People often get so caught up in how to make a living that they forget to make a life. Let’s face it; we are living in a world where what we do for a living has become a big part of what defines us. Our lifestyle demands and responsibility lists are so long that we have no time to pause and think if we are actually doing something we like with our life. A lot of youngsters today are riddled with what career to choose in order to lead a life that is financially stable and emotionally rewarding. A very small percentage of people are actually satisfied with their career; for most people it’s dragging themselves from Monday to Friday and waiting for the weekend. (more…)

A new study has found that more than half (55 percent) of workers consider themselves to be overweight, and 41 percent have gained weight at their present jobs. Of those who say they’ve gained weight, 59 percent gained over 10 pounds and 30 percent gained over 20 pounds. Conversely, 16 percent of all workers say they’ve lost weight while at their current job.

The national survey, which was conducted online for Careerbuilder by Harris Interactive© from February 11 to March 6, 2013, included more than 3,600 full-time workers.

8 College Degrees with the Worst Return on Investment

What’s more expensive than going to college? Until recently, the answer was easy: not going to college. Numerous studies over the years have shown that individuals with college degrees significantly out-earn those with high school degrees by $1 million or more over the course of a lifetime.

But as the cost of education increases faster than inflation and the economy remains relatively weak, people are beginning to question how they spend their education dollars. As student loans hit the $1 trillion mark and more and more graduates are faced with years of paying staggering monthly payments, many are starting to ask themselves, “Is it worth it?”

While there’s no doubt that a college degree increases earning power and broadens opportunities, today’s high cost of education means it makes sense to more carefully consider which degree you earn. When it comes to return on investment (ROI), not all degrees are considered equal. This article exposes eight college degrees with poor ROI. (more…)

A Life Outside of Entry-Level Nutrition Jobs, I Like The Sound Of That!

You’ve heard of searching for jobs by location but have you every heard of searching for jobs by lifestyle? I haven’t, but it is quite the interesting way to find entry-level job opportunities in nutrition (or any field). If you like warm weather, the snow, the mountains, exotic locales, urban areas, or the arts (the list continues), there is a nutrition job associated with that “lifestyle.” Basically, based on your personal likes and dislikes you can find an entry-level nutrition job that is the best fit for you.
Often when searching for jobs you have to be flexible if you want to find the best opportunities. When you search for a job you are pretty much placed where you are most needed and that may not be somewhere you want to be. You may love skiing and have always lived close to snow and mountains, but the only opportunities are in Florida. Well, you have to move where the opportunities are and hope you have a nice vacation schedule.
Yet, on this site, you can search for entry-level nutrition job opportunities where skiing is plentiful. You can work and play at the same time! This approach to the job search just might revolutionize the way we find jobs; at least I hope it does. I mean a happy employee is a productive employee and apparently happy employees searched for their job opportunities using lifestyles. So have fun, learn new things and search for that entry-level job (using lifestyles preferably)!!
(I list some other sites below for your entry-level nutrition job needs.)
