Optimism for job seekers

Author: Lori Howard

I’m cautiously optimistic.  Actually, I’ve been harboring optimism about the job market for some time now – especially for those willing to do the work required to get hired.  Only now I have concrete data to back me up!  Check out this job market update in today’s WSJ!

More reason to be perhaps a bit more than cautiously optimistic, and go for full-blown optimism!

Client Stories

I hired Lori because I was feeling stuck in my job and needed to find a career that was more rewarding, more challenging, and more suited to me.  In the arts, it's difficult to find a job you enjoy that also pays enough to live on, but Lori helped me do just that! 

As we worked together, Lori always helped give me that extra nudge when I was having trouble taking the next step toward success and acknowledged and applauded me when I accomplished something that I'd been struggling with. 

Thanks to Lori, I got out of my 8-year rut at the same job and discovered a new career I love that brings me all of the things I want in a job--creativity, variety, challenge, learning, flexibility, teamwork, and cake.  With no professional experience but a desire to learn, Lori helped me find ways to become a cake decorator--first on my own and then, eventually, at a reputable cake shop.  Now, something I used to do just for fun has become something I make my living doing, and each workday flies by!
