Career Coach Says It's Time to Take Charge of Your Job Search, Your Life
Veteran journalist and career coach Jackie Jones urges job seekers of all ages to promote their strengths to find success and happiness in their lives.
Jones, a certified life coach, says she got tired of complaining and listening to her friends whine about why they were unhappy with their jobs, their lives and their futures.
“There are plenty of books that provide tips on becoming a more attractive job candidate, how to retool a resume, or how to look the part for a sought-after position,” said Jones, who has worked at many of the nation’s largest media companies, including the Washington Post, Newsday and the Philadelphia Daily News. “What they don’t tell you, however, is how to be as sharp on the inside as you appear on the outside. This book is designed to help you build the confidence to create a solid job plan.”
The 7-day strategy is built around an all-in-one, easy-to-carry textbook and workbook. It is a great resource for young people fresh out of school and trying to map out a strategy, those recently laid off or bought out, as well as people currently employed who want to make their current jobs more fulfilling or translate their skills to another industry. Each day has a theme: Day 1 – Find Your Passion, Day 2 – Make It Work, Day 3- Stand Out, Day 4 – Just Move, Day 5 – Sell Yourself, Day 6 – Get Coached and Day 7 – Game Day.
“My strength - and my joy - has always been in bringing order out of chaos and helping people get or stay on track professionally,”
Jones has faced her share of adversity, overcoming the doldrums of dead-end jobs and losing clients. But through it all, she has stuck to a basic philosophy: “If you focus on what you hate or fear, you’ll get more of it. If you focus on what you really want to do, you’ll find a way to do it.”
