Return to the career I once had (the known--when I was happy) or stay in school for the unknown (when I'm not happy)? Better yet, how should I make decisions when you have lots of options and interests for the long term? [more inside]
Career Filter: I'm mid 20s, consider myself pretty lucky with a wonderful life. I'm blessed (or damned) with the ability, finances, and interests to make choices with my life. Unfortunately, I make large decisions in my life with too little thought. Based on some deliberation and discussion, I've made up two paths I want to go with, for now. I'd like some help on choosing one or the other. [more inside]
How does one go about asking an organization/company who has nothing advertised if they need any help? This would be unpaid. As I transition to another career (in this case, Urban Planning), I'm trying to get more experience and be productive at the same time. I'd like to volunteer/intern (whatever is the difference?) at firms or organizations that deal with that sort of thing (I can make that list). I think in my resume/e-mail I can explain my transferable skills (IT background). I'm doing this as I'll be attending graduate school in a year and would like to be productive outside of test prep and applications. Looking for tips on who to contact, if e-mail is the best way, and how to structure the communication.
