“CAREER RENEWAL” is the answer.
What's the question?

Renew your career with our book “Career Renewal”, “the ultimate self-help manual for the intelligent job seeker” (Nobel Laureate Roald Hoffmann), “the emotionally intelligent guide to managing your career” (Daniel Goleman, “Emotional Intelligence”), “a compass, a map, a gyroscope...a groundbreaking book” (Nathan Myrhvold, Microsoft).

“What spurs economic growth, organizational productivity, and individual satisfaction?” is the question, according to Stephen Rosen and Celia Paul, authors of CAREER RENEWAL (Academic Press, ISBN 0-12-59060-9).

Career frustration and dissatisfaction are at an all-time high in medicine, as a result of managed care, fear of law suits, medical malpractice expenses, long hours, heavy patient case-loads, and the depersonalization of doctor/patient relationships.

Features of the book that can help you address these issues:

  • Interviews with people who transformed their careers often, easily, successfully, and with great satisfaction;
  • How are their career behaviors and attitudes invented for themselves transferrable to you?
  • A “Career Well-Being Scale” that allows you to compare yourself against a gold standard of career satisfaction, to measure, improve, fine tune and (if necessary) alter your own career, “career well-being”, and “career health”;
  • Why “occupational mobility”(about 12 million people change occupations per year) advances economic growth, organizational productivity, and your career satisfaction by ensuring rapid response to rapid changes in the economy;
  • When should you say “my resume is not yet as good as I am”?

CAREER RENEWAL was commissioned by the Alfred P. Sloan Foundation for scientists, engineers, and other credentialed professionals like physicians, attorneys, and executives who find themselves at a career crossroads.
