Careers guidance

As fast is the business world is changing, so is the search for the right job. Forces such as the changing nature of the employee/employer contract, globalization, consolidation, the quest for worklife balance, an ever-changing workplace, and lack of job security mean more managers are looking for new jobs more often. Yet developing and managing an effective job search can present a daunting task for the most experienced managers.

Whether searching for a new job or just considering a change, The Harvard Business School Guide to Finding Your Next Job offers a road map for job search planning and execution. Written by Bob Gardella, Assistant Director of Alumni Career Services at Harvard Business School, the guide covers all the key elements of the job search process-from creating a resume to dealing with the emotional side of job loss, from using references effective to staying motivated, and from using various search strategies to negotiating job offers. Practical direction is given for allocating time effectively and focusing on job search activities that are more likely to be successful.

Concise and comprehensive, The Harvard Business School Guide to Finding Your Next Job puts the vast job search literature in perspective for experienced managers and first-time job seekers
