9781841120447: The Career Adventurer's Fieldbook: Your Guide to Career Success

The idea of a career has changed forever. Our parents might have expected to work for three different employers in their working lives. We can expect to work for at least ten. Or only one. Ourselves.But as free agency and career-hopping have become the norm, career advice has stayed static, rooted in ideas of the 'perfect' career and company loyalty. Until now.The Career Adventurer's Instant Calmer will become the career advice first choice for a generation. It offers a complete self-managed process for understanding your life goals, your material and spiritual needs and your strengths as a person and worker. Instead of offering a single career solution, the book presents the reader with a journey, an adventure, where career and life become intertwined.

Summary:

The Career Adventurer's Fieldbook is the first career guide for the 21st Century. It offers a complete self-managed process for understanding your life goals, your material and spiritual needs and your strengths as a person and worker. Instead of offering a single career solution, the book presents the reader with a journey, an adventure, where career and life become intertwined.

Key skills:

Well-written and assiduously researched including interviews with dozens of real life career adventurers – among them a New York City belly dancer, a pet psychologist and a chief fun officer. The Career Adventurer’s Fieldbook tells it like it really is, cutting through the corporate clutter. From networking your way to your perfect job to managing office politics, it is jammed full of tips, advice, and information from experts and fellow adventurers on how to get the best out of your career journey.

Three year vocational course at the School of Hard Knocks, followed by a degree in Office Politics (with a distinction in Water Cooler Diplomacy) at the University of Life.

Career History:

No. Careers should be about the future, whatever your age, qualification or experience. In a UK survey in 2001, 40 percent of respondents said they would change their career tomorrow given the chance. The Career Adventurer’s Fieldbook aims to show them how.

Between them the book’s authors have pursued a number of intriguing jobs, including pig farm labourer, tree surgeon, timeshare salesman and golf caddie, in their own personal pursuit of a vocational Valhalla. And who’s to say they’ve finished?

Qualifications:

None at all - why shouldn’t you want to go in search of the perfect job?

Interests:

Dragging careers advice into the 21st Century, Mapping unchartered territories, Helping people fulfil their potential, Reading

References:

Marketing guru Philip Kotler: "Fewer managers will spend their whole career within one company. Managers will be more attached to their knowledge specialty than to their current company. There will be active markets for each knowledge specialty, and managers will be on the lookout for advancement opportunities. The key then is for tomorrow’s managers to study the various knowledge specialties and choose the one that will yield the most market value in the long run. The company itself will need to develop better inducement packages for retaining their most valued knowledge workers."
