I work full-time at a public university as a general academic advisor, study skills instructor, and coordinator of a mentoring program, but I'm having trouble sorting out the next step in my career progression. Most positions look like too much of a leap or just a lateral move. The career center is strictly reserved for students and may be too close to my own office not to be an issue anyway. HR doesn't seem to serve a career advising function here. I'm considering some serious changes too: law school, PhD in Higher Ed Adminstration, MSW - all will require quitting the job in order to pursue the degree. One exception is a leadership PhD program here, but doesn't sound brilliantly interesting (neither does higher ed admin, but it's practical). Maybe there are other options out there? Feeling pidgeon-holed into academic advising...
You didn't say where you were located.
Have you taken a Career Assessment lately? If you and I were to meet, that would be my first recommendation. I would be interested in learning what type of jobs come up on an assessment that calculates career paths that meet your interests, values, skills, and overall desires.
Feel free to send me an email for further direction.
