Description

THE DAYS OF LIFETIME EMPLOYMENT ARE LONG GONE, BUT A NEW PARADIGM CAN SOW HOPE IN THE HEARTS OF MILLIONS OF JOB SEEKERS. This book sheds light on that new paradigm. In 2013, management theorist Andrew McAfee gave a brilliant TED talk about what future jobs will look like, expounding the skills, mindset and verve that workers need to be productive in the long term. This book goes further and proposes a job-search blueprint that the unemployed, and active workers thinking about career moves, can use to get back to work or blaze new professional trails. It also deploys a lexicon of smart networking and effective interviewing, sketching out a clear professional vision that rewards boldness, preparation and intellectual brilliance. The book contains a helpful Discussion Guide. Through thought-provoking questions, the book gives extensive advice on how to use the discussion guide, how to inform decisions related to the topics at hand, and how to best read it - alone, in reading groups, with your partner, or as part of learning activities, among others. After reading this book, you will understand: How to suitably use your time when you don't work; How to engineer a successful professional-networking strategy; Why an atypical resume yields more interviews; How to take charge of an interview using authenticity, relevance, scarcity and audacity; and Why you need T.A.L.E.N.T. to find work, keep it and be promoted. Who will benefit from this book? People looking for work; Students and recent graduates; Professionals contemplating a career shift; U.S. Department of Labor experts; Policymakers at state and local employment offices; HR managers and headhunters; Personnel in career services at colleges and universities; and Labor economists and thought leaders in employment dynamics.show more

About Karma Peters

I wish to remain anonymous because the ideas I convey in my books are far more momentous than my humble person. Consider me nonexistent - a myth, a modicum of human folklore, a thinking iota in our collective wisdom. Just delve into my books, learn a thing or two...and, if you like the content, try to improve your life (and others' lives). I don't aim to be a personal-growth guru, a healer, a celebrated self-help pundit, an attention-hungry author. In our publicity-obsessed culture, we don't need another such figure. I see life through the lens of passion and compassion; promise and compromise; happiness; and unwearied altruism, the kind you project when you stare at a newborn and know right away that only you can help him or her fulfill the untapped, God-given potential each of us has. We have that inner passion - so why not use it, enhance it, modify it, channel it while we are here on Earth? As an author, philosopher and life coach, I write books that inspire, motivate and teach you how to reconnect with your inner energy and ignite your outer potential. In an earlier life, I learned the ropes of financial management, organizational effectiveness, strategy, marketing and investment banking, first earning an MBA in Finance at Rutgers University and then working in various roles in the financial-services industry in New York and New Jersey. These positions ultimately enabled me to see how infinite goodness manifests itself in humans, producing pure bliss in unexpected moments and places - and how, unfortunately, sometimes our worst angels lead us to blaze unfortunate and troublesome paths for ourselves and others. These days, I wake up each morning to the sweet, hopeful music of life, and sleep to the adorable, buoyant melody of tomorrow - living one day at the time, enjoying simple moments, appreciating the chance to exist, and feeling grateful for the serendipity of human love.show more
