Since I started this column, I’ve really enjoyed delving into the various sides of work – from my experiences as a recruiter and career coach, to that of a business owner, to overcoming challenges in the workplace, to the guest posts of various professionals in the field, to interviews I’ve done with those going through career transitions, and more. I have SO many ideas for 2014 and look forward to sharing those with you!
