Seven Steps to a Rewarding Transitional Career - Getting Work in a Tough Economy
This tough job market has evolved from the current global financial sector melt down and the resulting economic restructuring, and is likely to continue for a number of years.
To thrive in it, one must first recognize that on-going career transitions will be more prevalent. Having a solid understanding of what you have to offer and how and where to market your services will give you a decided advantage in the increasingly competitive race for work opportunities. Managing the transition process from one engagement to another becomes a significant effort in itself.
A Transitional Career, as used in this book, refers to a work-life cycle incorporating a series of job engagements, which may be part-time or full-time. Job engagements may last for hours, days, weeks or months and may be consecutive or concurrent.
Pursuing a Transitional Career requires a different perspective on searching for a job engagement than the more traditional approach of seeking a long term job commitment. As you will see in "Seven Steps,” seeking new job engagements is a continuous effort. I wrote this workbook as a guide, taking the role of a personal coach to you, the reader.
A Transitional Career can be very rewarding. This work-life cycle alternative has attracted management consultants, independent contractors and other professional service providers for decades. The "Seven Steps” workbook has been designed to help people who are:
● In job transition and want to find work
● Working but are concerned about their future
● Interested in exploring consulting or contracting
● Retired but need additional income
● Entering the work place for the first time
