Finding Work When There Are No Jobs Paperback – February 1, 2013
|New from||Used from|
“What Roger Wright has done with Finding Work is exactly what the doctor ordered. He takes us on a quest to find what WE should be doing in this world, and along the way torpedoes the myth that there are common levers we can all pull and 1-2-3 we find our life’s work. This is no one-size-fits-all formula. This is wisdom that works!”
--Bob Beaudine, author of The Power of WHO
“I get tired of ‘how to find a job’ books. Same old stuff over and over again. Until now… Roger Wright is one of the most insightful and creative thought leaders of our time. This book is a breath of fresh air!”
--Curt W. Coffman, Co-Author of First Break all the Rules: What the World’s Greatest Managers Do Differently
“What if everyone found productive work that wakes them every morning with anticipation for what the day holds? I've found mine and I believe Roger Wright’s Finding Work When there Are No Jobs will help you find yours. Whether you’re a job seeker or an employer, read this book and you’ll start thinking differently about how people actually find work.”
--Anderson Schoenrock, CEO | ScanDigital, Inc.
From the Author
And you just know they won't help you!
You've seen the titles. Your eyes glaze over. You keep walking. Why do you just know that traditional "how to" books on finding a job simply aren't enough?
Here's why: job search is NOT a "one size fits all" process. Job search is often not even rational. You can write the world's best resume. Give the best interview. Your hair can be perfect. You might even be qualified. And you still don't get the job. How can How to Find Work When There are No Jobs give everyone an answer when the answers that count are all individual?
There's really only one title that matters when you're looking for work. The only title that matters: How do I find work? ME!
This book is different. Not a "how to" in sight.

And as a writer, I will also forever remember the advice to "add music" to my stories. Not literally, of course. It means making your story into a song others will respond to by finding the harmony within and the harmonies you've been part of in all of the lives you've lived. It's about "singing" that song so beautifully that an employer cannot help being moved. But isn't that also something we should do outside of the world of work?
If you need a job, buy this book. If you just want to live a richer, more vibrant life and change lives wherever you go...buy this book. It is a treasure trove.
This book will get you thinking and keep you thinking - it involves some self exploration, but will leave you feeling like a whole person - not just a job searching robot.
