Are you thinking about entering a new field - either as a career changer or as an entry-level employee? Strategic volunteering can be a great springboard. I love talking about strategic volunteering, and in my new Philly.com article, I share a couple of great resources - one local, one national - to help prospective volunteers find the perfect opportunity.
If you work in public relations or any highly "visible" profession (or you aspire to), I have some career tips to help you get ahead in this growing field. Reneé Velez serves on the Communications Committee with the Philadelphia Public Relations Association and asked me to share some thoughts with the PPRA blog's readers. If you're a PR professional, let me know if there are any tips or tricks you feel others in the field ought to consider as they seek to advance their careers.
I'm a certified career coach based in Philadelphia. I started my own practice to help people land their dream jobs and achieve their individual definitions of success.
I also keep this blog with my musings on changes in the employment landscape, advice for job seekers, links to other career-related articles, and anything else that catches my interest.
