Best Employment, Education, Career and Job Opportunities

Your Dream Job Is Out There and Calling You

© 2005, 2007, 2013; Patty Inglish.

Are you looking for a job or a new career? It may be actually calling to you. Read this and find out how to answer it.

Do YOU Have a Calling in Life?

You have arrived at this great site, because you are probably looking for a new job for yourself, or a family member or friend. Unemployment in America or in your particular state may be low at this time, but plenty of Americans are looking for good work that pays well and offers an opportunity for advancement and perhaps education as well. Some fringe benefits would be nice too, such as sick days, vacation time, health insurance, flexible spending accounts, retirement accounts, stock options, company discounts, and other choices. Further, most people would like to be recognized for accomplishing good things on a job they like to do.

Work and Money

When the US Federal Minimum Wage rose to $7.25 per hour, it was much more than the previous $5.15 an hour, but still not enough for a single individual to live alone in a suitable dwelling and pay for utilities, food, and clothing. How about a car, gasoline, and car insurance? Each new US Minimum Wage seems not enough.

An entry level position may not pay a lot of money, but it will give you the opportunity to find out what kinds of work you like and do not like to perform.

Work should be enjoyable. It should not be punishment. It should be something you like to do and which is suited to your talents, skills, ability to learn, and work style. You may already know what your calling in life and work is. It is that particular activity that you know you should be doing. If not, there are ways to determine your calling and we can help you.

Consult with HubPages for Your Career and Education Needs

If you are looking to change careers, develop your career into a new spin-off business or job of the future, or learn skills for a totally new career, this is also the place to look for help, information, and ideas.

Perhaps now is even the time to begin your own business. We can suggest ideas and resources for that as well.
