Welcome to my website about building a solid career. Come sit with me awhile and chat. I think you will enjoy and benefit from the discussion offered here. Helping to raise the next generation of deeply knowledgeable, creative, and productive people is a great concern of mine. After 35 years, I am still enjoying a career as a senior research engineer, working at the doctoral level in industry. In this website are my personal opinions on how you too can build a successful career. You will also find the personal opinions of other authors.

You can achieve considerable success in your career. It is possible to overcome what most people call discrimination, accidents of birth, and late blooming as you continue down the path you prefer. But, you will find that it is not something to be done casually. There are no get-rich-quick schemes, no 90-day wonders, and no labor-free approaches to a successful career. If you want success, you have to reach for it. That reaching takes time and effort: a continuous cycle of studying, learning, working, and producing. In this personal enterprise, you will find great joy and solid employment opportunities.

Avail yourself of the material on this website. Consider my personal opinions, and those of the other authors you will encounter here. Then take responsibility for yourself and proceed. Success is within your reach.

During February 2011, I answered
an invitation to give a series
of talks on professional and
career development in
Zimbabwe Africa.
See related photos and talks.

In 2012 and 2013 the work in
Zimbabwe resulted in a 3-DVD
Career Discovery Toolkit. This
toolkit was modified slightly for
inclusion on this website.
