Mastering Life Work Transitions: Using the Internet To Find Your Dream Job.
Knox, Deborah L.; Butzel, Sandra S.
This paper describes a workshop that involves a holistic model for career and lifework planning and a training resource for increasing competency using the Internet for career related job search activity. "Life Work Transitions.com: Putting Your Spirit Online" and its companion Web site offer career changers as well as career counselors an integrated approach that balances spiritual awareness and technology, while addressing the practical issues of retention and loyalty. The literature used within the workshop is discussed. Career counselors will find the wide range of Internet resources and suggestions for use a valuable source. "Finding Your True North" is the core four-part model for making positive centered life-enhancing career choices. The four parts consist of: analyzing and discovering what skills, knowledge, and abilities we possess; identifying where our best work can be done (working conditions); selecting criteria for describing who are our best colleagues, customers, etc.; and defining purpose and rewards that describe why we do what we do. The nine steps for using the Internet to find your dream job are described. (MKA)
