Is the 'Bucket List' Approach Suitable for Me?

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!

In this week's episode of Well This Happened, we discussed Rich's tough situation.

Rich left his job to take care of a sick family member. Now, 2 years later, Rich is trying to re-enter the work force. However, he's finding it difficult to explain that 2 year gap in his work history during interviews. We asked you how you would answer this question, did you guess correctly?
