Overview

American companies are experiencing a fundamental change. Massive layoffs, plant closings, cost cutting, and benefit slashing have created a climate of fear. From CEOs to middle managers to salespeople to factory workers to order-entry processors, employees at every level wonder, What will happen to my job? Do I have any security? Where have all the old rules gone? Job Shock describes the brave new world of work - a full-scale revolution that is changing the American economy from top to bottom. The early symptoms of this revolution maybe unsettling, but the future is overwhelmingly positive: a world where technologies empower the individual worker, bringing exciting opportunities and creativity to every career and destroying the rigid corporate structure that has ruled for more than a century. In this book, economic forecaster and best-selling author Harry Dent offers bold predictions about the next ten years and sound advice on how you can prepare.

From the author of The Great Boom Ahead comes the latest prediction of jobs in the '90s. Dent describes the brave new world of work--a world where technologies empower the individual and bring exciting opportunities. His predictions are supplemented by tools for individual success.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Cahners\\Publishers_Weekly
Dent (The Great Boom Ahead) maintains, "It won't be long before you... find something important missing from your career. Your job may vanish, or maybe your company will go AWOL." Using 50-year economic forecasts, the author delineates his controversial theories: the economic future is positive and predictable; information technologies will revolutionize businesses, creating teams, entrepreneurs and home-based specialists and generalists; and revamped companies free from bureaucracies and organized around customer needs will emerge. While well crafted, Dent's untempered optimism is debatable. Despite a carload of useful suggestions to prepare the go-getter for the future job market, he evades the issue of how a changing economy will impact on individuals working at low-level service or manufacturing jobs, or on those lacking language or computer skills.
