Coming Alive from Nine to Five is a practical guide that demystifies the career search process. Now in its fifth edition, this highly successful handbook has met the needs of a wide range of people - from students beginning college to professionals changing careers. In this edition, a new job chart inventory has been designed to help people target more clearly career areas of interest. A greater emphasis is placed on the challenges and opportunities that relate to specific job markets and industries, and how personality types can be related to job market potential. In addition, the focus on workplace diversity has been expanded to help dispel stereotypes about work roles and work environments. Key labor statistics and other time-sensitive data have been thoroughly updated, including new information on job sharing and self-employment.
