People are still digging out after the massive storm of downsizing, mergers,
and redefinition of roles that swept through companies big and small during
But the sun is rising over the battered career
landscape. According to Barbara Moses, North America’s top career management
consultant and writer, there is some very good news about careers today:

flexibility to meet the individual needs of workers
- workers are able to bring their "authentic
self" to work, instead of donning a drab, gray corporate identity
and suppressing their unique personality the moment they walk in the

The Good News About Careers is resonant with knowledge about what really is happening in careers today.
Moses goes beyond the buzzwords and describes how you can be more effective
in communicating in a frenetic world; how to make the most of your opportunities
to network; how to prepare yourself for an increasingly uncertain future;
how to choose work that you will enjoy and at which you are likely to

Some of the questions answered in The
Good News About Careers include:
- what type of new worker are you
- what motivates the new worker
- how everyone can profit from future work

- what 20-somethings need to know about
work and careers
- how to respond to the intergenerational
values clash in the workplace
- how 40-somethings bosses can engage young
- how parents can career-proof their children.
And Moses takes a hard look at the most pressing
challenge facing people today -- how to achieve meaning and harmony
in work and life, and ensure future employability, while managing the
complexities of modern life.
