Thanksgiving 2016

Welcome to this special, Thanksgiving edition of Driving Your Career Starts NOW/The Newsletter.

This issue: how to answer that awkward over-Thanksgiving-dinner question about your job search.

Feelings of gratitude override those of fear or frustration. Know that if you're truly working at your career, you will reach your goal.
       Happy Thanksgiving to each one of you!

What to say when they ask...

The Question comes in various forms:
- "How is your job search going?"
- "You're STILL looking for a job?!"
-  "Why don't you go work for cousin Frankie down at his shop?"

If you are between jobs, you hate these questions. Job search today isn't what it used to be and many who are not in search (or never have been) don't understand. 

Questions like these, to someone looking for a job, are even worse than this year's most dreaded "What did you think of the election?"

For a positive-for-everyone way of handling The Question, click here and you'll be glad you did.

Be thankful for what you have; you'll end up having more. If you concentrate on what you don't have, you will never, ever have enough.
-- Oprah Winfrey

Gratitude can transform common days into thanksgivings, 
turn routine jobs into joy, and change ordinary opportunities into blessings.
  -- William Arthur Ward

Thanks for these quotes goes to my dear friend (and my coach when I was new at Xerox), Brian Corey

Your career is the treasury of your life.
