Is your career like a roller coaster?

My kids love the roller coasters, but I’m not such a fan. Unfortunately a career can be like a roller coaster as well.

You can climb up really slow, slide gently with considerable speed up the next hill and then get into a huge spiral that scares you, only to come to a sudden halt and all turned out to be fine.

Like with taking a ride in the roller coaster, you need to be prepared when you embark on your career path. You need to be of a certain height and weight for the roller coaster and you need to be educated and skilled for your career path. You need to fasten your seat belt in the roller coaster and likewise you need to make sure you take care of your career and take precautions not to slip out of control. The roller coaster has a fixed path but you may not know it and experience the ride as  a series of sudden twists and turns, well similarly in your career, although there may be a path when you look back at retirement, you may not be able to see it clear when you are in the middle of it.

Try to relax and enjoy your ride, with the right preparation you will even enjoy it more. Don’t be too concerned with the fast downhill slopes and remember to be mentally prepared for the next tail spin, after all, other than with the roller coaster, you can steer your career path and work to get back on track.

 

Your career and your groceries

Do you always shop at the same grocery store? Well you may want to change that habit and go check out some other grocery stores. Although they are all grocery stores, they do have differences and offer different products. You will always find your bread, milk and potatoes there but it is the specialties that make shopping around so interesting.

Likewise with finding a job. If you always search in the same newspaper, magazine or on the same website, you may want to check out our listing with alternative job search sites. Sure you will find many the same or similar jobs listed but you will also start to appreciate the special focus that some search engines bring to your job search.

We try to list many interesting sites for job searches but if we missed one that you find great, let us, know. Happy Hunting!

Let me help you at least figure out the next step in your career and how to get there. If you want to pass your driving test you have a driving instructor, but you need to drive, if you want to win your tennis game, you have a coach, but you play, if you want to secure that next great job you should not go it alone.

Our motto: The best have a coach, the best deserve a coach, the best are the best because they used a coach!
