Be the Captain of Your Career: A New Approach to Career Planning and Advancement by Jack Molisani

Drawing from his own experience with corporations both large and small and as a business owner, Jack Molisani has seen every mistake the professional (or not-so-professional) can make in today's highly competitive job market. This book provides the tools for navigating these choppy waters. Starting with how to escape a dead-end job or an overbearing boss, to advancing one's career, and finally to achieving a higher standard of living, the book is divided into sections on finding new directions, making things happen, and optimizing the results. While most business guides focus on either job hunting for the unemployed or getting rich for business owners and CEOs, these solutions—including how to get and ace an interview and how to increase job security once hired—cater to real people wanting real advice on how to escape the chains of a recessive economy and create a long-term lifestyle that is both enjoyable and achievable.
