Thinking About “The Great Resignation”? — Find your next career with “Career Compass: Finding Your Career North”

October 16th, 2021 No comments

Are you looking to become a part of “The Great Resignation” and find a new career?

Wouldn’t you love to have a magical compass to lead you through your life? One that would always show you the right answers on tests, lead you to the right college and then to the right course of study at that college. It would lead to your first job, your first (and maybe last) love and always show the path ahead. This isn’t some idle fantasy. We each have a compass to show us the way. This compass, of course, is our desire, that feeling, that pull, that tension — in some cases, an overwhelming flood of feeling that says “Yes, this is the way — this is the one — this is where you need to go!”

Career Compass will teach you how to use your personal compass to lead you to a more fulfilling career.

How you can find a job during the COVID-19 crisis via Fast Company

No one could have predicted our current reality as part of the 2020 employment forecast. As of March 26, over three million people have filed unemployment claims this week alone—the most in U.S. history. The stock market is in turmoil, drastically plummeting on an almost daily basis. The national government has now stepped in, offering bridge loans to small businesses to help them retain their employees.
 
We’re facing unprecedented times, and no one knows how long this will last. Since we cannot predict when the worst will be over or even when the virus will be contained, your best strategy is to focus on short-term solutions that will get you through this challenging time.

Doing nothing is not an option.
