Hi all,

I’ve been so darn busy this week.  Apologies for not blogging, Twittering, and posting my favorite available dream jobs, etc.  We’re in process of launching our new outplacement company — very exciting!  Much more to follow on that in coming days and weeks.

SO…..going to make this quick to get the word out….and I’ll blog more over the weekend.  My Career Informer NewYorkNoelle provided me the lead to a REALLY cool dream job that’s available right now.  Are you ready, fashionistas?  Sr. Designer of Mens Sweaters at Calvin Klein in NYC!  Hello!?

Now, as always, I get nothing out of posting my favorite dream job picks sent to me from my Career Informers other than the feel-good factor.  BUT….if you land this job because of this posting, I just want you to know I’m a Medium.  Just sayin’.  😉

Sr. Designer for Mens Sweaters at Calvin Klein in NYC:  APPLY here and now! (Click on “Search Jobs” and then enter “Calvin Klein” under the drop-down brand options)

As I tell my career consulting clients, keep on dreaming AND exploring….see, there ARE great jobs out there!

Cheers!

Brian

I just have to share that we have some REALLY exciting new VocationVacations coming on board!  There are a couple that I think a couple of my career consulting clients may be interested in — take their career planning to the next level!

I’ve signed mentoring agreements in the last week with a well-known Fiction Writer, a really cool Home Builder, a Pet Sitter/Dog Walker, a phenomenal Photgrapher, an Ice Cream Maker and shop owner (yum!) AND a Radio Talk Show Host!  They all will be going live in the next week or so on VocationVacations.com!

Now you’re one of the first to know!  

If you have been laid off ,or know of someone who has been, or you fear you may be laid off, I’m happy to chat with you about going from surviving to thriving in your career transition.

As you all know, I’m really more of a “the glass is half full kinda guy”.  BUT….this has been bothering me all day:

If AIG execs get bonuses from bailout $’s as they tank a company, then what do small & medium sized business owners and not-for-profits get for SURVIVING what SOME (not all!) Wall Streeters created?  Now, I’m a capitalist, believe me….but I’m REALLY having a tough time swallowing this pill that our taxpayer dollars are funding these yahoos at AIG with fat bonuses when they epitomize failure.  

I feel like I’m living back in Eastern Europe right after the fall of communism when corruption and greed were part of most business deals.  Are we so different?  How can we allow them to take such money?  And, even more importantly, how can an AIG exec accepting such a bonus sleep at night?  Seriously.

I promise to get a good night’s sleep and be positive about things in the AM….:)

Cheers!
Brian
