Regardless of what you have heard from the media, it is now a fact that The American Recovery Act has created over 2 million new jobs.

A good website to look into is www.FindGovernmentJobs.info.

How to Choose a Career Counselor, Coach or Advisor

Many of you have asked me how to select a career counselor, coach or advisor. Fair question.

1. Get names from friends and past clients.

2. Call at least three counselors and evaluate them based on your needs.

3. If you have a gut feeling that the personality match between you and the counselor is poor, it is a danger sign - STOP!

(If you wish to see a more detailed 20-point plan of approach, you will find it in the book, Career and Life Counseling from the Heart, by Don Sutaria.)

How to Discover Your Passion and Calling in the World of Work
(Where Do I Go From Here with My Life?)

Folks, check your coffee cups from Starbucks. You may find Po Bronson's quote, "Failure's hard, but success is far more dangerous. If you're successful at the wrong thing, the mix of praise and money and opportunity can lock you in forever."

Note that the choice isn't about a career search so much as an identity quest.

You must know what you love to do, and make that passion your work.
