Dream Job --> Dream Career

I have a really cool job: I help low-income/minority students get into college.
(It's perfect for me because I'm passionate about educational access and I get to work with young people one-on-one, but I'm not tied down to a classroom.)
Right now, my job is short-term, a la Teach for America, but I'd like to stay in the educational field and turn this job into a long-term career.

My question is two fold: How do I go about finding jobs like this and what sort of educational credentials/degrees do I need to qualify for these jobs? [more inside]

How can I make myself "job-ready" for a marketing career in 2009?

I have not worked since April 2005 due to bipolar disorder but my mood has been better lately and I want to use next year to get myself ready for returning to work, maybe even actually getting a job if that's possible. However I have had three years of depression - lying in bed listening to music all day or surfing the net, getting no exercise, eating junk foods. I feel my mind has turned a bit mushy and that if I was to start in a job tomorrow I would shortly end up the way I was before I left my last one (feeling overwhelmed, paralysed into inactivity, sometimes just staring blankly at my PC monitor). I feel I have a great deal of intertia to overcome. Has anyone been in a similar situation, and what's the best way to proceed? [more inside]

SO offered job in another city. I'm not sold on it being a hot idea.

Short version: My wife has been offered a two year position in another city. I want to support her and this may be a good opportunity for her, but my instinct says it would be a mistake for our future and our finances.
