Many of the names in the bylines of career advice articles have become familiar; which can be good or bad, depending on the author. A couple I immediately reject because they never offer new insight. New people enter the job search and career enhancement realms all the time so some repetition is needed, but simply rehashing old memes is lame from someone whose job is to provide fresh insight. Nevertheless, I still found some good articles. LinkedIn profile advice is abundant, so I included a couple useful pieces. High-Paying Jobs You Can Get with an Associate Degree, by Jon Simmon, is an example of a unique and useful subject since there are a lot of people who either cannot afford the time and money needed to earn a Bachelors degree, or simply do not want the sort of job where a higher degree is required. For a lot of jobs, being labeled a "professional" is just a way to have yourself exempted from labor laws that guarantee you get paid for overtime. A few example are aerospace engineering and operations technician, air traffic controller, nuclear technician, and telecom technician.
