Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The working world of the twenty-first century can be a daunting place. With the glacial pace of unemployment decline, people cling to the jobs they have, not taking full advantage of the benefits of job transition. Courage in the Twenty-First Century is centered around the art of moving forward both in professional and personal life. Author, Joan Marques offers a strategy for self-renewal to divulge the virtues and viewpoints to successfully move from one career to another. Using the seven step system of: choice, open-mindedness, usefulness, reality, attitude, genius, and education, Marques ushers readers through the process of transitioning from one career to another in a time of employment uncertainty.
