Raleigh, NC (PRWEB) October 1, 2009
You read it in the papers, hear it in the news - today's job seekers have it rough with layoffs, downsizing and an overabundance of qualified candidates for the same job.
"Most career advice books and programs for professionals in transition fall short when it comes to actually guiding them from where they are to where they want to be," says Dave Patterson author of Over the Gap and founder of D Patterson & Associates. "Over the Gap is different, because it not only shows jobseekers exactly what's needed for successful transition to a new career, it provides the tools and hands-on support necessary to become a sought after professional and reduce the employment-gap leap to a confident walkover."
In writing Over the Gap: An advanced career change, planning, and employment handbook for transitioning executives and professionals (ISBN. 978-0-615-31620-8), Patterson wanted to cut to the chase and present a streamlined system that would be effective for jobseekers who may be struggling. The step-by-step process in the book combined with the interactive tools enables transitioning and career changing jobseekers to create successful strategies to stand out from the competition. Purchasers of the book also receive free coaching and an assessment with a certified career coach to help focus and launch their efforts.
For professionals facing a layoff or career change, Over the Gap provides a winning formula to achieve competitive advantages that carry jobseekers through challenging times and changes in their career with:
- A systematic streamlined roadmap of what to do and how to do it
- Career planning, target marketing, tracking, and soft skills enhancement
- Personalized programs, free resources optional support and coaching to ensure success
- A tool kit for building crucial skills, branding and personal value proposition development
