I'm looking for a professional careers coach in LA to give me advice about changing careers (especially ones who are good at talking with MBA grads who don't necessarily want a typical MBA-type job). The variety of coaches available out there is a bit confusing and some of them are expensive - can anyone personally recommend one? And what criteria should I be judging them on anyway? [more inside]

I am planning on applying to economics PhD programs for next year, but before I commit I wanted to think about alternatives, especially in light of all the articles lately about how PhD programs and academia in general are a pyramid scheme.
What other careers/education might be a less painful way of getting to a job that fits my life goals. [more inside]

I'm 26 years old and stuck in a IT-contracting loop. Would an MBA, Masters or going back to get certified in certain hardware/software help me out? What kinds of opportunities could they open up? [more inside]

My boyfriend is almost finished with his MBA from a state university, with focus in marketing and human resource. He struggled just to come up with an unpaid internship. He is not a US citizen which complicates his finding job. Is there much hope out there for him finding a job that has something to with his degree, aside from selling clothes in a department store, like some other MBA grads we know. What is the best part of the country to look for a job? Any advice is welcome.
