In today's economy few professionals can afford to start over. Many of them need to switch careers quickly and conveniently without returning to school, experiencing a pay cut, or investing in extensive work training. This new book, written by one of America's leading occupational experts, teaches people how to do just that.
Author Laurence Shatkin, Ph.D., transforms the way readers approach their career change, teaching them to redirect their path based on what they already know rather than start from scratch. He explains nine routes readers can take to redefine their career; management, teaching, advocacy, standards-enforcement, communications, sales, brokerage, analytical, and recruitment.
To help readers pinpoint which of these routes is right for them, Shatkin provides details about each route's related skill requirements, personal traits, work environment, and more. He also describes jobs in each of these routes, offering information about earnings, projected growth, and additional coursework or training that may be necessary to work in the occupation. Readers are given job-hunting guidance specific to Shatkin's "reroute" strategy and will learn how to take advantage of their existing network and channels of communication to redefine their future in the world of work.
