Most people agree there are few things worse than being stuck in a career you hate. It's not just the daily drudgery of work that has become tedious; it's also the hopeless feeling of life moving in the wrong direction and not knowing how to turn it around. Renowned career consultant Andrea Kay knows it's possible for people in such predicaments to make a change, and in this book she offers her time-tested, nine-step program to show you how.

The process begins with readers doing some soul-searching to define a career objective that's based on who they are, not what others think they should be. The author then offers a methodical plan for successfully making the shift, addressing every issue from research and training to networking and interviewing to ultimately landing that new job. Along the way, she provides helpful exercises and real-life examples of clients who have made the transition to a happier working life. Kay's personable writing style, vast knowledge, and years of experience make this life-changing book the next best thing to one-on-one sessions with one of the best career counselors in the country.

Book Description Stewart, Tabori Chang Inc, United States, 2006. Paperback. Condition: New. New. Language: English . This book usually ship within 10-15 business days and we will endeavor to dispatch orders quicker than this where possible. Brand New Book. Life can be, well, a bitch when you re in the wrong career. We re not just talking about a job in a place you don t like, but that hopeless feeling when you know that your life is moving in the wrong direction. Andrea Kay knows it s possible to make a change - and with this book she will show you how. Based on her own very successful career consultancy, Andrea has developed a 9-step program that anyone can follow. The result is a deep understanding of what you really want to do and a career path that fits who you really are. The process begins with some soul-searching, blue-skying, and what-iffing. Each step builds on the next while you create a new, concrete career objective based on who you are - not who others think you should be. Once you ve determined your path, Andrea brings things back to earth and deals with how to make the change happen - from researching the field, tackling financial concerns, getting any necessary education or training, networking, interviewing, to getting that first job.
