Disaster-proof Your Career

Book Description

The very nature of today's organizational environment means that success is always to be laid primarily at your door; so too is failure. You have to get things right, as you may not get a second chance.

Disaster-Proof Your Career illustrated how, it you want to become - or remain - successful, inaction is simply not an option. It gives practical tips on: having the confidence to succeed; putting together a career plan; getting the most out of a job performance appraisal; ensuring that development and training is practical and effective; and learning new skills.

This essential guide will not only help you to take on new challenges and be an asset to your organization, but it will also give advice on how to obtain fair and satisfactory rewards for what you do, and guidance on how to be ever career-fit and desirable in the job market if you choose to move on to another employer.
