  • Education is always a great idea. Go to the library and pick up a copy of What Color is My Parachute.

  • Health care is in huge demand. I'm going to school for nursing and I know that I'll always have a job, as long as I want to work.

  • What are your interests? Choose something you love. If you choose a field of study because you think you can make a lot of money but don't enjoy what you do, you will burn out and be miserable.

  • all good advise. Also check to see if you qualify for government assistance due to being unemployed. There may be a quick training program that leads to an actual job. check with our unemployement/re-employment office.
