Thank you so much for this article. I have a question. I think my friend needs career counseling, I realize the benefits of it myself, but my friend refuses to accept the fact that he needs help. He cannot cope with his career difficulties in any way, sometimes I hint to him for a consultation. What do you think I should tell him so that he understands that the consultation will be very useful, and there is nothing wrong with it?
