Career Advice you wish your mum had told you

by Karen Miles & Heather Miles

'CAREER ADVICE you wish your mum had told you' helps young women to start planning their careers and find the right job to suit their skills.

For most generation X and Y's, the opportunity to find their dream job is becoming harder. Gone are the days where people could work their way up the corporate ladder of their chosen company and possibly end up retiring in the same organisation around the age of 60. The stats say that this generation can expect to change jobs 29 times, work in five industries, and be made redundant three times in their lifetime.

This Dymocks BESTSELLER provides practical step-by-step strategies for dealing with common career crises, as well as personal stories from a range of career women. CAREER ADVICE is a bedside collection of career solutions. You can pick up the book at any page for guidance on issues including how to realise your potential, making mistakes at work, tricky negotiations, steps for starting a business, and strategic thinking and planning.

The book was launched by David Morgan, CEO Westpac Banking Corporation and the foreword was written by Australian entrepreneur, Natalie Bloom of Bloom Cosmetics.
