What Type of Job Will You Search For Next?

I'm Asking: What Type of Job Will You Search For Next?

You guys shocked me when nearly 90 percent of you said you'd be looking for a new job when the economy recovers. That means you're either unhappy with your company, hoping to change the direction of your career, or looking for some other kind of upgrade. Are you planning on staying in the same line of work when you search for your next job, or will you pursue a different path?

I plan on doing an OJT program so I can get promoted and earn more money doing work in the same field I'm currently in.

I'm actually headed to grad school in the fall. So I'm leaving my job... its bittersweet.. love what I do.. just can't stand the people I work with. Once I'm done with grad school I intend to stay in the same field... but I'll definitely be earning more and will likely be my own boss.

I was one of those lucky ones...found a job in the midst of the economic spiral. I love my job.... moving up!

Same industry (entertainment), different field and perhaps even a different company.

I'm looking for something similar to my old job (fashion industry junky) with just more work involved also I'm planning to back to school to become an Art Teacher. So I wouldn't mind working in a daycare or adult teaching.
