It looks like I'm suited for the job I was doing. It's too bad that I'm sick of high tech companies because of the horrible executive management teams.

Remember, nobody can go back to the very beginning and make a brand new start, but anyone can start here and make a brand new end.

There's a difference between interest and commitment. When you're interested in doing something, you do it only when it's convenient. When you're committed to something, you accept no excuses; only results."

What do you value in a job?
(From Kim Komando

Looking for a job is never much fun. Hunting down leads, mailing résumés and interviewing is a full-time job in itself!

But, in today's economy, job searching takes on a new aura of dread. That's because competition is tight and jobs are scarce.

Let's be positive about things, though. Being between jobs is a golden opportunity. It gives you time to assess what you want in a job.

Maybe working as part of a team is important to you. Or, maybe you prefer to go it alone and work independently.

Well, today's Cool Site will help you determine what you value in a job. It can make a real difference when you're job hunting.

Just answer a series of questions. The site will determine what values are important to you. You can further rank them.

You can skip job postings that don't meet your criteria. Instead, focus on the ones that you'll find personally rewarding. This is a great tool for anyone changing jobs or just thinking about it.

You can also answer questions about your current job. This will show you how in tune it is with your values.
Normally, I would encourage everyone to assess their current job. But, hold off for now if you're gainfully employed. You might not like the results. And this is no time for an unnecessary job search!


I tried it out and found the results to be pretty accurate!

There are other tools at this site also:

Skills and Interest Assessment
CV Builder
Learning Directory
Job Profiles

Have fun with this and c'mon back and let us know what you think!
