This month we explore another growth area for different reasons - the role of "geeks" - is this for you? In our article Best Jobs for Geeks, we explore how you can take a hobby, such as your love for gaming or social media, and translate that into viable careers.

If you are still on the job hunt, we're sure you've received all types of advice - from "it's time to give up," to "you might want to choose a different career." In our article, Worst Career Advice Ever, we dissect the good from the bad, and help you understand that a successful job search stems from perseverance and the willingness to do whatever it takes to achieve your career goals, regardless of what advice others offer.

Along these lines, if you are looking to move into a new direction, we continue to talk about different career fields. Last month we talked about A Career in EEO/OFCCP Compliance, a high growth field stemming from diversification in the workforce, and the subsequent rules and regulations it impacts.

Although January has come and gone, it is not too late to make additional resolutions. In our article, Top Resolutions for the New Year we take you through the best approaches to maintaining a job-search or finding work-life-balance. From committing to spending an allotted time each week to achieving your career goals, to alternately knowing when to take a break, to designating time in your day to "de-stress," these tips can help you manage the rigors of job and work - whether you're looking for employment, currently employed or actively seeking a new career.
