Inhaltsangabe: Sure, some people enter preschool knowing what they want to be when they grow up. But most of us aren't so lucky, and we don't get much help. Some parents say things like, "It's your life, you decide." Other parents go to the other extreme, expecting you to follow in their footsteps. In high school, you take a career test, but many high school students laugh at their test results: the utterly useless, "You could pursue a wide range of careers."
This revised edition of Cool Careers For Dummies provides insight into landing a job for anyone who doesn't know where to look, doesn't have time to look, or doesn't want to suffer through a long back-to-school stint. It's designed for people of all walks of life to uncover rewarding, viable careers or get in on the ground floor of the next Big Things. What's more, this guide even offers tips to make even a humdrum job much better.
Clearly organized by specific topic areas, you can easily find the topics that appeal to you. You'll uncover information like
And, you'll find a fast yet substantive introduction to more than 500 good careers, including many unlikely suspects!
Despite taking career tests, plowing through fat career guides, and spending hours of reflecting, many people end up falling into their careers more by chance than by choice. Not a good way to ensure career happiness. There is a better way. Read all about it, in Cool Careers For Dummies.
Rezension: Looking for a job? Thinking about a career change? Dreading it? Well, Cool Careers for Dummies promises not only to help you find jobs you never knew existed, but to make it fun! From enologist (that's winemaker, dummy) to attorney specializing in outer-space issues, career specialists Marty Nemko and Paul and Sarah Edwards have compiled over 500 interesting, offbeat, and just plain cool jobs. But that's just the first step.
After the short descriptions of cool careers--thoughtfully separated in their own yellow-pages section--the authors present a smart, funny, well-organized guide to choosing and nabbing the perfect job, even jobs that don't make the "cool" list. Filled with practical advice such as using e-mail to reach potential employers (it's more likely to get answered), Cool Careers for Dummies is a sure cure for the interview jitters. Important tips and pitfalls are highlighted with bold icons, making this useful as a handy reference as well as a career guide.
Sections on résumés, interviews, and salary negotiation round out the package, making this the perfect companion for the first-time job hunter or the seasoned professional looking for a change--after all, you don't have to be a dummy to need a little help. A word of warning: if you think you're satisfied with your career, be careful with this book--you might find yourself longing to be a newborn photographer or a dating coach! --Rob Lightner
