There is so much talk and debate; so many books, articles, podcasts, opinions and published “research” about work, jobs, callings, careers, mission, purpose, change, fit, “end game thinking,” and arriving vs. striving. And, how about this: Applied economics, with you as the most fundamental unit? How do you make sense out of all of this?
We can help. For more than thirty-one years, Career Planning Specialists has worked with a wide variety of individual clients from 12 to 72 years of age in order to address these issues, while optimizing the relationship between work and life. Our clients range from students and entry-level workers to skilled professionals, scientists, artists, corporate executives – and everything in between.
At Career Planning Specialists, we believe that success is a cumulative process of discovery and change management – ARRIVING, rather than just coping or perpetual striving and recovery. It’s about helping you to take care of your number one investment – YOU! And actually, this is about applied economics, with you successfully navigating and capitalizing on accelerating change.
At Career Planning Specialists, our philosophy is that your life is a business! It’s about empowerment, ownership, planning and acting. Your work is a synergistic means to an end – and as such, you want to maximize the return on your time. Again, you are your own best investment. Regardless of your circumstances, we can help you develop a relevant plan and a real focus in order to execute a cumulative strategy that will work for you.
Our services include career assessment, advising, exploration, mapping and selection; understanding and using labor market information; college and vocational training selection; job search strategies that work; resume writing; preparing for interviews; parent, student, employee, executive and success coaching; and outplacement assistance.
Our approach is data driven, cost effective, convenient and completely confidential. We are members of the Plymouth, Canton and Livonia Michigan Chambers of Commerce; The Association of Public Data Users; and The Council for Community and Economic Research.
Day, evening and weekend in-person, telephone or video appointments can be arranged to fit your circumstances and schedule.
