Help! I'm in the wrong job! Oct 6, 2000
I wish I were ready for this book years ago! Lee and Larry start by describing the workplace and how it is changing (surprisingly accurate for being published in 1993). Next they define what work is and help us understand why so many people are in the situations they are in. Then comes the fun part...identifying your skills, interests, personality and applying them to a career that fits you. Lastly they teach you how to conduct a job search, prepare your resume and how to manage you finances.
The book is an excellent resource in itself. However, the companion workbook is a must in order to get the full benefit of the program.
