Align those talents with your dream job and you will stand out from the crowd.

I love what you said about aligning our dream job with our talents. That is exactly what my husband and I need to do. We have been trying to discover our career paths for a long time. I found a book that has a lot of helpful information to. It's called The Job Coach for Young Professionals. Use this book before you start looking for a job. I wasted too much time in the beginning.
