NPT Jobs Recommends: 7/11/2011

The beautiful yet horrible weather continues this week on the east coast.  Although the skies have been blue, the heat has been almost unbearable.  Luckily air conditioning exists.

  • 'Sorry Gang.  It Takes Effort'-An interesting post on job boards.  The author believes they should be used mainly as a tool, not a primary source for your job search.
  • 'Motivation Monday: Visualization'-The Career Sherpa writes up a useful meditation-like exercise on how you can visualize your perfect job.  This isn't for everybody, but I find it very fascinating and I think it could be useful for a lot of people out there.
  • 'Are Job Fairs a Good Use of Your Job Search Time?'-Job fairs are definitely a good use of your time, but you should definitely heed the advice of this article: Before you attend, make sure there are organizations there that are of interest to you and, most importantly of all, make sure they are actually hiring.

  1. Thanks so much for referencing my post!

    You are right, it may not work for everyone. However, I found when I went through a similar exercise several years ago, it helped me clarify my longer term career vision!

    Great to know about your site dedicated to helping those seek and find nonprofit employment!
