Dear Kate & Dale: I am discouraged and floundering. I've had a number of interviews but cannot say any of the opportunities are my dream job. I am in, and am prepared to stay in, the fashion industry (and do not consider this a bad thing). I probably need advice from others in the industry if I am ever going to find the right situation, but I am not in a business that is friendly. Despite Kate's theory that "people are generally willing to help you," that doesn't often apply in the fashion business. – June

Dear Kate & Dale: How can my husband salvage his career? He was a college soccer coach who was released when his assistant coach made recruiting violations. He and the school agreed to state that he was leaving to "pursue another position."
