Unfortunately, unemployment is on the rise—leaving many people anxious about how to recreate themselves and renew their careers after being fired. This fresh, funny, and smart guide will be their life saver, providing them with the information they need to thrive even in this tight economic environment. It will help jobseekers and prospective entrepreneurs figure out what they really want to do next, understand the changing job market, and find work in growth areas such as green technology. There’s also advice on retraining, freelancing and independent contracting, and Internet marketing options, as well as a chapter devoted specifically to women.

 Personal interviews with workers who changed their lives after getting laid off—and who are now doing what they love—offer additional inspiration.
