New free service offers guidance in choosing a new career
College advisory service surprised to see so many asking for career advice.
Too many people are unhappy with their career choice. But it’s never too late to change.
When University Research & Review introduced its unique online personal advisory service last fall they expected all their site visitors would want guidance in selecting degree programs and colleges and universities. To their surprise, more than a quarter of their site visitors were more interested in learning if they were in the right career.
Recent surveys by various organizations indicate that less than half of the people employed are happy with their jobs and as many as fifty percent say they will look for better job prospects in the near future. Other research shows that less than thirty percent of college graduates are working in the field in which they majored.
“What’s wrong with this picture?” asked University Research & Review’s founder Joseph Schmoke. “It didn’t hit home to me until we began seeing requests for adults about career change rather than about which college might be best for them. Since we already used a proven psychological test to determine a person’s personality profile we decided to apply our process on behalf of those wondering if they should change careers,” Schmoke stated.
When asked what spurred the career changers to come to his company’s college advisory site Schmoke said it must have been prompted by interview he did on local TV news programs in ten cities. “When you’re interviewed by TV news reporters you never know what they’re going to ask or what theme they’re targeting,” Schmoke commented. “Some of the reporters were more interested in following the theme of recent media coverage about people believing they were in the wrong career, so I just answered their questions,” he said.
While University Research & Review continues to provide advice and guidance to those considering enrolling in college, the company is also offering its free services to those thinking about switching careers. Schmoke says since the system is in place and it works well why not make it available to people who are wondering if they’re wasting time in the wrong career.
