Hire me? Fire me! Hired myself is a book for people interested in jobs and how to procure, secure and manage them for most benefit to the employer and employee. It's about the opportunities, mistakes and lessons in making the transition from being hired to being fired and bouncing back to a better and more satisfying job, sometimes achieved by working for others, sometimes as a self employed contractor or starting your own business. This is a collection of experiences and insights from 16 people across different professions, countries, industries, religions and cultures. The main focus is on the US, UK and Australia, but also, for a different perspective, it includes an author from Egypt with an Islamic guide for job seekers.
