you must condition your career in order to compete successfully for a new or better job.
Stamford, CT (PRWEB) February 10, 2009
For the first time in your career, you’ll be able to increase both the satisfaction and the paycheck you bring home from work. That’s the promise of “career fitness.”
Peter Weddle’s latest book, Work Strong: Your Personal Career Fitness System (ISBN 978-1-92873447-5, $24.95) tackles the tough challenges and extraordinary opportunities of the 21st Century workplace.
The current decline in business notwithstanding, employers are still looking for and hiring those who have hard-to-find, critical skills and those who are superior performers.
Work Strong provides a systematic, comprehensive program through which every working person can achieve mastery over their career. And, Weddle argues, "you must condition your career in order to compete successfully for a new or better job."
Work Strong: Your Personal Career Fitness System is a career book with two unique twists.
1.) It not only tells you what to do for career success, but when, where and how to do it. Career Fitness includes both a revolutionary philosophy of work and a regimen of daily, weekly and monthly activities—career strengthening exercises, if you will—that empower you to apply that philosophy to your career. Using physical fitness as a metaphor, it introduces an approach to career self management that is appropriate for everyone from senior executives and seasoned professionals to recent graduates and those reentering the workforce after an extended absence.
2.) It helps you tap both sides of your brain in learning how to build a healthy career. It encourages you to use your reasoning ability on the left side of your brain by presenting all of the information and techniques you need to Work Strong in your career. It also encourages you to use your creative ability on the right side of your brain by presenting a fictional account of what it would be like to Work Strong.
All of the worksheets and exercise plans in Work Strong: Your Personal Career Fitness System are also available online at CareerFitness.com. In fact, the site offers a state-of-the-art array of career building resources, including your own personal locker for storing career information and documents, an electronic “career agent” who acts as your virtual assistant and advisor, the complete Career Fitness planning and status system, your own personal trophy case for recognizing your accomplishments (even if your boss doesn’t) and much more.
