In the news….

New Haven Business Journal, September 2020

By Michelle Tuccitto Sullo

Have you been in the same profession since college, and you don’t look forward to going to work anymore? Maybe you have been thinking about a career switch, but you don’t know where to start.

You aren’t alone.

Daryl Capuano, CEO of Career Counseling Connecticut in Old Saybrook, knows firsthand about wanting to make a change. 

Capuano became an attorney, and for many years his law career — which included stints as a federal prosecutor and working for a large law firm — was bright. But there came a time when he realized he just wasn’t happy. He now has his own business as a career coach helping clients who want to change careers develop a plan and make it happen.

“When I was growing up, it was expected that you’d stay in your lane,” Capuano says. But now, “People are switching careers at a higher rate, and it is more socially acceptable.”

Capuano initially thought he would mostly be working with people in their early 20s, recently out of school and still settling into the work world. While that is part of what he does, a substantial portion of his job is helping mid-life career changers.

“One of the biggest surprises was that there are people in their 30s, 40s and 50s figuring out what they want to do when they grow up,” Capuano says.

Why do people want to make a change after investing years or even decades in a particular career? They are looking for meaning, purpose and simple happiness, Capuano says. 

“Many people will say they want to make a difference in the world,” Capuano says. “People in their 40s and 50s have been doing something for a while and feel, ‘This isn’t what my life is supposed to be.’ They don’t want to wake up and hate going to work.”
