By Pam Lassiter
Fifty years ago, workers strove to move steadily up the ranks of one or two stable companies. Today’s workers jump from company to company, building contacts, expanding skill sets, and increasing salaries at each one. Job security has taken on a new meaning, referring to security within your chosen career, rather than a single company.
In this book executive career management consultant Pam Lassiter shows early- to mid-career professionals how to navigate this new work environment by mastering five key skills: waiting for the right job, taking control, reciprocal marketing, career networking, and broad-based negotiating.
If you’re looking for ways to take control of a current job, or struggling to manage the transitional period between jobs, Lassiter’s proven advice shows workers at all stages of their careers how to stay competitive and achieve their professional goals. 248 pages. 6 x 9. Softcover. 2002.
