Previous weekly website lists can be found here.

Change sometimes can be a very good thing, especially these days.  This week’s theme is about career change.  Administrative Assistants have a variety of skills that can be transferred to another career.  I’ve actually thought about being a professional organizer lately.  These sites may help to satisfy your curiosity and get you started down another road.

The first step is to answer some questions and evaluate what change will mean.

Maybe the career change isn’t just for economic reasons, but as you look for work you realize that your current job doesn’t ‘fit’ anymore.  Find one that fits your personality better.

If you can stay optimistic and want to build your own business, read about entrepreneurship.  (*This is the Mind Tools website.  I get the newsletter and have the iPhone app from them.  It is a wonderful resource, set up a personal toolkit and explore on the site.)

Then you’ll need advice on how to write a resume for a career change.

If you’d like to look at information, courses, assessments, and tips just for women making career changes, try here.

Finally, there is a set of Field Guides to New Careers available in a series at amazon.

This week’s meditation

That’s it for this week. See what you like here. I’d love to hear from you about it. This week’s list is on a subject that I really think people can contribute to. Remember you can submit a website for the Sunday Readings on my How-To/Forum page.
