Our Clients Come First

Great careers don’t happen randomly.

We Help People Clarify Their Purpose…

We understand how difficult it can be to clarify one’s ‘purpose’, ‘calling’ or ‘mission’ in life. And yet, not developing this self-awareness is one of the primary reasons people struggle with job satisfaction and career indecision.

At Charles River Careers we partner with our clients and use an integrated approach to help them discover their potential. We work to crystallize an individual’s core interests, personality profile, preferred work style and more to develop a detailed self-portrait that guides career direction.

We call this process developing a career ‘vision’ or life design.

…and Map it into a Personalized Plan

Regardless of whether you are defining your career path, changing directions or just exploring options, we’ll work to map your vision into a detailed roadmap.

Along the way, we’ll help answer questions such as: what career paths best suit my interests, what environments best match my working style, what are the educational, training or volunteer experiences I should consider, and what is the progressive experience I need to gain to achieve my ideal job?

And although it may sound obvious, studies have shown that one of the strongest predictors of transition success is creating and implementing a focused plan. We’ll work with you to define both long range goals and the immediate next steps to get you headed in the right direction.
