Survivability: Career Strategies for the New World of WorkAuthor:
Janis Foord Kirk
Who'll do the work in a world without jobs? Why do some people thrive in exciting new careers while others struggle to find work of any kind? Who's in charge during a revolution?
As the industrial world veers into a new millennium, workers at every level are anxious, even frightened, by the unprecedented changes affecting the career landscape. At the same time, despite the extreme difficulties of their circumstances, few appreciate the revolutionary implications of the transformation that is underway.
Survivability™ is a carefully cultivated blend of attitude, skills and learning. In an age when the old employment 'contract' has broken down, and new rules are still being written, a much more strategic understanding of the workplace is essential.
Survivability: Career Strategies for the New World of Work provides the tools people need to address their concerns about work, career direction and security. Throughout, the emphasis is on people; the difficulties they face, the losses they have sustained, the triumphs they have achieved. The changing world of work. Why it's changing, how it's changing, and what you can do to prepare.
