    The first thing that you had to do is to identify exactly what you enjoy, what you probably need to do is do some research on your dream job

    According to Alan Watts, a respected philosopher, the best way to find what you should be doing with your life was to ask yourself this important question: "What would you do if money were no object?" What if you won the lottery and you could do whatever you wanted to do with your life? Sure, you'd want to relax for a while, but eventually you're going to get bored. So what would you do to make yourself really, truly happy?

    To avoid scams, plan several clear objectives and time scales. Be certain that you are moving forward every day to get closer to your goal. A big wall calendar will help you to out your through goals and achievements. This may take some time, but if you are willing to focus on the path you wanted to take, slowly but surely you will get there.

    Please note that while all great jobs out there are up for grabs, you have to do a reality check and make sure you are not delusional when pursuing your dream. There will be physical and other limitations that are out of your control. There could of course be very valid obstacles such as family situation or your finances; as a rule, however, there is always a solution that c...

    With the school year winding down, many high school students are looking for employment. Whether it’s our first job or our tenth, applying for a job always seems a bit challenging.

If we are truthful about what we put on a job application, and know that we can do the skills that we’ve listed, our confidence is appropriate.
