Since the current recession began in December 2007, the American economy has lost a staggering total of 6.5 million jobs. The unemployment rate is hovering near 10% for the first time in over a quarter-century. And still, each month, several hundred-thousand more people are losing their jobs. It seems as if words like "hope" and "opportunity" have gone the way of our economy.
For many people, the very idea of unemployment (not to mention the reality of it) is a life-changing trauma at the top of their stress list, disrupting their lives and marriages, and even attacking their sense of self-worth. For others, this unenviable circumstance might well be a blessing in disguise--marking the start of a new career path or even self-employment. It all depends on how it's handled. "Back to Work " is a short, easy-to-read book that will help you cope with the emotional and spiritual effects of job loss, from an author who has been there. Three times.
In "Back to Work " Stephen Adams speaks from experience as he helps you get from wherever you are now--to your next career. This little book is full of illustrations from Stephen's own life and the lives of other successful career remodelers.
