Even if professional passion is explicitly, unequivocally and unanimously definable, questions remain: Should passion be any of these things listed? Should it be a prerequisite, expectation, concomitant or—as Alexander Pope framed it—master or slave of some (which ones?) or all jobs? When, if ever, and in what forms, is work (job or career) passion a delusion, a deception, a danger, an illusion, an encumbrance, handicap or otherwise a "mistake" and liability?

Embracing the folk-wisdom that "the squeaky wheel gets the grease", some job hunters push the pedal to the metal and try to win the job race by supercharging their job search with grandstanding, attention-grabbing, often outrageously dumb or brilliant gimmicks.We've all heard, read  or told stories about how some desperate, audacious, (over/under-) imagin

Two of life's biggest career decisions and influences involve ponds. The first is whether to choose a career path that will take you up an advancement ladder or, instead, to a lifelong generally easier-than-a-climb skate on, around and across at least one comfortably flat pond (allowing for jumps from one "steady-state" pond-based career to another equally flat one). This is the choice between "upward" career growth vs. unchanging career equilibrium in a "horizontal" job (or jobs) that doesn't change or evolve much.

>> Big Fish in a Small Pond
The main purpose of this report is to examine the history, evolution and limits of the concept and forms of economic (specifically, job and worker) productivity at a time when human productivity is on the verge of being eclipsed by autonomous artificial and alternate biological systems (such as genetically engineered waste-disposing bacteria, chimera (spliced species), cyborgs or "GMH"—genetically modified humans).

Does cold calling still work—and if so, with what sorts of approaches, tactics, enterprises and jobs? After all, a lot has changed or disappeared since the advent of the digital communications age, so it is fair and useful to ask whether cold calling has become as obsolete, weird, inefficient, risky and ineffective as a 19th-century cold-box refrigeration or primitive Cold War-era spy telecommunications.

>> Cold Calling
We have to brace ourselves for a scenario in which ever-increasing numbers of people will, before long, find themselves in post-employment circumstances without ever having actually been employed. That is what will happen if they are qualified only for jobs that are going to be entirely handed over to Advanced Robotics and Artificial Intelligence, or "ARAI," technology (especially if more conventional, less-intelligent "automation" is also conceptually tucked in under the ARAI umbrella, reframed as "Automation, Robotics and Artificial Intelligence").

>> Preparing for Survival
In addition to any vagueness about the (untested or unexamined) multiplicity of ways to bring jobs home, the challenge of thinking clearly about and succeeding is compounded by vagueness and ambiguity of some other key concepts central to bringing jobs back to America (or anywhere else, for that matter).

All of the analysis, arguments and evidence have been compiled in this report to establish that, as a minimum and contrary to the sensationalist headlines and extreme claims it has not been conclusively proved that birth order has no effect on personality, character or career. Indeed, much of the evidence suggests quite the contrary—that as countless researchers, common sense, history, cultural and sociological phenomena suggest, birth order—at least in combination with other variables—has had and continues to have effects on much more than the debate about it and the personalities of those debating it.

>> Birth Order
Personality and character have always been career glue. Job skills, innate talent, the right education, experience, great references and all of the other essentials of self-marketing in quest of a job or a promotion can be blown away like useless confetti, unless solidly cemented together by these two identity-defining elements.But anyone - especially and including millennials - who fails to cultivate and display the right (or any) personality and character may blow the job interview or the promotion, and, like beach sand, be brushed off, no matter how much the job blows them away.

Metaphorical or not, all zeitgeist memes, like that of "clockwork" and "permeability", have very concrete and vivid impacts on those whose lives illustrate, shape, are shaped by or are swept up into the zeitgeist (they and) the memes define.The zeitgeist challenge we will face for the remainder of the 21st-century is to recognize the most important of them and differentiate those we will be able to capitalize on from those we will have to cope with. those we will have to cope with.

Starkly opposed claims and positions regarding the TPP (or anything else) raise an important question: When something seems or is agreed by all to be both good and bad in some respects, how are we to decide whether to accept it or not?

Times are changing. Older professionals need to work harder than ever to get ahead. The average person is living longer and healthier thanks to science and medicine. The age of retirement is continuously being pushed forward with no promise of future social security benefits. In our current situation, workers will be making career decisions well past the age of 50.So how can older workers remain relevant and communicate their strengths and skills to recruiters and hiring managers and continue advancing within their careers? If you're feeling like your age is negatively affecting your career, this guide is for you.
