    Top 10 Career Strategies: for the Year 2000 and Beyond

    I highly recommend Gary Grappo's Top Ten Career Strategies for the Year 2000 and Beyond. This book describes the importance of meeting technological change head-on, and offers helpful advice on how to accomplish this. The chapter on discovering the future growth industries was especially helpful; the glossary of future growth companies provided a concrete insight on potential cutting-edge employers for the upcoming century. Mr. Grappo's book offers fresh new insight on career networking, in ways other books on career advancement commonly ignore. These networking strategies outline a means of shaping a well-rounded professionalist, one who could perform in any arena of the job market. In addition to providing the reader with helpful suggestions on career networking, Mr. Grappo also offers his readers helpful advice on personal 'selling skills.' The book provides simple, easy-to-follow steps that will help to distinguish any individual from their competition, and help advance them in the career path of their choice. This book is an essential tool for the individual looking to advance and improve their career in the upcoming century.
