Jeff Layton: As anyone who knows who's been trying to change careers or they're currently out of work, it can be a moment where you're very frustrated; you might be very anxious. It's difficult, emotionally. Do you have any advice for someone out there who might be in that situation right now? Valerie Sutton: Absolutely, I would look for a support network, and the type of network you want is really a developmental network, so you're looking at creating sort of a team of people that can support you in this process.
So you want to look for people that really have the expertise on the career side of things that can help coach you sort of how do you do your resume, where the job opportunities might be in that very career, specific information you need. And then you need to look for people that are going provide you with that social support. So when you're really down, that person that picks you up and says you know, hey, its okay; you're going to do this. Just keep moving forward and keep with it. So that very supportive friend or family member is important.
Jeff: Valerie this has been fun having this conversation. Valerie: It was my pleasure, Jeff. Jeff Layton: Thank you for watching us and thank you for all of your feedback. We'll see you next time.
