Alejandro Hernandez and his dad enjoyed spending time reading together at
a Title I Family Fun Night for Lark and Olney elementary school students held
Nov. 10 at Lark School in Northwood. About 30 families were served a hot
dog dinner, made a craft, read with a partner, and played trivia games. The
highlight of the literacy event was reading to a therapy dog.

 

Few years have witnessed more people attempting a career change than 2009. Thanks to the economic downturn, many people found themselves out of a job and wondering what to do next.

For many of the nation's younger unemployed workers, such wondering commonly led to furthering their education. However, middle-aged workers who found themselves the victim of layoffs widely chose to seek a career change. Those considering such a change should know it won't be easy, but it could prove rewarding and doesn't have to be as difficult as it seems.

• Consult a professional. Much like a recent college grad discusses his career plans with a guidance counselor or alumni representative, an adult considering a career change should consult a professional, be it an employment placement specialist or someone who works in the field you desire to enter, when beginning a job search. A professional can provide an accurate portrayal of the field and give advice or tips as to how best to get your foot in the door.
