    yes, extremely helpful for a recent college grad like me! seems almost simple!

    but i'm in a position where i've found work that i love... but a commute that i hate... and pay that just doesn't cut it... oy vey!

    great article! so many people seem to spin their wheels during the job hunt ... not realizing they might have settled on the wrong career in the first place. this forces them into an unfulfilling job and eventually leads to other possible issues such as depression and misery. it's a shame ... we spend so much of our lives in our career — or at a workplace — that i agree we need to take the time to better prepare ourselves for the outcome of poorly thought out career choices. our careers define who we are as human beings and what we ultimately want to get out of this world. thanks for your valuable tips and insight.

      Totally! I live in NYC and am regularly reminded (during the stressful morning commute, in awkward office building elevators...) of the price we pay when we don't make the effort to be happy in our jobs. But solutions are usually out there if we take the time to work them out!
