    Speaker

    Patti Wilson (bio), Founder, The Career Company

    Working at the job of your dreams does not guarantee career happiness nor job satisfaction. Often times our biggest disappointments and unhappiness occur when we are working in the right job but in the wrong niche.

    In the work-world, we contribute our talent and ability within the context of different niches such as a specialized knowledge, a specific industry, an organizational type. In a turbulent global economy, business reorganizations, downsizing, mergers and acquisitions cause entire industries and companies to disappear and dissolve. We are challenged to recreate our niche in new areas, geographic locations and business sectors.

    Find out how to diagnose and define your current niche, identify new niches and choose career options and jobs that fit new niches. Improve the likelihood of career success by finding options that supports your success and satisfaction. Embark on a job search knowing what the "right" niche.
