Cool Careers For Dummies

( 2 )

Overview

Sure, some people enter preschool knowing what they want to be when they grow up. But most of us aren't so lucky, and we don't get much help. Some parents say things like, "It's your life, you decide." Other parents go to the other extreme, expecting you to follow in their footsteps. In high school, you take a career test, but many high school students laugh at their test results: the utterly useless, "You could pursue a wide range of careers."

Overview

Sure, some people enter preschool knowing what they want to be when they grow up. But most of us aren't so lucky, and we don't get much help. Some parents say things like, "It's your life, you decide." Other parents go to the other extreme, expecting you to follow in their footsteps. In high school, you take a career test, but many high school students laugh at their test results: the utterly useless, "You could pursue a wide range of careers."

This revised edition of Cool Careers For Dummies provides insight into landing a job for anyone who doesn't know where to look, doesn't have time to look, or doesn't want to suffer through a long back-to-school stint. It's designed for people of all walks of life to uncover rewarding, viable careers or get in on the ground floor of the next Big Things. What's more, this guide even offers tips to make even a humdrum job much better.

Clearly organized by specific topic areas, you can easily find the topics that appeal to you. You'll uncover information like

  • Finding the right career for you, whether you've never had a career before or want to dump your old career for a new and improved one
  • Getting smart about choosing, and making the most of, a career
  • Landing the job you want even if the thought of networking gives you the creeps and you don't have a 500-name Rolodex
  • Customizing your career to make any job better by tailoring it to your strengths and using wise approaches to your boss and co-workers

And, you'll find a fast yet substantive introduction to more than 500 good careers, including many unlikely suspects!

Despite taking career tests, plowing through fat career guides, and spending hours of reflecting, many people end up falling into their careers more by chance than by choice. Not a good way to ensure career happiness. There is a better way. Read all about it, in Cool Careers For Dummies.
