Overview

There's a revolution brewing in the cubicles of corporate America:

Young professionals are saying no to confining career tracks and cushy pension plans; they want to be their own boss.

Kiss Off Corporate America: Alternative Perspectives for Disenchanted Young Professionals reflects the pulse of this growing entrepreneurial movement of "post-boomers", well-educated professionals in their twenties and thirties.

This innovative, ambitious, technology-savvy generation is reevaluating the corporate system they've been groomed for and are saying "thanks, but no thanks". Give window offices, retirement gold watches, and endless weekends at the office back to the yuppies of the '80s; this generation values independence, variety, social contribution, and, most important, control over one's life.

Kiss Off Corporate America is the first book to address these changing career needs of post-boomers, providing tangible resources, motivation, and support to explore alternatives to the 9 to 5, mainstream work force.

Combining information and inspiration, the irreverent tone and layout of Kiss Off Corporate America reflects the nontraditional, noncorporate perspective of this generation. The book kicks off with an analysis of the growth of self-employed post-boomers, followed by a step-by-step blueprint process on how to bust out of a corporate environment. Case study interviews support the tangible "how-to's" with qualitative, motivating examples of the struggles and successes of others searching for a life outside the corporate track.
