3 Ways to Tell if this Site's Right for YOU
Careerealists all share 3 simple, yet vital traits for success.
After that clandestine meeting with a reader, I took the time to contemplate what defines a Careerealist. I came up with a list of more than fifty traits, but finally simplified it down to 3 core beliefs adopted by true Careerealists. We all: 1. Recognize and accept EVERY job is temporary. 2. View ourselves as businesses-of-one who need to always be developing an attractive personal brand we can market as needed. 3. Engage in career development activities, even when we are gainfully employed, by sharing our thoughts, reading up on the latest trends, and focusing on ways to stay employable long-term. If you said, “That sounds like me,” when reading the above, then you are definitely a Careerealist! It also means we’d like you to join your peers and become recognized for your professional savvy. STARTING TODAY…Share Your Thoughts & Get Recognized for Your Contributions First, we’d like to invite you to post a comment below explaining why you feel you are a Careerealist.

A. Explain what you feel you are doing differently than others.
