How's that old addage go? Those who fail to learn from history are destined to repeat it? It stands to reason, even in career exploration. Rather than going head first into a career without researching it, it may be helpful to visit with those who've already gone before you, and garner sage advice from them to save you precious time and effort.
This was the motivation behind the new feature, "Career Spotlights," which has been added to this site (accessible via the tab above). It highlights individuals currently working in a variety of fields, illustrating how they incorporate what they have learned from their previous experiences and areas of study.
So take a moment to learn from someone who has been there...and is doing that. It will likely pay off in the long run.
This section is currently in the construction stage, and will continue to grow. Are you looking for a spotlight on a particular career? Let me know by commenting on this article or emailing me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
