Do you have a plan if your job went away tomorrow? Do you know what value you bring to your employer? Do you love what you do?
These are the kinds of questions career expert and Founder and CEO of Human Workplace Liz Ryan helps readers answer in her new book, Reinvention Roadmap: Break the Rules to Get the Job You Want & Career You Deserve.
For the past two decades, Ryan has been writing about the changing workplace, careers, and how to get a job. After seeing the worries and concerns people have about their career as the idea of job security becomes a thing of the past, Ryan decided to write this book to teach people how to reinvent themselves professionally and take control of their career and run it like a business.
Reinvention Roadmap is an empowering, interactive, colorful, easy-to-read guide that helps you remember who you are, what you want to do in life, what your value is in the workplace, and how to create your own job security.
“Your ability to find a job that deserves you rests on your own understanding of your value — and your ability to speak up for your value when the situation requires it,” Ryan writes.
Once you have determined your value and the career path you want to take, Ryan introduces the tools that can help you get the job you want, which include:
- How to Find and Apply for Jobs
- Writing a Pain Letter
- Crafting Dragon-Slaying Stories
- Writing a Human-Voiced Resume
Reinvention Roadmap is a great resource for anyone who doesn’t want to be left behind in today’s workforce. For those who are about to enter the workforce, lost a job, are looking to switch careers, or just want to be ready for the unexpected, this book is for you.
