Answers for all your job questions


Guidance counselors aren’t just for high school students anymore.


In today’s job market, you can’t afford to get comfortable. If you aren’t learning new skills and finding new ways to contribute in the workplace, you run the risk of becoming obsolete. But it’s not always easy to figure out the best way to move forward at your job. This is when career counseling becomes invaluable to you, as you struggle to find the best way to advance your career.


Many companies are offering career counseling as a job benefit, and the advantages help the organizations as much as the individual employees. By directing people to learn the skills the company needs, they gain the advantage of helping employees grow into the roles they want to have filled.


Whether your organization offers counseling or not, it can sometimes help to have your job questions answered by an impartial counselor. This is where the Experts on JustAnswer come in, offering you their career advice with anonymity.


You can even ask follow-up questions, and approve payment only when you’re completely satisfied.

How to get career advice online


The qualified Experts on JustAnswer regularly respond to career counseling questions like:


  • How do I talk to other hiring managers within an organization without offending my existing manager, in case the role change doesn’t happen?
  • What is the easiest way to get into workamping even before one gets an RV or motorhome?
  • What advice would you give to a 30-year-old with a high school diploma and 12 years of customer service experience?
  • Besides pizza delivery, what are some other possible job options if I can only work on Saturdays and Sundays?
  • I want to be acclimated in case I have a job interview, so can you get me some information so that I can review fracking and cementing?

To give you the best advice, the Expert will need some information. You should be ready to answer questions such as:


  • What are your needs and challenges?
  • Have you prepared a resume?
  • Do you have relevant education or certifications?

With this information, you'll be ready to have a constructive session with the career advisor.
