Choose Your Own Adventure Game

I want to do an exercise with my high school students to help them understand the benefits of having going to college, like a 'Choose Your Own Adventure' type of game, where they go through a series of life events and the options they have available to them are based on the level of education (hs dropout, hs graduate, associates, bachelors, masters, PhD, professional) that I've assigned to them. Does something like this already exist or do you have any suggestions for types of questions/scenarios I can ask them? [more inside]

What are the best marketing departments with the best career potential

What are the best Marketing departments with the best career potential? After more than a decade with one employer, I feel like it may be time to stretch my wings and find some new challenges. I've largely built my current department, so in a way, it is limited by my own perspectives. I'd be looking for a place that's more sophisticated where I could be exposed to new techniques and tools that would allow me to grow faster than I can on my own. [more inside]

What Do I Do With My Life (Next)?

Looking for alternate career paths: one 30-yo-ish web designer who just ain't into it and seeks pastures in shades of More Meaningful. I'm pretty friggin' unhappy doing what I'm doing. I've done the 'What Colour Is Your Parachute' exercises (results within) but am being held up by uncertainty and not really knowing much about many careers outside my immediate sphere of influence. And, ok, probably by being an INFP, too. ;) Help? Sorry -- this is long. [more inside]

I got a new boss and my previously near-perfect job has changed significantly (in a bad way). Should I quit?

I've been at my tiny non-profit for over three years. Last summer I got a new boss who's changed the workplace from a fairly egalitarian, self-managed environment to an autocratic, micro-managed one. For instance, I used to have a modicum of creative control over the media and newsletter I produced and now I have none. Folks keep saying I should talk to her but she's very dominant and she informed me the first week she came on the job that she's a micro-manager. I'm not paid well enough to stay if I'm not enjoying myself, but I am highly invested in the people we serve and keep imagining that maybe I'll adjust and she'll chill and we'll be able to go back to "the way it was". Am I hoping against hope? Anyone been to the other side?

I'm trying to choose between bachelor's degrees in mechanical engineering and electrical engineering. Other than jobs where you are actually "engineering" things, what jobs would each one be able to get? Also, I hear that engineering disciplines overlap in some ways. What are the similarities and differences between electrical and mechanical? Thank you.

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]
