About this title


Recently let go from his work on the space shuttle program, Nick Olsen is browsing the career section of a local bookstore when a chance meeting alters his life in ways he cannot anticipate. Maggie, a retired teacher and career coach, mentors Nick in the Proteus Solution. “You must take ownership of your future by anticipating it. This means you must invest in lifelong learning, constantly develop new skills and expertise that are marketable, and always be on the lookout for new relationships and new opportunities. In fact, job seekers must transform themselves into opportunity seekers. ”
