Sometimes, even a high-paying job will no longer make you happy. While it does pay the bills and let you buy anything you want, finding no fulfilment in what you do can cause a lot of stress. This is why you’ll find yourself wanting to look for another job – one that will not only let you afford your lifestyle but also something that will give you a sense of fulfilment and pride in what you do.
Searching for another job or shifting careers isn’t a walk in the park. This is especially true if you’ve been doing a particular job for many years. This is where career coaching workshops come in handy. What these seminars can do is help you recognize your own value. Such workshops will help you determine the valuable skills you have that employers will find most useful. Coaching can also guide you in planning your career. It can give you a trajectory of your career path in the next five or ten years.
Below are five of the best agencies that offer career coaching workshops in Singapore to help you find a job that you can be passionate about.
