The difficulties in making such a switch are large and new graduates are seldom aware...

    This doesn't exactly apply to my situation, but it does a little bit. Or it might in the future. Some of this advice has been written before (basics of getting a job, networking, negotiating salaries). Some of it was not immediately obvious to me (your second-level connections are the most useful (because your first-level connections know all the same stuff you do)).Only one sentence made me gag: "Your brand is a feeling (remember how much weight...

    This handbook could easily become the new bible for career management as we almost certainly will be called upon to seek new employment and/or change careers during lives. Dr. Dawn offers professional, practical, and precise steps we can take to manage our career or find a new one. She offers a helpful summary at the end of each chapter and even provides scripts we can practice to give confidence when we are "live." I highly recommend this book n...

    This book is more designed for those interested in switching careers in the middle of their professional life as opposed to retooling for a different career in retirement. It gets a bit redundant in places, but there are some helpful hints about redrafting resumes, interviewing, and negotiating the offer.
