Now What Do I Do?
The Woman's Guide to A New CareerBook - 2005
As featured in the Wall Street Journal and Woman's World -- "Now What Do I Do?" is designed to help women over 40 face the challenge so many face: How can I get out of a dead end job? Find a new career? Start my own dreamed-about business? Discover where I can make the most difference for the rest of my life? Written by a respected Boston career counselor who has specialized in women at this mid-life stage, "Now What Do I Do?" provides a new way of looking at the self, jobs, and opportunities because Jan Cannon firmly believes that an entire career can be started, developed, and completed in the active years before Social Security or retirement benefits begin. Dr. Cannon encourages women to learn about themselves and to value their years of paid and unpaid experience. While it includes the "nuts and bolts" of career research, resume writing, and interviewing, the emphasis is on developing a clear sense of one's strengths, talents, interests and mid-life goals and then finding the right job. The workbook-like format - illustrated throughout by examples drawn from Jan Cannon's clients - is easy to use and includes self-assessments and exercises. Its upbeat, positive message: You are never too old to move in a new direction.
