If your future had no limitations what type of job would you love to do? What is your Passion? How would you go about getting that kind of work? Who do you need to speak to? Start with these questions when facing your next Career search, because hoping for the best wont work not with statistics like these below.

  • The average American home only earns $32,000 yearly.

Even if both you and your spouse work and only make an average of $64,000 a year that's before taxes and house and car payments. Add to that the cost of food and fuel and it quickly becomes frightening. This is where having a Pedigree or a Passion can help you create a second income. For example if your a Nurse by day, at night you can sell your expertise of geriatrics and the methods to overcome the difficulties of home care on the information circuit with books, speeches or even private services for high dollars.

  • The average American will be divorced causing a job change.

The days of two incomes guarantying a secure future are over each person needs to be able to generate an income of their own. With divorce at an all time high, it's not a consideration it's a necessity. Again start with building a Pedigree or Passion Career which tends to be the most successful way to create employment opportunities regardless of where you live or who you're married to.

  • The average job search last 3 - 6 months.

Due to the fact that it actually can take 3 - 6 months to receive your first pay check form your new employer you will need to either save 3 months salary or have good enough credit to weather the loss of a pay check for that long. Considering the fact that you may have just changed jobs within the last couple of years this alone can be a REAL challenge so pick a strategy that you can use repeatedly and don't rely on other people to be their to help you when you need it.

  • Online job search services combined are only 10% effective.

Who are you working for? The job search services are often seen as a fantastic option for job seekers. However there are 20 million people looking passively for a new job which floods the market and drowns the active job hunters. This flood causes confusion to those using the online search engines and leaves the job searcher wondering what's wrong with them. The search engines should be only a small part of your overall plan when searching for new employment. Instead consider a cross media platform, create a blog about your current job search, a Career Portfolio demonstrating your past accomplishments to show prospective employers and a business card you can use to give to new people making contacting you as easy as possible.


When it comes to your future who are you going to trust? What system has proven infallible to building your Career? Start anew by deciding to look at some new options and some new strategies that have scientifically been proven to yield a high degree of success such as; Build a Career Portfolio, Start a Blog, Create a Passion Career, Start, or Expand a Pedigree Career for Moonlight Income. The skies the limit regardless of the economic statistics it's up to you.
