|Reading career profiles of employees and entrepreneurs is a good way to explore vocations, especially if the person describing their work is willing to be candid about both the good and the bad things about their chosen path. If you are researching different fields and choices as part of a decision-making process to choose a new type of work, some questions to ask yourself when reading these interviews are:
I love talking to people about their work lives, so this page will feature the stories of people who love how they make a living.
In addition to the career profiles above, I also wrote two series of articles that included career profiles:
1. I conducted a series of interviews with reluctant entrepreneurs who started successful companies after failed job searches. See Career Profiles of Reluctant Entrepreneurs.
2. For my “Ask A Career Coach” column, I responded to a reader who inquired about franchise ownership. I interviewed and profiled 11 happy franchise owners.
