Last month’s jobs report issued by the US Department of Labor showed a slowdown in hiring. Alternately, a survey just released this week from the Federal Reserve on business conditions across the United States suggests that this may be temporary. What should you believe?

While mixed news on the jobs front and the economy may leave many thinking they need to seed control of their careers to others, our articles this month prove otherwise.

Looking at the current jobs market – good, bad or getting better – can leave many a job seeker thinking that choice, when it comes to career fulfillment, is out the window. But this is not always the case.

In our article Your Career: What Do You Really Want to Do?, we look at why choosing a fulfilling career not only leads to personal happiness, but job success. This may mean investing in a complete overhaul of your career, seeking new opportunities with your current employer, or simply looking at your job differently. Regardless of which path you choose, investing time – and energy – in finding a career you enjoy should be considered a priority. Read this informative article for some great tips to help you on your own path.

The jobs market may also fuel even greater concerns when it comes to review time. What if you are one of those unfortunate enough to have received a bad one – can you survive? While there is no clear answer for everyone, there are ways to approach this issue.

How to Survive a Bad Performance Review outlines several tactics to turn a bad situation into a better one. Any manager will be more than pleased to work with an employee who is willing to put in the extra effort to improve their performance. These tactics can help.
