For those of you browsing this website, I hope you’ve noted that there are some new job postings already for 2010. If you want to break into this field, taking a job mid-winter can be a great entry point. You don’t have so much competition, and there’s only half a year commitment.
It’s a fairly easy way to sample the career. But you have to be a bit adventurous. Stepping into a situation like this, you want to know what’s going on with your eyes wide open. But be open-minded, too. It might be a new beginning at the beginning of the new year.
