work, you'll thrive. You'll be valued and respected by your colleagues. And you'll be set to achieve your potential.

If you're not clear on what your best transferrable skills and experience are, no worries - I'll help you identify them in our work together.

Inspirational message for career counseling clients

Strategy 3: Discover Alternative Job & Career Options That Are A Great Fit For You (Including Ideas You Didn't Know Existed)

The GOOD and BAD news is that the work world is incredibly diverse... and most people wanting to change careers have no clue how to identify the best job and career options for them.

It frustrates me when I see smart people trying to figure out their best work options by reading online articles and career books, taking computerized assessments and even talking with well-meaning friends & family...

... because I know most job recommendations they will get from people, books and assessments are based on the job they are doing now (which is exactly what they want to get away from).

If you want to discover NEW and DIFFERENT career options, it's likely you have to use a different approach to figure out your best possibilities.

The problem is, we don't know what we don't know. That's where I come in.

With nearly two decades of career coaching and counseling experience, I have an exceptional and unique knowledge of the work world. In our work together, I'll make sure you learn what jobs and careers best fit you.

Strategy 4: Have The Right Tools And A Smart Job Search Action Plan to Land Your New Job

Without the right resume, LinkedIn profile and job search action plan, many job seekers making career transitions drift like a rudderless ship and never reach their new destination.

An effective resume and LinkedIn profile effectively show potential employers that you can be successful in the new type of job and career you want... even though you've never had that type of position or worked in that industry. (Click here to see some of the industries I serve.)

And a smart 'Job Search Action Plan' guides you step-by-step to get from where you are now to transition to your new career faster.

Many people making career changes have resumes that force employers to figure out how the job seeker could be successful in a new role. That just doesn't work... employers won't take the time to figure it out.

Instead, once you know the best job and career options for you, it's important to develop a resume that translates your experience and puts your best foot forward.. so potential employers will be excited to talk to you. 

With the right resume and job search strategies, making a career pivot is easier than most people realize.

In our work together, I can help you develop a winning resume, cover letter, LinkedIn profile, and Job Search action to support your success.

The Fifth Surefire Strategy to Discover Your Best Job & Career Options & Make a Smart Career Change

Another thing I've learned as a career coach and counselor helping thousands of professionals in and out of NYC and other metropolitan areas...

If all it took to identify the right career and make a career transition are a few assessments, online articles and sample resumes...

... then nearly everyone would know and have their ideal type of job already.

For most people, it doesn't work that way.

Strategy 5: Have a Qualified Ally and Guide to Support Your Career Change Success

All of us need experienced guides and expert advice from time to time to help us grow and move forward faster in life.  

Sure, we might be able to figure it out ourselves EVENTUALLY, but at what cost? How much time do we waste? How much frustration and stress could we avoid?

To identify the best job and career for you and make your transition, use a qualified partner who can:

  • Identify your best skills and abilities that can be transferred to new jobs and careers... so you don't have to 'start over' or take a big pay cut
  • Point out the best job and career options for you... including ones you never considered or knew existed
  • Help you create a powerful and persuasive resume, LinkedIn profile and cover letter that gets employers to call you
  • Teach you the best and research-proven job search strategies to get more interviews faster... even though you do not have all of the required skills, experience or education
  • Create a credible explanation to reduce or eliminate any 'gaps' you have... so you can beat out better-qualified candidates
  • Share critical interview strategies... so you stand out and get more job offers for more money
  • Keep you focused, confident and moving forward steadily so you can make your career transition faster

If you can imagine how this advice and expertise could support you...

Here's one way you can have an expert ally on your side to help you have a career breakthrough...

See For Yourself How My Career Coaching & Career Counseling Will Help You Make Your Career Transition

I've spent 18 years taking every aspect of what has worked for my clients and I've created a one-of-a-kind career counseling program...

... that quickly helps you to discover alternative job and career options for you... so you can make your best career transition.
