Beat the Odds. Career Buoyancy Tactics for Today's Turbulent Job Market.
Yate, Martin
This book offers a blueprint to achieve and maintain career buoyancy in the face of downsizing, outsourcing, restructuring, and other present and future job-loss situations. The book provides advice on establishing a solid job base with a professional core career in a healthy, growing industry; making use of that care career as a foundation to build a thriving entrepreneurial career; and always keeping a dream career in sight. Part 1: "The Core Career," looks at these topics: the end of corporate loyalty; old theories about work and careers; a blueprint for success in the new world of work; why layoffs will continue and what to do about it; emerging job opportunities; successful core career behaviors; and career management techniques. Part 2: "The Dream Career," examines the relationship between buoyancy and career dreams and provides dream career blueprints. Part 3: "The Entrepreneurial Career," considers the characteristics of the new entrepreneurs and how to start a business enterprise. Part 4: "Beating the Odds," explains how to design a personal work-life buoyancy plan. Three appendixes contain information on the education options for staying abreast of change, when a layoff can pay off, and legal work-for-hire and nondisclosure agreements. Contains a list of 146 resources also available. (KC)
