Q: What if you're lucky enough to have a job but are feeling like you're at a dead end? How do you create new opportunities?
A: Same thing. You go out talking and doing informational interviewing at places that look the most interesting to you. I know a woman who used to go out on informational interviews every Friday on her lunch hour. She would make a list of companies to target from the yellow pages on Thursday night. She would walk in and say, "I would like to talk to someone who really knows what it's like to work here." No one has a manual for that. They will probably need to talk to you to answer that.
