More people are chasing fewer jobs than ever before, including legions of downsized executives and newly college graduates. In his book The Four Pillars of Employable Talent, David C. Miles, Ed.D., SPHR, CMF, shares how organizations have changed their recruiting processes and what talent managers are looking for in job candidates.

Dr. Miles offers readers thought-provoking analyses of the changes that have transformed the workplace as well as a compelling argument for why an individual must possess four key attributes to be employable in a challenging job market: resilience, balance, strategic career planning, and active financial planning. He concludes by exploring how each of the four generations comprising today's workforce--Seniors, Baby Boomers, Generation Xers, and Millennials--perceive and embrace each of the Four Pillars.

Dr. Miles bases much of his book on his research with transitioning executives and on his experience first as an HR executive in corporate America and then as the Chairman of Miles LeHane Cos., Inc., an independent consultancy in Northern Virginia that specializes in strategic and talent management. He offers practical advice to talent managers, new college graduates (and their mentors) as well as executives and employees in transition. He places special emphasis on being able to articulate contributive value in both resumes and interviews.

The Four Pillars of Employable Talent is an outstanding resource, loaded with handy tips and poignant anecdotes that make Dr. Miles' advice emotionally real and incredibly useful.
Tim Zilke, President and CEO of the National Institute for Automotive Service Excellence, said, "David Miles clearly maps out what has changed in today's workplace--for the employer and the employee--and what it will take to be successful at staying employed and at recruiting for success. His book is simply a must-read for talent managers, executives, and employees of all ages."
