Feeling connected on the job hunt

THANKS to the prevalence of today's technology, everyone has access to an unprecedented degree of connection to others. But for those just entering the job market—those belonging to Generation Y, who have lived in this tech-savvy, hyperconnected universe—a job search in today's economic environment can bring about surprising feelings of isolation. As part of this generation myself, I've been there. But I'm learning that there is a way to navigate this search from a spiritual standpoint that encourages a deeper perspective of employment, and that sheds new light on what connectedness is really all about.

I've found that rewarding employment occurs through actively expressing spiritual qualities. I realized there was a larger Love from which I was never detached.
