Sad to say, many people pay a lot for career counseling -- and don't have much to show for it. But people who run these services are making a lot of money! Here's a link to a great article on Monster.com about free Internet-based services to help you assess your career direction. I think this is a good place to start, and I'm sure you can find more resources online if you are willing to work at it. At that point, you might want to sign up for a free introductory session with a career planner, to see if you are going down the right path. Good for you for approaching this in a serious and methodical way.
