"The job market is showing signs of life, but with U.S. unemployment nearly 10 percent, most workers feel fortunate just to land a position. In fact, they feel so fortunate that they often ignore warning signs that the job doesn't fit with their life needs.

A single mom, Smith discovered her boss was a workaholic, that taking vacation was taboo and that the work day ended well after 7 p.m. She was headed for work/life disaster."

In other words, it's important to know oneself and what your career needs are in order to complement your lifestyle...that is if one can afford to be "choosey"...!

Anyone else have job-seeking words of wisdom to pass along for the benefit of others...?
