For many job hunters, it's a challenge in this tough economy to find any job, let alone the right job. You're overqualified or underqualified, you have too much experience or not enough experience, or you make too much money, or any one of a number of other reasons it's so difficult to get a job.
If you're one of those job seekers it's important to consider action and adapting your career to this "new" economy. For some that may mean a career in an entirely different field. For others it may mean changing the way you think about your career path and modifying it accordingly.
For still others, moving down the career ladder, instead of up it, is an option worth considering. I know many people who have decided to opt out of a fast track career for a job that's less stressful or for a job that's more fun - and they're much happier than when they worked in the corporate world.
Here's timely and solid advice from About.com's career experts on what you can do to adapt your career in a touch economy including options for changing careers, shifting your career path, downsizing your career, and protecting the job you already have.
