Publisher's Summary

Don't settle...SUCCEED in the right career!

Are you stuck in an unsatisfying job? In the wrong profession? An industry that just isn't a fit? Get unstuck! Land a new career - one you're genuinely passionate about.

Switchers helps you realize that dream. Written by celebrated career coach and psychologist Dr. Dawn Graham, the book provides proven strategies that will get you where you want to go. The first step is to recognize that the usual rules and job search tools won't work for you. Resumes and job boards were designed with traditional applicants in mind. As a career switcher, you have to go beyond the basics, using tactics tailor-made to ensure your candidacy stands out.

The book reveals how to understand the concerns of hiring managers - and think like they do; craft a resume that catches their attention within six seconds; spotlight transferable skills that companies covet; rebrand yourself - aligning your professional identity with your new aspirations; reach decision makers by recruiting "ambassadors" from within your network; nail interviews by turning tough questions to your advantage; convince skeptical employers to shelve their assumptions and take a chance on you; and negotiate a competitive salary and benefits package - even as a "newbie" to the field.

Career changers face unique challenges that demand fresh approaches. Packed with psychological insights, practical exercises, and inspiring success stories, Switchers helps you leap over obstacles and into a whole new field. Want to pull off the most daring - and fulfilling - career move of your life? Listen to Switchers.

Practical Advice for Career Switch

Great advice on assessing yourself whether you're ready for a career switch, how hard the process can be, how to make best connection of your current skill set to that of your dream career, seeing the screening process from the employers' perspective of view, and practical working plans for switching. Very informative and useful guide for a career switcher. I found it helpful and would like to follow it to do my career switch from technical to business side.
