Your goals might be short term or long term or a combination of both. Hopefully you’ll be planning for the long term while realizing that short term decisions may help or hurt your ability to reach the longer term goals you set out for yourself. I came on your lens on reasons for homelessness looking for some lenses to include in the discovery module for one of my own. I’m grateful there’s a lens master with your experience and point of view on homelessness willing to publish it. I feel proud of what you’ve achieved on squidoo!

Dear Lauren, I’ve just discovered your blog. I read all your older posts and I found them very interesting. I’m glad to hear you are fine and you have a new job you love. If you don’t enjoy selling, well, it’ll be harder for you to land that dream job. Unfortunately, it’s one of those things you have to do in life.Job and Career

I have worked for nearly 20 years in retail pharmacy as a pharmacist. It’s a great job, but the high-pressure working environment, frequent chaos, management pressure, and often irrational requests from patients are simply not everyone’s cup of tea. Well-trained pharmacy technicians can make your day a lot easier, and they provide substantial comfort and care to concerned customers. when you pass Part 3 – you then have to apply to join the register as an ADI and receive your ADI licence. This costs £300.00 and you will have to pay a further £300.00 every four years to renew your ADI registration. Sorry for all the Spongebob references – all this talk of the future has me nostalgic.

Lots of good points here. There are always negatives to focus on if you set your mind that way. But don’t forget the little perks you sometimes forget while you are working – I try to remind myself of that. To increase your job security and career well-being, adopt a free agent outlook on work This means spending time planning ahead, building marketable skills, and prioritizing your health and family.

We are currently doing our best to help a friend who has become homeless. He defaulted on his mortgage, and despite finding a solution before the hearing, the judge said the Building Society could foreclose. He had only a week to get out and bailiffs came round and smashed up his crockery and personal possessions before the time was even up! It is an awful situation to be in, his parents are dead, he is estranged from his brother…. nowhere else to turn but friends. Nobody should condemn the homeless.

In other words, you should be investing at least some emotional energy into a career. You should be looking for ways that you can get promotions and raises and … Read more

So, we’re in the midst of Job Shadow Week here at the U of A. (And yes, you did read that correctly… it isn’t just Reading Week.) Maybe this is the first time you’re hearing about it; or maybe you’ve already signed up, except you’re now on the fence about participating because you realized that you actually wanted to spend the entirety of Reading Week catching up on all the sleep you’ve missed… Regardless, I’m here to tell you why job shadowing is a GIANT step in the right direction! In the Vancouver, Lower Mainland area there are a large number of administrative assistants seeking employment. Although there are company’s seeking to hire for these positions, many appear to be rather particular about who they hire making it an extremely competitive job market.

Monday, May 2 is my last day of teaching. Not that I will never step into a classroom again, but it marks the end of my full-time employment by Macalester College. My responsibilities for the future will not require any teaching. I am looking forward to the freedom this phased retirement will bring to focus on my writing and other educational activities, but I also approach this date with some sense of loss. For forty years, I have defined myself as a teacher first. I am taking advantage of this column to reflect on a few of the lessons I have learned over these four decades in the classroom. THANK YOU for writing about INFP’s! I am one of them and am grateful you chose ‘us’ to focus on, when there are so many other types also. I am a Career Services Advisor helping graduates navigate the job search process. I am also a Certified Professional Resume Writer and love the combination of writing resumes that help people in their search, and the opportunity to work 1:1 with job seekers. It is a great career field. A book I recommend to the person who mentioned motivation is Refuse to Choose … Read more
