Financial Survival between Jobs. Pocket Job Series No. 6.
Lindgren, Amy
This book is the sixth in a series of six pocket-sized books written for career changers and laid-off workers. Each book is written at a 7th- to 10th-grade reading level and contains examples, hands-on self-discovery exercises, and step-by-step advice for a successful job search. This book provides information on financial survival between jobs--budgeting, dealing with creditors, making money quickly, and keeping an upbeat attitude. Chapter 1 offers suggestions for dealing with job loss. Chapter 2 on risk explores assessing one's risk, calculating net worth and current ratio, and lifestyle versus peace of mind. Chapter 3 considers an unemployment timeline, troubleshooting, and making a budget. Chapter 4 describes a strategy for survival that includes reducing expenses, increasing income, and substitutes for medical insurance. Ten financial mistakes common to job seekers are listed. Chapter 5 discusses safeguards for the future--budgeting for the new job, setting lifetime financial goals, savings, and recognizing the danger signs of financial trouble. Chapter 6 offers suggestions for less expensive alternatives for vacations and travel, holidays and gift-giving, and entertaining. Other contents include a list of 7 national resource organizations for print resources and advice, a list of 10 helpful books for job seekers, and an index. (YLB)
