Anyone know where I can get free career coaching or help on how to figure out what work direction to take?

Thank you!

Free advice is something I would be wary about. I think there are alot of jokes to be made about that concept.

Why dont you open up to the forum the people here on DDF- which includes some very smart people with diverse backgrounds and some dumb ones (you know who you are). We the people would give you advice publicly, so it may be scrutinized, and thus reliable.

I don't know if it's free, but you can look into what PCS has to offer. They're a non-profit division of Agudath Israel. I imagine their services would be more affordable than others even if they do charge.

I've read very good things about https://www.jocrf.org/  NOT FREE.

I've been waiting over 5 years with bated breath for someone to say that!

In my city there are local Jewish organizations that offer free career counseling programs.

Try searching for Jewish vocational groups.

PCS a division of Aguda does this. I know they were looking to start something in Israel. You should definitely reach out to them

Just thinking at loud here if you know what your goals are then take a job around that and donít settle meaning if you need to control your times then you most come your own boss or a job that allows you to control your time. Now think what you want in life and what gets you motivated and seek a jobs that fit your values. Might seem simple enough but a lot of folks me included bounced around jobs till they found what they were looking for, because they were just taking a job because they needed one and said mabye this one is it but really knowing itís not what you wanted long term some folks do this for life. (And hate their jobs)

I bounced from one job to another till I relaised I canít work my brains out to build someoneís elseís Company so eventually I opened my own took me time but with praying and hashems help youíll be fine.

PCS only works in the US and could not recommend anything in Israel. Nefesh B'nefesh sent me some links for free aptitude tests and resources which I don't think will help me. I need a person I could ask advice from.

This would have been helpful but I'm more then 10 years in Israel and over the age.

So judging from the amount of views on this post should I become a career counselor and offer my services free to anyone anywhere in financial need? Anyone willing to fund this chesed org.?

PCS actually advertised that they are seeking someone to do this in Israel
