Job Change after 25 Years in Retail

I'm looking to make a job change after 25 years in my own retail business. I am uncertain about what I want to do and would like to meet with a career couselor to discuss some different options. Do you offer this type of service?

I certainly would recommmend that you work with a career counselor. You could contact: The Jewish Vocational Service at 216 West Jackson Blvd., Suite 700, Chicago, Illinois 60606, (312) 673-3400. The Skokie office of JVS is at 5150 W Golf Road, (847) 568-5150.

The Jewish Vocational Service would be a great place to start and there are also other agencies available that are listed on this website at the Career Counseling section. The Skokie Public Library also offers free 1/2 hour sessions with a counselor to help you begin to plan your next step. There is a great deal to consider - what industry were you working in (retail covers a lot of area), what other skills have you developed, what size retail business did you own, etc? Are you willing to consider additional education and what financial needs do you have at the moment. . . . . What are your dreams for the next "chapter" of your career that have not yet been filled? You are right to understand that you could benefit from speaking to a counselor who can walk you through the process!
