Career Advice


Finding the right career path can be a real challenge, no matter what stage in life you are at. Dream jobs can turn into nightmares, our interests and values can change, and unfortunately, lay-offs and job loss can happen.

My career path has led me to an Employment Center where my job is to help other people find success in their own careers. From applying for a new job, to starting your own business, to how to be a valuable employee, you can find career advice and the resources I use here.

I Quit My New Job! But…

… I GOT A NEW ONE! I am now working at the College as a Student Life Coach!! After I had written my last post about the anxiety and uncertainty of taking that PT job working with multicultural youth last Thursday, the universe heard me and things started to happen on Friday. The College HR department emailed and then called asking …

I Got a New Job! But…

The morning (well, afternoon) after the break-up, I woke to find an interesting email in my inbox. It was from the Executive Director of the job I interviewed for back in early April. (The one that I thought I did so well on, but was not offered the job.) The email was vague, saying that a position working with multicultural …

Interview Round 2, Here I Come!

Last Thursday, I finally had another job interview! Well, sort of. It was actually a mock session where 4 college students came to me with a problem, and then graded me on how well I interacted with them. (That’s essentially what the job is.) I could be wrong, but I feel like I KILLED IT! At first, I was nervous …

If I’m Having a Quarter Life Crisis at 30 Years Old, Does that Mean I’m Going to Live Longer?

I’m sure everyone is all too familiar with the concept of the quarter life crisis by now. It’s that feeling of being lost, confused and scared as you become an adult – you’re no longer in school, living on your own for the first time, unemployed and trying to find a job or a better job, etc. You know, all …

Job Interview Post Mortem

Perhaps it’s presumptuous for me to assume my job interview from last week is “dead”, but the more I think about it, the more I doubt they are going to offer me the position. It could very well be that I’m just so run down and jaded from my current job situation (and 5+ days of bed-rest post-wisdom teeth) that …

I’m Going to Quit My Job!

Yes boys and girls, after all the “should I?”, “could I?” back and forth of the last few months year, the multiple blog posts, the whining, the bitching, the endless complaining, I have finally made a decision: I’M GOING TO QUIT MY JOB! For those of you that know me in real life and/or follow me on Twitter, I know …

Maybe Things Don’t Suck, Afterall

I know, I know, another Personal Finance post? I promise, I will start blogging about other things (or perhaps stop blogging so much), but I’m still hung up on figuring out how to quit my second job and still make it work.  I keep reading other blogs hoping that I will find the magic answer, but alas, I know that …

Two Jobs

As mentioned in my last post, I have two jobs – a full time “career” job as an Arts Educator/Administrator, and a part-time/seasonal job as a Bar Manager – both at the same theatre. For the most part, I like both jobs, but it’s become clear in the last 6 weeks that I just can’t do this anymore. “Working a …

10 Things I Like About My Job

I’ve had a pretty rough week at work. I’m not sure if it’s because I haven’t been sleeping or if it’s the cause of the sleeping problems. Either way, I’m ecstatic that it’s Friday. It would be easy for me to write a novella about what made this week difficult, difficult, lemon difficult, but I won’t. Instead, I’m going to …
