126th In-stall-ment Published and Distributed by CSM Career Services All You Need is Love Well, no – that’s really not ALLyou need. Surely you’ve heard the old sentimental saying: “Do what you love. Love what you do.” We try to convey that message in Career Services because it can make for a much happier work life, but it can be extremely difficult to marry your work with love and your love with work. It’s tricky business – work is, after all, WORK! In honor of the heart-filled month of February, we’d like to give you a few little love notes to consider, while you work toward loving your work (or your college major). Looking to your values, your skills/abilities, your interests is, of course, very important. We can always share those lists of “top jobs” – highest paying or most openings or best future (and we often do!). But here are a few questions to ask yourself especially if you are struggling with finding a good career match. If you could change one thing about our world, what would it be? What is one topic you could talk about with some authority? What is one thing that makes you angry enough to take action? Do you generally prefer to lead or follow? If you could only play one game, would it be solitaire or Go Fish? What pattern in your life are you sick of repeating? Most proud of? What do you choose to do when there’s “nothing to do” Once you’ve answered each one honestly, see if a pattern or two emerges. If so, there may be a trail there to follow in your search for the love of your work life. Meet with a Career Counselor and explore your answers! February 2015 Ask the Wiz The Wizard of Work answers your career questions and concerns! Dear Wiz: Oh be still my heart, it’s February and I’m still single. I think it’s time for me to find a workplace that gives me a better chance of nabbing a date This graveyard shift is killing me, though the pay differential is great. Is adjusting to a new work schedule really so difficult? Dear Night Howl: We will assume you work 11 pm to 7 am. Adjusting to the same work on a different schedule is not quite as difficult as adjusting to different work on a different schedule. These types of work changes may or may not have a positive impact on your single life however. Some researchers say it can take up to 3 years to adjust to new shifts. If you give a hoot, think b4 u shift! Need Career Services? Click here!
