about this book

“A must-read for those seeking growth and satisfaction in their careers.”
--Dr. Myra Hart, Professor of Management Practice, Harvard Business School

Job security used to mean counting on a company to support you until retirement. Well, the rules have changed—companies downsize, jobs are outsourced, and pensions are eliminated as fast as the fluctuating economy. There’s good news, however—the new job security is alive and well and centered in you, not in a company.

In this newly revised edition of The New Job Security, executive career-management consultant Pam Lassiter presents the five best strategies for achieving work security and success, from building a supportive network that returns your calls to creating new jobs rather than wasting time on advertised openings. Thoroughly updated with the latest tactics, technology, and trends, plus advice from nationwide business leaders and career experts, this is the career book for the new economy.

The New Job Security will help you to:
• Uncover interesting alternative jobs
• Generate multiple income streams
• Shape your job so that it reflects your values and goals
• Move successfully within your company
• Plan for career transitions so that they’re under your control

Filled with practical exercises, real-life examples, online resources, and a refreshingly no-nonsense approach, The New Job Security is a strategic plan to gain control of your career and never worry about job stability again.
