Changing Careers

Are you looking at expanding your career options because your first dream seems unattainable? An important first step is building excitement for your new dreams. When you walk through the door for your interview, the person on the other side will not know nor, from a work perspective, will they care about your disappointment. They are comparing you with candidates who have been dreaming of their position from the start. Getting over the hump of changing directions, and building a positive direction for your new career is critical before you hit the interview circuit. Below you will find the thoughts and experiences of others who have had to grapple with this challenge. For a break from the hard work, visit the Humor section of the Bookstore.
