"Long-range planning works best in the short term" - Doug Evelyn

One of the brand new, "just out of school" guys that I work with is always asking questions about how to get ahead, should he get his MBA, what types of jobs should he be doing 5 years from now, how does he prepare for becoming a manager. All of these are great questions and he is asking them as part of his long term plan. But if you think about it, he is asking them in the short term as part of his long term plan (I know, this sounds crazy, but think about it). Your job search is much the same. Every choice you make will lead you to where you are ultimately going. Some will feel wrong, and some will be perfect, but every step is the short term of your long term plan. Now about those Thousands of jobs, yes, thousands of jobs. In fact, probably 10's of thousands of jobs. I love running these posts every few months because it gets everyone's attention. But, it's not just an attention getter, there really thousand of jobs out there, so take a look.
