How to Become Happily Employed

Barbara B. Vinitsky, Author, Janice Y. Benjamin, With Career Management Press $6.95 (0p) ISBN 978-0-9613630-1-7
The authors, both career consultants, assert that the procedures they outline here enable job seekers to ""minimize the fear and confusion while making the task of job hunting not only manageable but even enjoyable.'' Vinitsky and Benjamin urge readers to devise a ``job description'' of the position they would most like to find. The next steps are discovering actual job titles that fit one's criteria and scheduling informational interviews with individuals in related fields. There are pointers on writing a resume, interviewing and negotiating salaries and raises. Finally the authors discuss alternatives to traditional employment, including temporary work, job sharing and flex time. Recommended reading, lists of resources, checklists and worksheets are found throughout this worthwhile volume. Though the authors make few novel suggestions, their advice is logical and clearly presented. (April)
