Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Unfortunately, unemployment is on the rise—leaving many people anxious about how to recreate themselves and renew their careers after being fired. This fresh, funny, and smart guide will be their life saver, providing them with the information they need to thrive even in this tight economic environment. It will help jobseekers and prospective entrepreneurs figure out what they really want to do next, understand the changing job market, and find work in growth areas such as green technology. Theres also advice on retraining, freelancing and independent contracting, and Internet marketing options, as well as a chapter devoted specifically to women.

 Personal interviews with workers who changed their lives after getting laid off—and who are now doing what they love—offer additional inspiration.

Review:

"This funny and energetic guidebook for the recently (or repeatedly) fired from entrepreneur and comedian Martini and journalist Reed begins with a sympathetic but no-nonsense plan for picking yourself up after you've lost a job, and moves swiftly into the brainstorming and planning necessary to start the next — and more satisfying — career. Readers are challenged to answer the all-important question 'What are you passionate about?' and strategize from there with an eye to becoming a self-employed independent contractor. Martini and Reed investigate such potential growth markets as green industries and the Gen Y market as well as the new outcropping of nontraditional jobs for women. Advice on finding community and places to get help and a plethora of resources elevate this cheerful, encouraging book into an invaluable resource."
