Judy Panagakos, a Master Career Coach, answers the all important question…

How to Find the Job That Will Launch Your Career?

Parents want to ensure that their college graduate makes the transition to professional life smoothly and successfully. This important and sensitive work must start with identifying a career direction that makes sense for the individual. Navigating the highly competitive process alone, and executing the many steps involved, is a daunting prospect for young people.

Established professionals can make it seem easy to prepare for and find a job, because in some regards the process is simple, but actually doing it is not easy at all. The very real challenges become apparent once you begin, and they frequently contribute to anxiety felt by the job seeker and their families.
