Quick Prep Careers: Good Jobs in 1 Year or Lessby Paul Phifer
Whether you are looking for a new direction after years of work, just entering the work force, or being down-sized, laid off, or reassigned somewhere you don't want to go--Quick Prep Careers will give you a chance to try something new/i>
What is a "good" job? One that suits you at the time you need it. Not everyone has the time for a lengthy degree program!
Whether you are looking for a new direction after years of work, just entering the work force, or being down-sized, laid off, or reassigned somewhere you don't want to go--Quick Prep Careers will give you a chance to try something new without committing to years of training.
Always loved to make dinner for friends? Dreamed of seeing the world? Never happier than when you have a wrench in your hand? You could have a successful career as a Cook, a Travel Agent, or an Auto Body Repairer. Use the book's "Self-Assessment Survey" to analyze your own values, goals, strengths, weaknesses, and other aspects of your personality-so you can decide what jobs are right for you.
Then look at the fifty jobs profiled inside-each requiring little or no training before you're hired and short term, on-the-job training when you start-and the twenty-five additional jobs that require certification programs of one year or less. Find out: how to get just the job you need at this time in your life, what personal qualities employers will be looking for, what training you'll need to do the job-and how to get it, how the job can benefit you and your career plans, how the job benefits other people-its importance and value, what (if any) are the job's down sides-so you'll have a balanced view to make an informed decision, what salary range you can expect, and where to get more information about the job.
For anyone who wants to make a job change now, Quick Prep Careers is the ideal guidebook!
