How to get any job with any major : career launch & re-launch for everyone under 30, or, how to avoid living in your parent's basement by Donald Asher( Book )

2 editions published between 2003 and 2004 in English and held by 383 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this book, the author debunks the myth that only brainy students with specialized majors find high-paying, visible careers after college. The truth is that plenty of average folks with general, liberal arts majors have gone on to find lucrative and fulfilling careers--and anyone can do it by following his advice. If you're just graduating, you'll learn to promote the skills you already have, recognize how employers hire and what skills they value most, and get influential people to help you. Or, if you're already in the work world, you'll learn to use internships, credential programs, post-baccalaureates, and grad school to jump-start a stalled career.--From pub. desc
How to get any job : life launch & relaunch for everyone under 30 (or how to avoid living in your parents' basement) by Donald Asher( Book )

4 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 364 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Donald Asher, America's career guru, believes that success comes from an alignment of passion and preparation. First tip: Your college major has very little to do with your job options. In fact, you can get to virtually any life-goal destination from virtually any starting point. Stephen Colbert was a philosophy major. Chad Hurley, billionaire founder of YouTube, was an art major. And while we're at it, Albert Einstein was a high-school drop-out. Still think your college major will determine your life path? Think again. HOW TO GET ANY JOB is the first book that definitively answers the following questions, and many more: A- What is "life launch" and how is it different from getting a job? --- B- Why do employers hire people like you? --- C- Which skills do employers value most? (They're not what you think!) --- D- How do non-tech people get hired and thrive in tech companies? --- E- How do you set yourself up to get promoted? --- F- How do you prove you have skills that don't show up on your transcripts? --- G- How do you get experience if you can't get a job, or have the "wrong" major? --- H- How can you get famous and influential people to help you? --- I- How do you hit restart if you get stuck in a dead-end job out of college? --- J- What should you do if you're a graduate and living in your parents' basement? --- K- What should you do if you're a junior to make sure you don't end up in that basement? -- Back cover
