About a year after graduating from college, I left my theater work in New York and returned to my parents' home. There I worked in a card shop where I'd helped out since high school; but after the busy holiday season, I was informed I'd be needed only part time.

The problem really was that I didn't know what I wanted to do. My degree was in theater, which was all I was trained for; and quite frankly, few of those skills seemed to apply to the business settings I was encountering. I had been reading several books on career changes and goal setting, but nothing was coming together for me. My mother had suggested I go through a temporary agency to sample several types of jobs and see what might interest me. I hesitated to do that; as I would tell her, "What will I be able to put on an application? That I can type thirty-two words per minute?"
