10 Tips For Making A Successful Career Change

From GameDaily.biz

* Be sure of your reasons. Just because you're unhappy in your current job isn't a strong enough reason to make a total career break. Carefully analyze whether it is your actual career you dislike or whether your employer, supervisor, or office situation is the problem.


* Wait for the right time. The best time to consider a new career is when you are safely ensconced in your existing position. It goes without saying that a steady paycheck can relieve a lot of pressure. There are many ways to take steps toward your new career path; you can volunteer or offer yourself as a freelancer or consultant. This can help you to "test the waters" in your desired new field.


* Do your research. Be sure to examine all possibilities before attempting a career jump. Talk to people in your network, read career and job profiles, meet with a career management professional. The more information with which you arm yourself beforehand, the more successful you will be.


* Have a clear plan. The smartest move you can make is to carefully map out an effective career-change strategy. This should include a detailed action plan that takes into consideration finances, research, education, and training. Keep in mind that a successful career change can take several months or longer to accomplish, so patience is key.


* Decide what's important. This is the best time for thoughtful self-reflection. Ask yourself what it is you really want to do with the rest of your life. Take an honest inventory of your likes and dislikes, and evaluate your skills, values, and personal interests. You may want to consider consulting a career coach or taking a career assessment test.


* Examine your qualifications. Do you have the necessary experience and education to be considered a qualified candidate in your desired career field? If not, you need to find a way to bridge the credentials gap. This might mean making your goal more long-term while you go back to school or receive additional training.


* Learn about the industry. Get a feel for the field that interests you. Read industry journals, attend conferences, and talk to people in the profession about what they do. Learn whether your target industry has growth potential. Trade magazines, organizations, and entrepreneurs have created a slew of Web sites with searchable databases where job openings in many industries are listed. Start looking at these sites on a regular basis.


* Develop your network. Begin nurturing professional friendships early and tend them regularly. Professional organizations and job industry trade associations are a good place to start. Many of them hold networking events and job fairs.


* Update your job search skills. It is especially important to polish up your job-hunting skills and techniques before you get out and start networking. Make sure you are using your time and resources as effectively as possible.


* Pay your dues. Don't expect to begin at the same level of seniority in your new career that you held in your old one. It will take time to move up the ranks, but if you find a new career you absolutely love, it will be worth it!

I looked at some websites talking about this and they were hysterical, calling it a Republican "power grab." However, the Democrats are trying to do the same thing in several Republican States, including Texas, Colorado, North Carolina and Florida. These websites don't mention that. So the GOP is basically defending itself by doing the same thing the Democrats want to do, but it's only bad when Republicans do it. Then it is a "scheme."

Top 10 Conservative College Campus Activists

Human Events' top 10 list of those brave enough to be conservative leaders in today's Orwellian universities.


1. Ryan Bilodeau -- University of Rhode Island
Ryan orchestrated a “Coming Out Conservative Week,” featuring events that brought attention to illegal immigration and the failures of the Social Security system. At the end of the fall semester, Ryan, with the help of his conservative club, offered a satirical white scholarship and held a Christmas-Card-Making Party for the ACLU. In the spring, he and his club celebrated President’s Reagan birthday and showed the film Obsession, which highlights radical Islam.

2. Lauren Daigle -- University of New Hampshire
Lauren organized a group of UNH students to hold an “anti-anti-war rally” in support of the troops on Veterans Day. Lauren hosted two nationally known conservative speakers, Star Parker and Dinesh D’Souza. She hosted a “Conservative Coming Out Day” event, which drew more than 150 students, 58 protestors and ended in one liberal’s being arrested when he tried to disrupt the event.

3. Joe Luppino-Esposito -- College of William & Mary
Joe led efforts to bring back the Wren Cross that was removed from the Wren Chapel by the school president. Joe formed SaveTheWrenCross.org, which featured a petition that included all who requested that the cross be restored. Because of Joe’s efforts, and after William and Mary lost millions in funding, the college announced that the cross would return to the chapel in a glass case.

4. Nicholas Hahn -- DePaul University
Nicholas helped defeat a leftist agenda to cancel the university’s contract with Coca-Cola due to alleged, and later dismissed, human rights violations. Nicholas was the driving force on the Free Speech Task Force, charged with creating a university-wide speech policy. Nicholas invited David Horowitz to speak on academic freedom and free speech before a standing-room-only crowd.

5. Luke Hellier -- St. John’s University
Throughout 2006 and 2007, Luke worked with conservative clubs to expand the conservative message through speakers, events and Young America’s Foundation conferences. Luke hosted conservative speakers, including talk show host Jason Lewis and John Stossel of ABC’s “20/20.” The event with Stossel was the largest student-organized event on campus. At the end of the year, Luke secured funds to establish a conservative book series in the St. John’s University Alcuin Library.

6. Dan Lipian -- Bowling Green State University
Daniel led his club to participate in Young America’s “9/11: Never Forget Project” in which he brought the movie United 93 to the university, displayed 3,000 American flags around the student union and held a campus-wide ceremony and candlelight vigil.

7. Tom Qualtere -- Skidmore College
Tom led efforts to organize numerous events aimed at spreading the commonsense message of conservatism. In the fall he sponsored a lecture by bestselling author Dinesh D’Souza that attracted more than 500 students, faculty members and local supporters. It was the best-attended academic event at Skidmore College in more than two years.

8. Jonathan Sawmiller -- Boise State University
After returning from a tour of duty in Iraq, Jonathan led efforts to document bias in the college’s speaker selection. He discovered that over the previous four years, BSU had allocated $300,000 for liberal speakers and nothing for conservative speakers. His effort generated so much media coverage that the Idaho Legislature called in the BSU president to interrogate him about liberal bias in the school.

9. Mary Szelistowski -- Agnes Scott College
Mary participated in Young America’s Foundation’s “9/11: Never Forget Project.” Mary brought in speakers Dr. Mike Adams to discuss the issue of abortion and Col. John Reitzell to discuss the American military. She organized additional events throughout the year, including a campaign against the Vagina Monologues, a flier drive to highlight the atrocities allowed by Roe v. Wade and a 2nd Amendment Day at the shooting range.

10. Jeff Wiggins -- Michigan State University
To begin the year, Jeff took part in Young America’s Foundation’s “9/11: Never Forget Project,” since the university had nothing planned. Jeff and his club also focused on the threat of illegal immigration and invited Colorado Congressman Tom Tancredo (R.) to speak. Jeff stood his ground in the face of violent protests targeting the congressman’s visit and was invited to talk about those incidents on the Fox News Channel.

Battle of the Political Morons: Pelosi Leads Big Over Sheehan

I wonder if Cindy Sheehan feels a little used and spit out by the Democrats. She was such a hero when doing the bidding of her former masters, but as soon as she broke free of the plantation they want nothing to do with her anymore. Is that a knife I see sticking out of Cindy's back?

The Gettysburg Address

"Fourscore and seven years ago our fathers brought forth on this continent a new nation, conceived in liberty and dedicated to the proposition that all men are created equal.

Now we are engaged in a great civil war, testing whether that nation or any nation so conceived and so dedicated can long endure. We are met on a great battlefield of that war. We have come to dedicate a portion of that field as a final resting-place for those who here gave their lives that that nation might live. It is altogether fitting and proper that we should do this.

But in a larger sense, we cannot dedicate, we cannot consecrate, we cannot hallow this ground. The brave men, living and dead who struggled here have consecrated it far above our poor power to add or detract. The world will little note nor long remember what we say here, but it can never forget what they did here. It is for us the living rather to be dedicated here to the unfinished work which they who fought here have thus far so nobly advanced. It is rather for us to be here dedicated to the great task remaining before us--that from these honored dead we take increased devotion to that cause for which they gave the last full measure of devotion--that we here highly resolve that these dead shall not have died in vain, that this nation under God shall have a new birth of freedom, and that government of the people, by the people, for the people shall not perish from the earth."

-- Abraham Lincoln
November 19, 1863

45 Goals of the Communist Party (1963)

  • 01. U.S. acceptance of coexistence as the only alternative to atomic war.
  • 02. U.S. willingness to capitulate in preference to engaging in atomic war.
  • 03. Develop the illustion that total disarmament by the United States would be a demonstration of moral strength.
  • 04. Permit free trade between all nations regardless of Communist affiliation and regardless of whether or not items could be used for war.
  • 05. Extension of long-term loans to Russia and Soviet satellites.
  • 06. Provide American aid to all nations regardless of Communist domination.
  • 07. Grant recognition of Red China. Admission of Red China to the U.N.
  • 08. Set up East and West Germany as separate states in spite of Khrushchev's promise in 1955 to settle the German question by free elections under the supervision of the U.N.
  • 09. Prolong the conferences to ban atomic tests because the United States has agreed to suspend tests as long as negotiations are in progress.
  • 10. Allow all Soviet satellites individual representation in the U.N.
  • 11. Promote the U.N. as the only hope for mankind. If its charter is rewritten, demand that it be set up as a one-world government with its own independent armed forces. (Some Communist leaders believe the world can be taken over as easily by the U.N. as by Moscow. Sometimes these two centers compete with each other as they are now doing in the Congo.)
  • 12. Resist any attempt to outlaw the Communist Party.
  • 13. Do away with all loyalty oaths.
  • 14. Continue giving Russia access to the U.S. Patent Office.
  • 15. Capture one or both of the political parties in the United States.
  • 16. Use technical decisions of the courts to weaken basic American institutions by claiming their activities violate civil rights.
  • 17. Get control of the schools. Use them as transmission belts for socialism and current Communist propaganda. Soften the curriculum. Get control of teachers' associations. Put the party line in textbooks.
  • 18. Gain control of all student newspapers.
  • 19. Use student riots to foment public protests against programs or organizations which are under Communist attack.
  • 20. Infiltrate the press. Get control of book-review assignments, editorial writing, policymaking positions.
  • 21. Gain control of key positions in radio, TV, and motion pictures.
  • 22. Continue discrediting American culture by degrading all forms of artistic expression. An American Communist cell was told to "eliminate all good sculpture from parks and buildings, substitute shapeless, awkward and meaningless forms."
  • 23. Control art critics and directors of art museums. "Our plan is to promote ugliness, repulsive, meaningless art."
  • 24. Eliminate all laws governing obscenity by calling them "censorship" and a violation of free speech and free press.
  • 25. Break down cultural standards of morality by promoting pornography and obscenity in books, magazines, motion pictures, radio, and TV.
  • 26. Present homosexuality, degeneracy and promiscuity as "normal, natural, healthy."
  • 27. Infiltrate the churches and replace revealed religion with "social" religion. Discredit the Bible and emphasize the need for intellectual maturity which does not need a "religious crutch."
  • 28. Eliminate prayer or any phase of religious expression in the schools on the ground that it violates the principle of "separation of church and state."
  • 29. Discredit the American Constitution by calling it inadequate, old-fashioned, out of step with modern needs, a hindrance to cooperation between nations on a worldwide basis.
  • 30. Discredit the American Founding Fathers. Present them as selfish aristocrats who had no concern for the "common man."
  • 31. Belittle all forms of American culture and discourage the teaching of American history on the ground that it was only a minor part of the "big picture." Give more emphasis to Russian history since the Communists took over.
  • 32. Support any socialist movement to give centralized control over any part of the culture--education, social agencies, welfare programs, mental health clinics, etc.
  • 33. Eliminate all laws or procedures which interfere with the operation of the Communist apparatus.
  • 34. Eliminate the House Committee on Un-American Activities.
  • 35. Discredit and eventually dismantle the FBI.
  • 36. Infiltrate and gain control of more unions.
  • 37. Infiltrate and gain control of big business.
  • 38. Transfer some of the powers of arrest from the police to social agencies. Treat all behavioral problems as psychiatric disorders which no one but psychiatrists can understand [or treat].
  • 39. Dominate the psychiatric profession and use mental health laws as a means of gaining coercive control over those who oppose Communist goals.
  • 40. Discredit the family as an institution. Encourage promiscuity and easy divorce.
  • 41. Emphasize the need to raise children away from the negative influence of parents. Attribute prejudices, mental blocks and retarding of children to suppressive influence of parents.
  • 42. Create the impression that violence and insurrection are legitimate aspects of the American tradition; that students and special-interest groups should rise up and use ["]united force["] to solve economic, political or social problems.
  • 43. Overthrow all colonial governments before native populations are ready for self-government.
  • 44. Internationalize the Panama Canal.
  • 45. Repeal the Connally reservation so the United States cannot prevent the World Court from seizing jurisdiction [over domestic problems. Give the World Court jurisdiction] over nations and individuals alike.
