Why do you need career advice? Well, what happens when there is a mismatch between your aptitudes and your job? For anyone other than humans, the answer to this question is: extinction. But because we humans are so adaptable, we survive, but at a terrible cost. What gets extinguished is the pure joy of life spent doing something that comes absolutely naturally. We spend our days in our job feeling either bored, frustrated, and/or sense that "something is missing". Sometimes having only one thing out of whack can ruin their chance for career satisfaction. They key is to get career advice to find out which ones are messing you up.
Some people feel that they probably already know what their abilities are. However, this is rarely completely true. School and work typically use only a few natural abilities. It's exceedingly difficult to tell from grades, scholastic tests, or job performance just what your real abilities are. You could have a very strong natural talent for something and never know it.
Some people think that abilities don't matter because they already hate a job they're supposedly "good at". It is true that many times people are successful in their work and good at what they do, but are terribly unhappy with the career. Usually this is because they have some of the abilities necessary for success, but they often have other abilities that are either (a) not being used, or (b) the tasks they're performing or the environment they're in is not right for other abilities.
