Spare yourself the ordeal of researching the hundreds of books out there on career guidance. Ken Lawson¿s KISS GUIDE TO MANAGING YOUR CAREER is the most comprehensive, beautifully written and visually appealing work on the subject you¿ll ever need (and I speak with authority: I¿m a 40-something professional with over 20 years of experience in changing jobs and reading books about it). Lawson helps you think seriously about yourself (¿What moves you?¿), how to take charge of your career, plan and implement your job search, and how to keep networking (¿the most important career management activity you can pursue¿) for continued career vitality. He¿s also provided excellent Appendices, including ¿Good Books¿ that go into greater depth about resumes, interviewing, recruiters, freelancing and consulting, networking, on-line job sites, negotiating, starting a business, office politics and more. In short, the KISS GUIDE TO MANAGING YOUR CAREER is simply terrific.
