Before any major life change, especially a career change, one must take stock of his or her own values, beliefs and motivators in order to reach set goals. Career Excellence is a comprehensive guide for those preparing to change careers. Unlike any other text of its kind, this guide takes the reader from the initial stages of making a career change to landing the job to success in the workplace. This text not only presents the information and tools necessary at the beginning of the job search- how-to’s on updating a resume, creating a winning cover letter, preparing a portfolio, and kicking off the job search - it also advises on career success once the reader lands the job. It advises on how to excel on the job by making decisions based on inner drive and includes tips on how to excel with new colleagues, how to impress the boss while maintaining integrity, how to build alliances, and how to continue to make decisions with honesty and consistency. Designed to help readers focus on their internal drive for initiating a successful job search, this unique resource will help them to change their career with an organized approach and with an opportunity for self-exploration. This straight-forward text is full of common sense solutions and is a must-have, motivational resource for any individual preparing for a career change.
