Post Seminary Career Decisions: Q & A with Dr. Tzvi Pirutinsky

[COMMUNICATED] In anticipation of the upcoming Women’s Career Seminar, that will take place on Monday July 2nd at PCS, at 7:30 PM, PCS spoke to Tzvi Pirutinsky, Ph.D., Career Counselor for Professional Career Services.

Q: Why is it important to receive direction before embarking in a career?

A: Many people entering the workforce or starting school have limited knowledge about careers, jobs and business; but they also know little about themselves. Getting mentorship, advice, and counseling can prevent common mistakes. It can guide you to a more satisfying and successful career, and provide the confidence and motivation to take the difficult steps necessary to launch a long-term career.

Q: What factors should one consider before choosing a career?

A: It is important to learn from women who are working in the field to get a realistic picture of the schooling, job description, and growth opportunities. One should ask herself the following questions: Will I like it? Will I excel at it? Is it practical? Will it fit in with my life style and ideals?  Does it have enough long-term growth? Will my family be supportive? Do I have interests, skills, and connections that are compatible with it? Is it realistic or very risky? 

Q: What is one of the greatest mistakes that seminary graduates make and how can it be avoided?

Q: Some girls jump into a field too quickly because it is a popular field that their friends are pursuing. It is important to make a sound decision based on what works for you.

The Women’s Career Seminar will take place on Monday evening, July 2 from 7:30 PM- 9PM. Learn from accomplished frum professionals about popular fields and career trends. Free admission. Refreshments will be served. For more information contact: 732-905-9700 ext. 610 or [email protected]
