Instead of an article, this week I have a question for you…

“Which two job or career transition activities do you spend the most time on? Be specific!”


  1. 1. Agonizing
    2. Fretting

    going to networking events

  3. 1 – Futilely checking online job boards for career change ideas and possibilities, then preparing targeted cover letters to highlight my portable skills – to never get a response.

    2 – Researching different career options up to a point and then not committing to a direction.

  4. 1) Networking in person

    2) LinkedIn networking

  5. #1-reading endless career articles and books and not being able to decide which career I like best and fretting that I would have to go back to school and rack up more student loans. That, or start at the bottom and go back to jobs where I don’t even make enough to pay my bills.

    #2-Futilely searching online job boards and actual company websites, applying to the few jobs that really interest me, and never hearing back. (I do try to utilize my network of family and friends, but no one knows of any job openings.)

  6. 1) Checking online job boards for any job I may be qualified for.
    2) Making follow-up phone calls for those jobs.

  7. 1) Drafting targeted cover letters for positions that might work with my education and experience.

    2) Futilely trying to follow-up on positions for which I have applied.

    2. networking

  11. 1. Taking part in LinkedIn discussions. It keeps my mind active, gives me hope that I might still have something to contribute to the world (thereby slowing the loss of my sanity), and constitutes a part of “networking.”
    2. Continue reading about resume and interviewing skills, as well as downloading tech articles that I’ll probably never read.

  12. 1) Checking for all available relevant openings and drafting targeted cover letters

    2) Follow-up on positions for which I have applied.
