Do you have a hard time getting out of bed to go to work? Are you feeling down about your job hunt? You go to your interview with a pounding heart and sweaty palms. You are so nervous when you interview to the point that you panic. Sometimes all you can manage is a part-time job, but it is not enough to make bills. You have a tough time finding job listings that match your skills. When the phone doesn't ring, you wonder, "What's wrong with me?" Those old messages from your teachers and friends creep into your mind. You wonder if they are true. But you DO have a lot to offer in spite of what others have told you. Accessible Career and you can work together to create a path forward at your own pace.

You wonder what will happen to your son or daughter with Asperger's after you're gone. You think if they could just get a degree, they can get a job. If your adult student isn't headed to college, you're concerned about what's out there for them. You may ask, "How do I help them to live independently?" Believe it or not, there are several ways.

Then you smile because the salary offered was more than you requested! You realize you have choices. And you feel powerful.

You don't want someone to tell you what to do. You've had enough of the Debby Downer's telling you what's wrong with your ideas. You'd rather have support while you're making a move you worry is risky. Someone who sees the tremendous upside in your next move. Talking to someone about your dreams and goals can help sort things out. Let's remove obstacles, make a plan, and track your progress. If you are ready to:
Accessible Career and you can meet with a secure telehealth platform that can help you with workplace issues and improving your career options. You and your counselor will take a look at your education, work history, and values. If you and your counselor determine that is will be helpful, you can also use career assessments to provide more information on your career interests. When you both narrow your options and choose one, you will create a plan with next steps including future education, internships, part-time work, and/or starting a business of your own. You can meet periodically with Accessible Career to stay on track and transition into your career.
