Where can I find resources that help me love my job and thrive in my career?

I’m declaring Friday’s ONLINE RESOURCE DAY.  This where I’m going to post links to really insightful posts, helpful websites, online resources you can access for some valuable help and support in your career.  They might help with the job search, or dealing with troubles on the job, or how to find a career you’ll love.  But you can trust that I’ve spent time reviewing them for you, so you don’t have to go hunting. 

There’s a lot of fluff out there, a lot of mis information.  The links that make it here will have been reviewed and vetted. 

Let’s get started, shall we?
Here’s the link that inspired me to do this:
A Guide for Recruiting: http://fastgrowth.biz/2010/06/in-praise-of-generalists-a-guide-for-recruiting/ (link updated 7/6/10)
I recommend you take these points, and turn them around.  Be sure you are focusing on these qualities in your career, and revealing them in your resume, in your interviews.  Also, these are qualities you want to demonstrate to your boss and peers in your current job – to help secure your position.  (True for those all up and down the corporate hierarchy.)

Client Stories

I have found Lori’s webinars and her services to be extremely informative. Her professional deportment is exemplary, she is easy to converse with and she is very helpful with ideas and comments. Her knowledge of the business climate in the US and western countries serves her well. She is also an expert of making tools such as LinkedIn work for you…whether you are looking for another position or whether you are growing your own business. I cannot say enough good things about the way she manages her seminars, the usefulness of her websites and her offering. She takes the time to understand your particular situation, and interacts with you to guide you to make the right decisions. If you are looking for a career coach, get her services and you will not be disappointed.
