I am always happy to be invited to contribute to valuable career advice projects, and Chris Perry of Career Rocketeer has put together a terrific compilation of advice for job seekers. LaunchPad — Getting a Life and Not a Job is available for sale now. My article is about the value of telling stories for job seeking. I reference my favorite book on the subject by Katharine Hanson, Tell Me About Yourself as well as my friend Ken Revenaugh’s blog, FastTrackTools.com, which offers terrific advice about communicating to enhance your status in any organization.
This issue has great advice about how to create or find meaningful work (by Julie Jansen), describes why personal branding is good for you (by Diana Jennings) and provides interview advice for return-to workers (by Carol Fishman Cohen), just to name a few. Read on to learn more about the project and consider ordering a copy!
