September 2011 Non-Fiction Book of the Month.

Highly topical and relevant to our world today. Employment has changed so radically in the last decade with fewer of us having full-time jobs with final salary pensions, and the former assumption that if you studied hard you would get the job of your dreams no longer holds. This title will help you gain the skills, aptitude and confidence to adapt and prosper in this world of work - whatever your age or background as well as make time for time outside work.

Synopsis

Work it Out! How to Find the Work You Always Wanted in a Shifting Jobs Market by Desmond McCabe

Rather than devoting all your time to one job - often to the exclusion of other interests - Work It Out! shows you how to find and create individual pieces of work with the help of personal contacts, the internet and other resources, and use these workpieces to build a career. But this book is about far more than the process of working to earn money. It provides a template for making work fit into your life, providing an income and financial security, but also accommodating the needs of your family and relationships, and satisfying your personal ambitions. Let it guide you in creating a life that is truly fulfilling!
