Seeking a new career that you will love?

Consider these ideas:

¿ Do some self-assessment. Take a personality test or make a list of peak experiences in your life when you felt fully energized.

¿ Collect information about various career possibilities. Look at career-related Web sites or arrange some information interviews.

¿ Try out different jobs by shadowing someone in a particular field or by doing volunteer work or an internship.
