Houston, TX (Vocus) July 22, 2010
Paula Caligiuri, PhD, work psychologist, professor of human resource management and author of Get a Life, Not a Job, will be featured on Total Career Success, an Internet show on VoiceAmerica Talk Radio Network, at 11 a.m. Central on Monday, July 26. The show is designed to inform listeners and encourage them to achieve their career goals by featuring experts and business leaders to provide advice on job search and career advancement. A leading expert in global career development, Caligiuri shares strategies for career fulfillment including:
•Spending more time on enjoyable work
•Identifying long term career choices to match one’s skills and passion
•Transforming your current job
•Becoming “lay-off” proof
•Defining wealth-building activities
•Building an inspiring and financially secure career
Although some elements in the formula for career success have endured, such as conscientiousness, reliability, performance excellence, and possession of valuable skills, many of the elements for career success have change. In Get a Life, Not a Job, Caligiuri presents strategies based on the new employment reality and the real dynamics of today’s world of work. By understanding the new work reality one can effectively navigate it and take control of one’s own career destiny.
Rather than focusing on a series of jobs connected to employers, Caligiuri proposes focusing on financially rewarding activities that place ones interests, needs, talents, and motivators above those of any particular employer.
Caligiuri said, “By continually developing yourself for activities you personally desire, you achieve a freedom to pursue multiple career options simultaneously.”
“Paula Caligiuri is an expert in workplace and career solutions,” Sheryl Dawson, co-host shared. “Paula helps you decide what you want and shows you how to go about getting it.”
Ken Dawson, Total Career Success show host added, “Paula provides tips on how you can radically change your approach to your job and career.”
Dawson stated, “By redesigning your career you can tap your passion, gain fulfillment and develop a work-life balance that will lead to real financial freedom.”
