about

THE DAYS OF LIFETIME EMPLOYMENT ARE LONG GONE, BUT A NEW PARADIGM CAN SOW HOPE IN THE HEARTS OF MILLIONS OF JOB SEEKERS.

This book sheds light on that new paradigm.

In 2013, management theorist Andrew McAfee gave a brilliant TED talk about what future jobs will look like, expounding the skills, mindset and verve that workers need to be productive in the long term. This book goes further and proposes a job-search blueprint that the unemployed, and active workers thinking about career moves, can use to get back to work or blaze new professional trails. It also deploys a lexicon of smart networking and effective interviewing, sketching out a clear professional vision that rewards boldness, preparation and intellectual brilliance.

The book contains a helpful Discussion Guide. Through burning questions, the book gives extensive advice on how to use the discussion guide, how to inform decisions related to the topics at hand, and how to best read it – alone, in reading groups, with your partner, or as part of learning activities, among others.

After reading this book, you will understand:
* How to suitably use your time when you don’t work;
* How to engineer a successful professional-networking strategy;
* Why an atypical résumé yields more interviews;
* How to take charge of an interview using authenticity, relevance, scarcity and audacity; and
* Why you need T.A.L.E.N.T. to find work, keep it and be promoted.

Who will benefit from this book?
* People looking for work;
* Students and recent graduates;
* Professionals contemplating a career shift;
* U.S. Department of Labor experts;
* Policymakers at state and local employment offices;
* HR managers and headhunters;
* Personnel in career services at colleges and universities; and
* Labor economists and thought leaders in employment dynamics.
