9780944350454: Life-Work: A Career Guide for Idealists

Bill Charland, career counselor and employment training consultant, shows how to find meaningful work today by asking the right question-and listening carefully for the answers. The author of The Idiot's Guide to Changing Careers (Macmillan, 1998) takes a deeper look here at work-its history, meaning, and current trends. Drawing on his experience, as well as writings from biblical texts, Quaker, and other religious and literary works, he shares stories of those who have found personal satisfaction in their work and offers practical guidance for the search.
