Dear Experts, I love your Bucket List webinar earlier this week! My question deals with my training as an Architect. My work experience with architecture firms and contractors is in a profession that if on a heart monitor would show a near flat line, with a 50 - 60% unemployment here in Portland. I know the bucket list approach makes sense and there are any number of sources you provided that may prove beneficial. I suppose the best advice would be to keep focusing and get laser like. I love it when I can answer my own questions. Your thoughts? Here is how our CAREEREALISM-Approved Experts answered this question on Twitter: Q#441 YES! Target firms you would love to work for. Employers would rather hire someone who wants them, so show you do! (@juliaerickson) Q#441 Yes! In fields where jobs are scarce, the need to focus on a connection w/potential employers is vital! (@jtodonnell) Our Twitter Advice Project (T.A.P.) is no longer an active campaign. To find an answer to the above question, please use the "Search" box in the right-hand column of this website.
