I am a 24 year old who just graduated from an art school with a Bachelor of Fine Art. I thought I was going to study film (a last minute decision because I am a visual/creative person and I thought it would be a glamourous job). It turns out I learned the basics of filmmaking on my own (from lighting to editing and everything in between) but very basic. I was never too ambition in school or just in general. I'm not a go-getter and pressure stifles me greatly but at the same time I need deadlines to get things done.

The degree I have is in "integrated media" which stands for NOTHING and I have no idea what it is I even learned. Everything was geared towards concepts and putting your "work" in art galleries.

Now I have no idea what direction to take in my life and it's gotten to the point where I am suicidal about this because I have so little confidence that I have even found it almost impossible to carry out a retail job seasonally.

I don't want to work minimum wage for the rest of my life and I'm not sure what I'm qualified to apply in. I don't know how to get into the film industry and everyday I am searching for new careers to look into and thinking I should be "x" or "y" or "z".

Whatever it is I do I want to be creative and I love helping humans and animals.

Has anyone had this problem?
It's gotten so bad that I have been having extremely severe insomnia for about 4 months now.

Any advice would be good.

Thank you.

Sorry for off topic, but I need to know the opinion of the majority.. I am currently working in a big company and due to the financial crisis my Head Manager told me to improve my education or I will be fired. Thus I decided to get an MBA degree. But.. I can not leave my workplace right now.. too costly for me.. that's why I decided to go in for online MBA program. Is it OK? How can they give diploma at all at the distance? Thanks for all the answers!

Community Healing Arts & the Circle of Life
I am working to open a family healing arts center in my community to provide a spectrum of care for infants to adults, including midwifery, craniosacral therapy, chiropractic, parent groups, childbirth ed, and workshops. My passion is craniosacral, doula care, teaching, and community organizing.

This will happen within the next year, and I am currently gathering resources, developing my business plan, and working with local community small business resources to create a solid plan and support system. I also have practitioners interested and a space lined up for 2009.

I am also a hoopdancer and teacher, and I am in a contest to win $10,000 for my hoopdance video: Gemini Hoops. http://www.clipstar.com/videopage.jsf?video=9_7002_159

Will you please vote for my video and help to fund the creation of my healing arts center? I am currently in 2nd place, and if I win this contest, it will go toward to creation of my family healing arts center and community healing project.

Thank you! I greatly appreciate your support! Your vote counts, please show your support!


Gratitude & Blessings, Kara

1000 Double Sided Business Cards $49.95

Printing is a formal part of any marketing effort unfortunately it is usually the reason why many companies don't market their companies effectively. 1) Most companies don't have a graphic design team or someone skilled enough to create powerful visually attractive material. 2) Although print is a relatively inexpensive form of marketing, marketing must be done repeatedly so the cost can grow quickly. 3) Finally a pretty presentation does not always lead to effective marketing.

At Business Management Solutions we have addressed all of these concerns for our small business clients and developed a truly affordable print solution and mailing solutions for our small business clients. Our prints are top quality full gloss prints and we print every form of marketing material available today.

Brand new career advice community in need of MORE career advice. JOIN NOW!!

Brand new career advice community!
Are you successful in a career? In your job? Professionally polished? Published some career-related advice elsewhere? Are you a career coach? Like giving career advice? Want to help people succeeded professionally? Aware of the changing career trends that people must be aware of?

Then this community is for you!


Instead of the community being a boring a Q & A forum, it will consist of only advice (of course but with questions every now and then). Think of the community as an open bulletin with the difference that people can comment on them. The community will emulate that of professional blogs but also a place to have fun. Oh! You don't have to be a working professional, anybody with a decent job can join. The community needs good career advice. That is all.

The reason why I created this community because career trends are changing drastically especially for the 21st century and young professionals like me must be aware of this. Advice of the older generation may not be as useful anymore because technology is constantly changing and therefore it affects the workplace. It isn't unusual for employees to have a MySpace or Facebook account and updating them on company premises so it's important to know how things like this affect career trends.

I'm in the early stages of planning to start a photography business. This is the research stage, where I gather word of mouth info.
My education involves a Writing and New Media Technologies diploma, where I first was introduced to the camera and photoshop. Since then, I've been creating all manner of art and I've excelled at my photoshopping skills enough that I think I might have a service to offer. This after looking around at a tremendous amount of crap that people actually pay for.
Until demand dictates that I limit my services, I thought about offering everything I can do, including:
Photo restoration
Family portraits
Personal portraits
Animal portraits.
Photoshop services that essentially equate to art, as I assume alot of people might want something different. This is, infact, where I thought I would drum up the most business.

I live around Edmonton Alberta, Canada, if that's of any consequence?

What I need are testimonials and advise from anyone that might have some. Is there anyone in the business that might shine a flashlight on this newcomers path?
How might I best advertise?
Should I stop dreaming until I get a business degree?
Should I limit my services?
Will I not be taken seriously without a diploma in photography on my wall?
What should I include in my portfolio?
Do you have advise on how I might individualize my business, or do you think trying to stand out is wrong?

ANY advise you have will be taken very seriously, provided it's intented that way.

Thanks in advance,

If you're searching for a job in UK, well, I can advise you to look at
ClickAJob.co.uk. When I needed a job, this site was really helpful.

What I really liked is a possibility to search vacancies from lots of
job boards at one place.
It's very fast and efficient. There is one feature that impressed me
greatly - you can search jobs by location entering a UK city or
postcode into the location field.

The site address is http://www.clickajob.co.uk.

Hey guys. I'm Jerry...with a J.

I'm in a situation where there's alot that I'm thinking I might want to do but don't actually know how or what my options might be.
Example:lately I've been thinking about getting a welding ticket or saving up money and becoming a welding journeyman and moving to Alberta where they pay $40hr. I've never been motivated by money, but I'm 30yrs old now with no more to show for it than when I was 20yrs old, so I'm reading to aspire. To move up.

Is anyone in the same boat?
I'm in Canada-does anyone know of a career counsillor or if this type of advise giver exists and where I might track said advise giver down? Is there a fee?

Thank you.
