Description - How to Change Your Career and Do the Work You Really Love by L. Rigdon
According to a USA Today poll of over 1,000 working Americans, less than 10 percent of all employees feel that they are prestigious in the jobs they perform. As many as 60 percent of all employees will freely admit they wish they had another job. Few people are happy with their lots in life and yet many of them do not know how to fix the problem. They do not know how to start searching for the perfect job or how to put themselves in the position they always dreamed of. There are many steps involved in quitting and finding a new job. You must know what you want from your career, be able to track it down, and have the resources to do so. This book will provide you with the information you need to do all three things. You will be shown the right mindset to start and succeed in discovering what it is that would make you truly happy in life. You will learn how to block out everything in your life and pinpoint what it is you have always wanted to do. A guide of popular careers and their related fields is provided to help you discern where you went wrong in your career, as well as pointed advice on how to methodically start thinking about the right career.
Instead of quitting and being left in the cold, you will be shown how to start saving money and preparing the right resources to get a new job. Instead of toiling over your job, you will learn what to look for in a career and how to outline how much money you really need to make in order to survive. You will be provided the top job hunting resources in the country, along with a complete list for how to weed out bad jobs, with code words and tell tale signs revealed that will help you ignore bad job listings. A special chapter is included to help you create the winning resume package, including a top notch resume, cover letter, and all the fresh information you need if it has been years since the last time you looked for a job. Finally, you will learn how you can start working towards turning your life's passions into a viable career. You will learn how to decide if what you love is viable as a business and how to start working for yourself. You will learn the most common mistakes people make when they try to strike out on their own and how you can avoid becoming just another sad story.
With a plethora of interviews and conversations with real world professionals who have managed to chuck their job and start living and working the lives they have always wanted, you will learn the ins and outs of finding a career that will make you truly happy, while maintaining your current quality of life.
