It’s Not About The Job; It’s About Your Life!

By Ford R. Myers,
President of Career Potential, LLC

When it comes to job search and career development, I think 99% of the population has it wrong and “does it backwards.” This realization comes from my more than 20 years of experience as a Career Coach, and after working with literally thousands of clients.

Investment: Free!
