Career Comeback helps you create a powerful plan to get back on top

The author of the national bestseller JobSmarts for TwentySomethings, Bradley Richardson is one of America’s top career experts. But he also knows what it is like to experience a career setback. When an entrepreneurial effort failed and he was forced to become a job seeker himself, Richardson discovered firsthand the emotional, social, and financial stress that comes with losing a job. In Career Comeback, Richardson shares his years of expertise along with the hard lessons he learned in the trenches to give readers a realistic action plan for taking control of their careers—and their lives.

With empathy and humor, Richardson takes readers step by step through the challenging process of breathing life back into a languishing livelihood. Inside, readers will get indispensable, nuts-and-bolts advice on how to:

•Find solid ground
•Identify where things went wrong
•Establish a support system and stay energized
•Discover what matters most
•Find a new job that’s even better than the last
•Get in stride and stay on track

Job security is a thing of the past, but with Career Comeback readers learn how to rediscover their personal best.
