Where Do You See Yourself In Five Years?

This question can be posed to individuals seeking career advice or founders of start-ups looking to innovate. It is the question that begins many of my conversations with clients. This blog continues that conversation and provides readers with tips, how-tos, and other tools to help them reach their goals. Drawing on my work at River City Writing, the focus is on career planning and small business development.

I begin with a "tip"... "The 2-Hour Job Seach: Using Technology to Get the Right Job Faster." The author is Program Director for Daytime Career Services at Duke's buiness school. Unlike many job-search manuals that encourage job-seekers to leverage their relationships (still very important since two-thirds of jobs are found through personal referrals), author Steve Dalton suggests a methodology that relies on strangers. Take a look and let me know what you think.
