But what if you are in work that uses "killer skills"?  "Killer skills" are those skills that you perform very well, but that you hate using.  If you have a job that uses "killer skills", it can slowly "kill" you as it drains you emotionally and many times even physically.  The last thing you want is job where you have to keep using these skills!

If you have been working in jobs that are dissatisfying, unfulfilling and use "killer skills," then perhaps it is time to find the work that you were designed by God to do.  Professional career testing and counseling can help you to discover your motivated skills and interests as well as the types of jobs that would best fit your God-given design.  If you would like to explore how investing in affordable career services can help you to find work that you would love, you are invited to schedule a free career services consultation. (Monthly payment plans for professional career programs are as low as about $135 per month.)
